She said “Yes!” 💍
@jack Wait, what?! Well, whatever it is, congratulations! 😀
@jack congratulations to both of you!
@jack oh my GOODNESS … many congratulations … will we get to meet her ?
@jack Mazel tov! Will this be the first Micro.blog wedding? (And will you be aiming to keep your vows under 280 characters? 🙃)
@JacksonOfTrades Thank you!
@derekpeden Thanks so much!
@JohnPhilpin Thanks. I’ll bring her by if I can pull her away from Facebook long enough 🙂
@kitt Thank you!
@matthewlang Hey, thanks!
@rnv Ha! I should have thought of this while we still only had 140! 🙂
@jack @rnv 140 characters each :p
@jack Congratulations, mine said yes a few minutes over midnight 01.01
@hjertnes Nice. I didn’t mention to her that it happened to fall on National Pencil Day because if I had she might have said “No” 🙂
@hjertnes Wait, this past 01/01? If so, belated congrats to you both! (If it was years ago then a very belated congratulations!)
@jack Whoo! Congrats to you both!
@jack Woohoo! Congratulations 😊
@jack a few minutes into this year 🙂
@jack Congrats Jack!
@jack Wishing you many, many years of happiness together.
@jack Thanks! I prefer to share personal stuff more when I feel like it instead of when they happen 🙂
@jack congratulations. Start of a journey 🙂
@jack Whoop! 🙂
@jack Yayay! Congratulations! Wishing you so much joy and love.
@jack Well played, Jack! A brave and lucky lady.
@jack Congratulations to both of you!
@jack Congrats to you both!
@jack Thank you to everyone sending such nice notes about my recent engagement. I planned to reply to everyone individually, but I had no idea there would be so many! What a wonderful place this is. Thank you so much for the kind words! My ~~girlfriend~~ fiance asked, “Who are all these people? Do you know them?” and I answered “I feel like I do know them, yes.”
@jack Hooray! Congrats to both of you! 🎉🍾🥂😀
@jack awesome news. Congratulations!
@jack congratuliations to both of you!
@jack 😆 it’s going to be a very large reception!
@jack A few years ago, I was in a coffeeshop full of strangers. At a nearby table, an older man was being interviewed by a young woman. They were close enough so I could just make out what they were saying if I tried. I wasn’t trying. At some point, his cell phone rang. With an apology to the woman, he answered it.
He flustered through a short call and then said to the woman, “Well, apparently I’m a grandfather.” His daughter had just had a baby. Those of us closer to him whispered the news to those further off, and within a few seconds, the entire coffeeshop full of strangers gave him a round of applause.
I would like to think that when someone says, for example, “I’m a grandfather!” or “She said yes!” that the natural human response is that of hearty congratulations. I would like to think that real community is easy to find, while toxic swamps of hate and fear only happen when something is broken.
Easy to find, but hard to maintain. Why?
@jack Congrats to both of you!
@jack Congratulations to you both
@jack Aw, congrats!
@rnv thanks for sharing such a great story
@jack Congrats! One of the best things that can happen in life.
@jack jack.baty.net/2018/frie… 🙂
@jack congrats! I asked the same question two weeks ago 🙂
@apulianas awesome! It’s very exciting, isn’t it? I’m trying to be all calm about everything but it’s kind of a big deal.
@jack It’s pretty cool haha. The Monday after, Rachel started sending me all these wedding planning documents and I thought to myself “I’ve unleashed the Kraken”
Because of next year being a really hectic year for us, we are looking at 2020 which gives us a lot of time to get things situated.
Congrats! One of the best things that can happen in life.
