There are secrets and there are SECRETS

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

There are things that people have told me in confidence that I will take to my grave. However there are other times that knowing "news" causes me to have to cut myself off from the world to stop myself from sharing it.  A few years ago when I was planning my parent's 50th wedding anniversary I just COULD NOT talk to my mom daily (which is very typical of our relationship) so I dug deep into work and planning when she would call I'd text back that I was really busy.  When we did talk I'd keep it super brief because I was so afraid I was going to say something to let the surprise slip. 

I've been that way lately too.  I just haven't been talking to people, being on social media much or even blogging much because I was about to burst with a secret.  A secret that I wanted the world to know, but that I was waiting for my daughter to be the one to share with the world before I could talk about it. I knew she was engaged. But they decided to wait until Friday to tell the world.  There were a number of reasons they waited and those don't matter.

But I'm over the moon to be able to tell the world that my only daughter is getting married in May. We've been secret planning for weeks. The dress is purchased, the venue picked, the dj hired, the photographer booked. And now I can walk around and tell everyone.  

Of course I'm not happy because there is going to be a "wedding".  I'm happy that my daughter has found someone she loves that loves her back and that she's so very happy. That smile, I've been seeing a lot of lately. 

So between now and May I will of course be doing real estate stuff, but don't be surprised if there is wedding talk happening too.  What's some really great news going on in your life?

That would be hard to keep to yourself, Tammy, because it's close family. In business, I have no problem keeping things to myself. Even friends who want to "share" stuff with me but all of a sudden say "please don't say anything". Next thing you know, THEY have told everyone the same "secret". Life is strange. Congratulations on the announcement.
