a dozen pink balloons

My brother proposed to his girlfriend on the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday. The plan was to have people hand balloons to her as they walked across the bridge, each with a note from my brother attached. It was so cute. We had a few friends help but mostly recruited strangers as they walked in their direction. She said yes!

[ thanks to my friend Kathryn Whiting for the great pictures ]

Oh my gosh! It totally looks like Ludacris was in on the secret! If that is not him, you should just say it is. Because that would be even cooler.

So I read this the other day and loved it! So cute and sweet. And they are such a cute couple (look like it anyway) Then today I was looking at the blogs I have saved for ideas and pulled up "A cup of Joe" blog and see the same cute balloons and story. I just thought it was funny--you probably already knew it was posted. But your brothers cuteness is just poppin up everywhere!
