Nats Is Getting Married!

Domenico received the call from our daughter Natalie on his mobile and thought heck what has happened, she would only phone the mobile in an emergency!
A bubbly excited voice on the other end said that Chris had proposed to her whilst they were having a romantic picnic on the beach with the sun setting...aww, he is so sweet. She said she was crying and laughing at the same time and it all felt quite surreal.
I feel so old, our first born getting married !
Chris and Nats have been together for 5 years now since she was 17, we stumbled across them one evening after Domenico and I arrived home after a night out. Domenico walked in on them as they were snuggled up on the sofa, he turned to me with a very concerned look on his face and said 'there is a boy in our house with Nats !' and being the protective father, felt a bit strange. There was nothing to worry about though as Chris is lovely and they are perfect for each other.
So it looks like we will be heading back to New Zealand for the wedding this time next year.
The first thing Domenico said though was 'no bambino's before I'm 50!'
