Who doesn’t love surprises? Nathan called me at work on Thursday to tell me we’d gotten a package (he assumed it was something else I’d ordered for the wedding), but I didn’t recognize the name of the company from which it had come—Red Envelope—so I told him to open it.
Turns out, it was a lovely engagement gift from his brother Ernie and sister-in-law Maureen: and even better, it was a wine tote with our name on it: The Schoonovers. While I’ve been a Schoonover for awhile, it was because I’d changed my name, not because I’d married into the family. So this was really special.
The wine tote is awesome! It’s quite large inside and comes with a corkscrew and four glasses. Rest assured, we’ll be using it our wedding weekend so we can have our own little wine bar in our room–and a few snacks. It’s insulated, too!
Awesome! Thank you, Ernie and Maureen, and we can’t wait to see you in September!
