When I married into the Engel family, I gained my first (+ only) brother–James : ) Something I have loved about dating, getting engaged to, + marrying Caleb has been getting to know + now officially becoming a part of his family. A family that is so tight-knit, loving, fun, + down-to-earth. I feel truly blessed!!
James is Caleb’s younger brother by just two years + also his best friend. These two not only LOOK alike, but they have a brotherly bond that is really quite amazing. I love the way they encourage one another, have SO much fun together, + respect each other. James was the best man at our wedding + I couldn’t imagine having anyone else standing right by Caleb’s side on our wedding day : )
This past weekend, James graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Bachelor’s of Science in Packaging Engineering (Ooooofta! Over my head!!). But I am SO proud of all James has accomplished during his time at Stout (for example, he was selected for a 10 day, all-expenses-paid trip to Italy to learn about the history of Italian Packaging Engineering because of an essay he wrote while at UW-Stout)!! Talk about amazing–and being jealous–right?!?! I have no doubt that James has a very exciting future ahead of him–full of traveling, happiness, packaging, + family : )
JAMES–we LOVE you + are so proud of you!! P.S. We can’t wait to visit you when you move back overseas someday!! ; ) Happy Monday!!
This is the best picture I could get of James crossing the stage (he’s on the right of the screen, about the receive his diploma!!)
Officially an alum!! Congrats, grad!!
