Holiday Celebration Part 3... A Daughter-In_Law, The Greatest Gift Of All

Pin It

I knew I liked her and I knew something odd was going on around me.  Chris had that "smile" on his face and a lighter step.  I couldn't put my finger on it and the staff was hush hush.  Which around me, depending on how severe the gossip is they can be hush hush.  And Bethany avoided me, she stayed under my radar.  I never thought much about it until Derby Day two years ago.  Bethany, Chris and their friend Henry were going to Louisville and man were they decked out.  While they were gone, someone said something as I was passing about them dating.  HaHa me being the crack investigator, as I am, I knew now what that smile was about.

Chris and Bethany have now been dating for almost two years and I couldn't be happier.  Anyone reading my blog for the first time, Chris is my son.   He has a wonderful heart and a great sense of adventure.  Yesterday, Chris got down on his knee (with Bethany's dads approval) in Melt (their date place) and asked her to marry him.  He will make Bethany a wonderful husband.  She deserves none less since she is such a wonderful person herself.  They have that click.

Chris is now the General Manager at Arnold's and is also in charge of events and social media.  He has been a part (and I credit many) of turning Arnold's into a thriving entertainment mecca of the wonderful City of Cincinnati.  Bethany is a server at Arnold's and also a dance instructor.  She is as hard of a worker as anyone. I am thinking this is the perfect setup for a reality TV show. 

I am done writing my blog for the rest of the year.  Chris can look for guest bloggers (which do better than me).  I was going to go strong with all the things I love about my job, my life and Arnold's. My life at Arnold's has allowed me to have this wonderful life with family, friends and all the things I need.  I am grateful beyond believe to live my life one day at a time, with serenity, to share my stories, hope, dreams and yes, food with all of you.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you have given me.  I welcome Bethany into our family with open arms and can't wait to live my future with her in it.  Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and the Happiest of New Year.
