(This is not a surprise announcement, they've been engaged for over a month - wedding dress purchased, plans made etc. I'm just a slow blogger these days).
Anyway . . . they've known each other for 3 years. They've had a long distance relationship for most of that time. (642 miles apart for 1 year, and 2800 miles apart for 2 years). Since they met, Kyle has served a mission in the Dominican Republic. Rachel has finished 2 college degrees, her bachelor's and her Masters, Kyle has moved to Arizona, they've both started up new jobs this month, Kyle is jumping back into school, AND they are planning a wedding. We are all so happy !!!!
