A “Beautiful Modern Family”

A “Beautiful Modern Family”

Retired U.S. soccer star Abby Wambach is engaged to Christian mom blogger Glennon Doyle Melton. The blogger made the announcement on her Facebook page over President’s Day weekend. “Abby and I have decided to hold hands forever,” she wrote. Wambach and Melton went public with their relationship last November.

Melton split with her husband of fourteen years in 2016 and Wambach split from her wife of two years, Sarah Huffman, also in late 2016. Wambach and Huffman received notoriety when the former couple shared a high-profile kiss after Wambach led the U.S. women’s soccer team to victory in the 2015 World Cup.

Melton said that Wambach, “…loves me for all the things I’ve always wanted to be loved for.  She’s just my favorite.” We are a “beautiful, modern family,” Melton wrote.

A Reason to Keep Your New Year’s Resolution

If you need another reason to keep your New Year’s resolution of going back to the gym, Nico Martina and Mikey Sinclair just gave it to you.

Martina and Sinclair met at Fitness First in Sydney, Australia and also just got engaged there. Martina used the help of Kate Elizabeth Proposal Planning. The proposal is documented in a four minute video which stars out with pair just casually working out. Hired dancers dressed as fellow gym rats start the flash mob. Martina joins and then gets down on one knee and pops the question to Sinclair. Spoiler alert: He says yes!

Martina told How He Asked that the proposal was also a way to send a message that “love is love” no matter what your sexuality is.

Congratulations, Nico and Mikey!

Watch the full proposal here.

Inspirational Bystander

Inspirational Bystander

Inspiration has been found this holiday season from an innocent bystander.  Jess Rodriguez recently proposed to Chelsea Miller at the Art Institue of Chicago.  Jess’ brother Carlos shared a photo of the engagement on Twitter and the look of pure joy on the background woman’s face has been re-tweeted and liked over 400,000 times.

Plenty of people took to social media to congratulate Jess and Chelsea, sharing how the bystander’s reaction warmed their hearts. “Congrats to them both,” a woman named Lauren wrote. “And loving the reaction from the older lady in the background. What a wonderful thing to witness.”

Jess told BuzzFeed that she didn’t notice the woman was sitting there until she looked at their photos and said,”Whoever she is, we are so thankful of her pure reaction. She made our moment even more special!”

Unfortunately, fake GoFund Me pages have been set up in the couple’s names. Jess took to social media to warn the public and report these pages. As for the public’s request that the couple open a post office box for people to reach out, Jess said they don’t fee safe doing that. “As a same-sex couple we have received love and hate. We still feel unsafe to open a post office box and receive dangerous packages. I really hope you understand.” But Jess did thank everyone for the positive love and support and stated that they have chosen a date!

Congratulations to Jess and Chelsea! An thank you Ms. Bystander for the support to our community!
