File under: If you're tired of hearing about Prince William and Kate the Commoner ...
Congratulations to Carol MacDonald! She's a dear young friend (I sound so Jane Austen-y) who just got engaged and will be getting married this summer, in New England, to Seth Hollis of AL (as in Sweet Home Alabama). Carol writes about their courtship, which included many Skype chats, here.
The future Mrs. Hollis and her musical family were mentioned in this piece. The current Mr. Hollis enjoys singing duets w/Carol, so he'll fit right in with the Macs.
