My brother Mark was in the neighborhood today, and for good reason:
One of his best friends was getting engaged on my gondola.
I'm not Hawaiian, but over the years I've developed a great love for the culture, and one of my favorite words is "ohana" - which means "family".
Today, Tiago Costa (a true "ohana" to the members of my family),
asked his girlfriend Lesya to be his bride.
She said "yes", and then about twenty friends and family members popped-up from behind things along the canal and shouted congratulations.
It was awesome.
I've been at this for a long time, but today's proposal was one of the very best I've witnessed.
My most sincere congratulations to Tiago and Lesya.
