On Monday, August 21st, we experienced the Great American Solar Eclipse 2017. While here, just north of Chicago, we didn’t experience totality, and the peak of the event was marred by cloud cover, I was privileged to be part of an event that eclipsed the eclipse for my family. That event was the proposal/engagement of my cousin Rachel and her man, Jason. Through months of planning and scheming, we (Jason) managed to pull of the surprise at the eclipse viewing party at Rachel’s school, where she is an Assistant Principal. Here are a few moments from that afternoon. Click on any image to embiggen.
