I will note DATE on the calendar. We would be very proud to attend. This is a big deal.
Immediate thoughts: He said nothing about B, but B will definitely be there, as I said in my email.
He said "WE": does that mean my mom too? I sent the invitation to him, figuring he would be willing to come and meet B more so than my mother would. Maybe "we" means my dad and my brother? I doubt he has discussed this with my mom yet. It's now been over a year since she sent me that letter saying she couldn't have a relationship with me if I married B, and since then the only time we have spoken was when I ran into her briefly at my cousin's wedding when she was polite to me and talked to me for a whole 2 minutes during the entire wedding.
Trying not to get too excited about this...in a weird coincidence, my graduation date is also my one year wedding anniversary, so that means there is a distinct possibility that on the same day I get my PhD and celebrate my one year anniversary with B, B might meet one or both of my parents. Nice!!!
