e've all misdialed a number now and again. Usually, we get a simple "wrong number" message back and move on. But sometimes, the person on the other end is a particularly friendly stranger, or you end up with an invite to a new friend's Thanksgiving dinner!

That's exactly what happened to Charlyn Willis when she announced her engagement.
This is Charlyn Willis.
She lives in Savannah, Georgia and recently got engaged to her boyfriend (now fiancé) Dennis Aikens. They are adorable and in love and it’s so cute.

Charlyn Willis and Sarah Michelle Gellar don't know each other, but their paths just crossed in a magical way.
They bumped into each other over text message when Charlyn tried to share the exciting news of her engagement with her sister. Charlyn accidentally texted a wrong number instead of her sister’s.
And no joke, that number belonged to the one and only Sarah Michelle Gellar.
How insane is that?!
Far from being someone who just answers “Wrong number” and moves on, Sarah Michelle Gellar did the sweetest thing when she received Willis’ message.
What was she going to do, not craft a lovely and hilarious response to a woman who just got proposed to?
That’s simply not the Sarah Michelle Gellar way.
Instead, she posted the picture that Willis had sent along with a heartfelt message congratulating the newly-engaged woman…
