Our Engagement Story

It was our nine month anniversary, yes we used to have a month anniversary every month. :) Anyway, it was revival at our church and Adam was on staff so I assumed he would go and then we could celebrate that weekend or just later that night but he said he wanted to "skip" revival and take me on a date instead. So, we went to Carrabba's and it was so yummy and then we went to TCBY. All of this was just typical for us. Well, I take that back, Adam was on a college intern salary so we did not go out to nice restaurants all that often but this was not extremely out of the ordinary.

After dinner, Adam told me that he wanted to take me to Cameron Brown park in Memphis and we could just look at the stars because that is what we did the first night we ever hung out. I did say something about it being kind of cold that particular night but I did not think anything about it really.

Well, this is what I saw when we pulled up.

I actually said to Adam, "Aww, somebody must be doing something special tonight." He said, "yeah maybe so." and we walked down this path with candles and you cannot see them in the picture but there were flowers lining the walk way as well. When we got to the end of the bridge to where we would ususally cross to go to the spot we liked to sit at there was this table and when I saw it I knew what was about to happen.

Adam had set up a cd player that was playing "On a Night Like This" by Dave Barnes and other love songs but this is the one that was playing when we walked up. Adam was soo nervous he forgot to get down on one knee but he did ask me to marry him and I was shocked because I did not pick out the ring or anything.

Of course I said, "YES!" and we were soo excited! I think Adam did such an amazing job with my ring! I was sooo proud of him. He could not aford a huge rock but I did not and do not care at all! I wouldn't trade my ring for anything in the world because I know he spent lots of time picking it out just for me and he really picked something I love!

We were so excited! We called everyone we knew!

Also, we have the pictures and a video that I need to get on here. Adam said it was on an external hard drive at his work. Anyway, he had our friends Landon and Jess (Kaylee's mommy) there filming and taking pictures but I did not know until after he had proposed! So fun! Great job Adam!!

Our "real" engagement pictures are copyrighted so here are so other pictures we took at the beach while we were engaged.

I love you Adam and I'm so proud of you for going all out for our engagement! It is definitly a night I will never ever forget!
