Proposal

So………..

/
/

I have news……..

/
/

/
/

I’M ENGAGED!!!

/
/

/
/

I’ll post the whole story complete with many more photos later, but for now I thought I would share the outline with you!

/

Wednesday evening I went to SWITCH (the youth group at LifeChurch.tv) as I do every Wednesday.  When I got home, I knew Bethany wasn’t there, but I was surprised to find all the lights off (we usually leave a light on for each other so we can find the keyhole!).  While I was trying to find my house key in the dark, I caught a glimpse of candles in the living room.  From that point on, it was a bit of an out-of-body experience.

/

/
/

/
/

/
/

In the middle of all the candles were pictures of Colin and I from the very beginning of our relationship and a letter.  After reading the letter (which was lovely, of course), I followed the instructions in the PS which said “now go to the backyard!”

/
/

/
/

I followed the tunnel of twinkle lights (which had photos of Colin and me hanging from them) to my backyard where he was waiting with more candles.  Of course he looked extra handsome in his nice clothes, and you can see from these photos that I looked the opposite…I won’t tell you how long it had been since I showered.  He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!

/
/

/
/

I said yes (obviously) and we went to look at all the photos from our relationship that Colin had hung on the twinkle lights.  Oh, and I forgot to mention that Jillian Edwards was playing the whole time–magic.

/
/

/
/

/
/

I later found out that our dear friend, Brian Lawes, was hiding the whole time and taking photos.  You may have guessed that he took all the photos you see here, for more of his work (he’s a videographer) you can look here.  We were so blessed to have him there to capture everything!!

/
/

/
/

Brian wanted to take some more photos of us, which turned out lovely if you ask me.

After that, Blake and Bethany came back from watching the Thunder game, so we got to celebrate with them!

Then we took some serious photos….just one really.

/
/

I am so blessed to have these people in my life, especially my sweet fiance’ (woah, that’s so weird to say!).

/
/

/
/

Colin, I can’t wait to start this next part of my life with you!  Thank you for surprising me with such a lovely proposal, I love you!

/

/

If you read all of this, you get ten points from me, remind me later:)

/

/

I’ll share more photos later, but for now…hooray for being engaged!
