one year ago...

My boyfriend told me that I had to wake up at the BUTT-CRACK of dawn, and get ready.  I did as I was told and got up, dressed, and dusted the sleep out of my eyes.  

Rhett then drove to a breakfast place that serves some good pies, pulled into the parking lot, and we waited.  


And waited.

(where we waited)

Then we finally saw some signs of life with other people, so we started getting out of the car, and then suddenly I hear Rhett start groaning. 

I turned around and saw him struggling to get to his knees and that's when he said the 5 words that stole my heart....

"So....you wanna get married?"

And of course I said YES!   I mean I had seriously waited long enough!  But it was well worth the wait, because then he revealed the other part of the surprise...

A hot air balloon ride!

So on 6/7/08, at around 5:30 in the morning, I became engaged to the most amazing man!  

I love you Rhett, It's been one heck of a year, and we have only grown stronger through it all!  

I can't wait for the many more to come!
