Thursday, December 16th I drove down to spend the weekend with Austin and his family. I got there in time to pick up his sister from the airport with them. I hadn't seen her since she left for London in September, so it was a very exciting night for us! Since we were up so late, I was looking forward to sleeping in until my tired body woke itself up :)
Around 11:15 a.m. Friday morning, Austin came and woke me up.
"Come on, babes! Time to get up!" I dragged myself out of bed and got ready. Austin wanted to show me something. When I got in the truck, he had a cooler, rubber boots and a shovel in the back.
"Scan this in front of us. What stands out?" It took me a few minutes, but I finally saw a red ribbon on one of the tree branches. We followed the ribbons until I saw big tree set apart from the others. I could see a bouquet of red roses on the other side.
Inside, I had butterflies and adrenaline. I knew what was coming, but in the moments before it happens, what do you do?! You can't just shout, "YES! Of course!" You have to wait for your nervous boyfriend to say everything on his mind and ask you the question you've waited your whole life to hear!
