I can not even explain the amount of excitement I have been feeling the past few days!! Wednesday, the Love of My Life asked me to be his wife!!! I pretty sure my face is permanently stuck in a huge smile!!! Here is what happened:
We both had to work Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving. We were heading that evening to Greenville to spend time with Chris' family for Thanksgiving before we headed to Rocky Mount on Thursday to spend time with my family. Chris had told me if I was able to get off work early to do it. So, when the opportunity arrived for me to get off work at 1:00, I took it. I then spent the next few hours, WAITING for Christopher to get off work! ;) When Chris got off work, I was all ready to leave, but Christopher kept dragging his feet. I was so confused, but I tried to wait patiently. We finally left Raleigh, and headed our way to Greenville. We were finally almost to Chris' house, when Chris said he was going to stop by his church to use the restroom before we got home. Now, mind you, Chris' church is less than two minutes from his house. I started thinking, something must be up. When we got in the church, Chris starting walking past the bathroom, and said he wanted to check out the sanctuary because his mom said they re-did it. By now, I had a very strong suspicion that my life was about to change!! :) :) :) We walked into the Sanctuary, and there sitting on the alter was a dozen red roses!! Before I knew it, Christopher was getting on one knee asking me to be his wife! :) :) :) Of course, as we are hugging and celebrating, Christopher's contact fell out of his eye! haha He claims I knocked it out, but just between me and you, I didn't! ;)
Now, let me just tell you about the ring, it is ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY, UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL!!!!! Here is a picture of it!!
It was so special to be able to celebrate with both of our families together! We had a blast, laughing and eating, and celebrating the soon joining of our families. After we ate, we headed back over to the church to try to get some re-enactment photos. We were all so giddy, we couldn't get any serious shots! But we sure had fun trying!
