Cuz... we're engaged!

We were on vacation last week in the Smoky Mountains. We went to this specific area he had in mind on Father's Day (no reason for the date-- it was just a date that the sun was out). We were right up on the banks of this cute little stream and he told me to take some pictures- as I was distracted he got the ring out. When I turned around he was all teary eyed and asked me. I was shaking and of course said YESSSS!

Then I saw my ring! It was the ring I had told him not to buy- b/c I felt it was too pricey. Long story short, he bought it right in front of me. I had no idea! I saw the ring, fell in love then he and the saleswoman were "talking" about various things... and apparently he was just signing all the paperwork. I L.O.V.E. this ring. I have stared at it for about 8 days straight now. It is just the most beautiful thing that I've ever seen. Not to mention it symbolizes the best thing in my entire life.

We finished up our wonderful vacation and on our way home we stopped in to visit his parents for a few days. (They live 2.5 hours away from us) I got to meet all of his extended family in a cookout that his parents threw for us. It was just a great great time.

Let the planning begin!!!!

Here's a picture. I've not messed with it too much... as we were on vacation- and I don't have a camera with any fancy settings- but the SPARKLE on this ring is to die for. He keeps asking me who all I've shown it off to since we've been home.... I think he likes it too!!! Love Him!

I've spent most of my day trying to weigh the pros and cons of a destination wedding OR a small local wedding. If only I could win the lottery!!! I've swayed 100% to going back to TN and doing it and now I'm thinking I want to be a bit closer to home (like 3 mi. away from my parents' house hehe) . Decisions!!!

I grew up around the Smokey Mountains and there is no more romantic place to propose! How wonderful! It's so sweet he gave you your dream ring even though it was a sacrifice for him.

I'd say definitely he's a keeper. :)
