I'm newly(LAST SUNDAY!) engaged and leaving for Africa tomorrow!
The engagement story
Nathan went home to Texas for a few weeks to paint his parents house build a fence and such like that. He told me he was going to be gone til the 29th late or the 30th. Which let me tell you bummed me out. This was the longest we had been away from each other since we started dating. The first time ;).
So... Sunday my sister and mom ask me to come over to my parents house early to do our nails and finish sewing my skirt. I got there a little late... like normal. I was talking to everyone and facing the front door when out of the corner of my eye I see Nathan walking up to the front door. So naturally I dropped everything and ran right to him and gave him the biggest hug possible and fought off the tears that were coming up. When I finally let go he immediately dropped to his knee right on my front porch! I started hyperventilating and finally let all those tears flow free and he ask me to marry him! I don't remember exactly what he said... I was kind of in a state of hysteria but I know he ask me and I know I said yes. I've never seen him so nervous in my life. It was the sweetest thing ever and just so us. I never thought he would be able to surprise me but boy i was wrong. We were both shaking so much it took a while to get the ring on my finger!
So here are a few pictures...
More post to come from Africa!
