The Best Day

This past Sunday, Harrison and I GOT ENGAGED!!!!!!!! It truly was the happiest day and I am so blessed that the Lord allowed Harrison and I to cross paths at our huge university. Sometimes it seems so crazy that I found him out of 35,000 people, but sometimes it seems like we were just destined to meet. Our very first class (bright and early at 8:05 AM) on our very first day of college... we were in that huge lecture hall together. Biology 181. I don't remember ever seeing him because I was trying to be the "good student" and sat on the front row. I would have fit in much better with the group he sat with, considering I almost fell asleep every class. Our circles were never really that far separated and the luckiest day of my life was when they converged.

Our engagement was very "us" which makes it all the more special to me. I always told him that I don't want a public proposal- I just want us two, no photographer, even, so that we can just enjoy the moment with each other. He definitely took that to heart!

We were in Greenville for the weekend for Sarah and Justin's beautiful wedding and decided to go kayaking on Sunday. Harrison's dad had told us to check out Merchants Millpond State Park a few months ago, so we thought that there was no better time to go than Memorial Day weekend while we were closer that direction. We enjoyed a beautiful two hours paddling on the millpond. The pond itself is 760 acres and almost 200 years old. The black water is dotted with bald cypress and black gum trees... and the occasional alligator (although we didn't see one!).

After kayaking we had a picnic in the woods (see... very secluded and just us!). Over pizza and nachos lunchables, Harrison got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him! It was an incredibly special moment and we both are ecstatic for what lies ahead!
