Most of all, I remember... I knew I wanted to marry Ellie when we were attending a UT football game, and she convinced me we had to drive to College Station to watch the Aggies play that night as well. Any girl who suggests attending two football games in one day is a keeper in my mind.
Then one day, Kevin came home early from Atlanta to surprise me and took me down to Gruene, Texas. We had lunch at The Gristmill and began to walk around the antique stores. In between two of the stores, there was a clearing that Kevin convinced me was worth checking out. As I got closer, I noticed a bench under an old oak tree with flowers. At that point I knew it was coming! He proceeded to sit me down on the bench, and he read me a letter and a passage from scripture before he got down on one knee. We spent the rest of the afternoon taking old timey photos and exploring Gruene before we went home to celebrate with friends and family. It was the perfect day!
