Most of all, I remember... As Jon and I sat in traffic on the way home from Dallas, we decided we would take our usual Green Belt weekend picnic/hike once we got back to Austin to let Bonnie, our dog, stretch her legs. I tried to talk Jon into going to a friends house for a cook out, but he unassumingly convinced me into the hike.  We dropped our things off, got the picnic basket ready, and jumped in the truck.

Jon led the way through the Green Belt hiking trails.  We eventually landed at the beautiful look out point we went to on our third date back in March 2012.  We spent hours there that day quizzing each other, trying to learn more about each other.  It was the perfect place for Jon to propose.

I sat down as Jon tied Bonnie to a tree.  As I was enjoying hummus and a glass of wine, Jon sat down next to me.  He looked at me, and asked, "What would you do if someday was today?" I chuckled and said, "I would probably die." I didn't believe that "someday" was going to be that day.  "Someday" was a running joke with us referring to the day we would get engaged.

Jon took my hand and asked me to move away from the cliff face we had our feet dangling over.  Jon got down on one knee, and from that point on, I can only remember repeating the word "YES".




Most of all, I remember... Matthew's proposal was perfect and an absolute surprise; I had no idea it was coming! I had been begging him to take me horseback riding again so one of our friends let us borrow their ranch and horses for the day of January 10th, 2013. After we had ridden around through the fields and sunshine we tied our horses up and Matthew had a surprise campfire made for me with rocking chairs and blankets! There were also street signs made with our names, a plaque with pictures of us and one if our favorite quotes by John Wooden based on 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. He then said many sweet things, prayed, got down on one knee and popped the question!




Most of all, I remember... Bennett proposed to me on the Friday of 2012's Memorial Day Weekend.  There were flowers and a card waiting for me when I got home from work that afternoon...the card said that I should pack my bags for "a long weekend at The Broadmoor!"  We were living in Denver at the time, so this resort was just a couple of hours away in Colorado Springs, and it is such a treat to get to go and stay at such a beautiful hotel.  I was so excited to be going there, and I turned around to give him a big hug and thank him for the surprise trip.  He replied that he "wanted to spend the weekend" with me... then he got down on one knee and continued the sentence with "...and the rest of my life." I cried tears of joy for approximately 45 minutes as we called to let family and friends know that we had just gotten engaged.  I felt as though I was walking on clouds all weekend!  We were so excited.
