Our Engagement Story

Erin has always been the sweetest, most thoughtful person. And, our engagement just proves how well he knows me and what I would like. It started out like a regular Saturday in which Erin and I decided to ride the motorcycle. We really like to ride out to Leiper's Fork, a historical community just outside of Franklin.

This particular day, October 28th, just happened to be exactly one year after our first ride out to Leiper's Fork. (I didn't realize this until afterward). That day, one year ago, was a very special one in our relationship. We spent the day just relaxing, enjoying each others company, looking at antiques, laughing, and acting like little kids. I even taught Erin to roll down grassy hills and then try to stand up really fast :)

So, here we are again, one year later, just running around Leiper's Fork. We went back to the cool old cemetery, got some hot chocolate, and enjoyed the pretty scenery. At the end of the afternoon we decided to go back and roll down the hill again and goof around. (Which wasn't a good idea with a stomach full of hot cocoa).

At the bottom of the hill Erin figured out how a way to get me to close my eyes (see below), got the ring out, and proposed. It was absolutely perfect, personal, and sincere. YAY WE ARE ENGAGED! :)

This is me blindfolded... I just think I'm taking a goofy picture :)

Erin did it too... he didn't want me to suspect anything :)
