Our Engagement

  • Engagement!

    On July 4, 2015, Daymon and I went to the Annual Independence Day BBQ at his parents house. This was a normal yearly get together with friends and family to BBQ, visit and set off fireworks. We had been together for about two years at this point and we previously went to look at rings a couple months prior, so I kind of thought it was coming eventually.

    During the BBQ my Dad showed up but Mom was out of State for unseen circumstances. We were all talking, visiting, cooking and watching the kids play.

    Daymon took my hand and stood me up, he starting talking but couldn't get out the words he wanted and just kept saying how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He got down one knee and asked me to marry him, and of course I started crying and said Yes!

    What I didn't know is that everyone at the BBQ knew about this, this was all planned everyone had their phones out, taking pictures and video taping the whole thing. What was very special for me is that my Dad had my Mom on the phone the whole time to hear everything! Even thought she was States away and knew he was going to ask, she was able to hear everything and all my cousins, aunts and uncles she was with was able to hear as well.
