The Proposal Story!

I've finally gotten a chance to sit down and write out our proposal story! Things have been so crazy around here with the engagement, Christmas and my birthday!

Here's how it happened...

We decided to open presents on Friday, the 23rd, since I had to work a half day on Christmas Eve and after that we'd be running all over town that night and the next day. And let's be real - I love to open and give presents early.

So we give each other the big gifts first. I got him the Clemson cornhole boards and he got me the closet organizer I wanted. Then we moved on to the stockings. I thought maybe if it were going to happen, it would be like the last gift I took out of my stocking. But when the last thing I pulled out was a Yankee candle, the thought left my mind. 

I started talking to Brady or something and didn't notice that Cameron had gotten up and walked away. He calls my name and asks me to come into the kitchen for a second. I take my time getting up and walk that way. I turn the corner and see him down on his knee with a ring in a ring box!

Through some nervous and excited laughter, he tells me how much he loves me and asks me to marry him. Through some shocked and exited laughter, and lots of tears, I say of course!

 Our parents came over about 30 minutes later to celebrate with champagne! Only they and my bff were in on the surprise! After we called and texted everyone the exciting news, we went downtown to celebrate! It was all so surreal.

Our first monogram! - from Emily.
