I remember the morning we walked through the city together. You know, he said, leaning into me, there’s only love & what you do with it. & suddenly, like the first scent of green things at the end of winter, it was all around me & everywhere there were people with eyes shining & it was so clear they had been there all along that I had to laugh & wonder how I ever thought we could fail. ~Story People
On November 29, 2012, we went to Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens. I love the stunning Christmas scenes. I enjoy “Snowflake” our transportation through the magical night. After the trolly ride, Ryan suggested we watch one of the lake scenes. I said we didn’t have to as he appeared to be freezing. We walked over to the lake and he suggested I put down my things. He then put my hand in his pocket and began (what I thought at first was him playing with my fingertips) to put the ring on my finger! While he kissed me and told me he loved me. He also said, ” I do not know all the ways to tell you I love you but I want to spend everyday of the rest of my life telling you. Will you marry me?” Of course I said yes! How sweet. One day maybe I can get Ryan to tell his side of the story.
We had the ring custom made to what I wanted. Inspired by rings I liked but weren’t quite the one I wanted and my great grandmother’s ring. We have not set a date as of now we are just enjoying the moment.
