5 years ago...

I said "yes" to the man of my dreams when he asked me to marry him!  It's actually not until tomorrow but I'm not sure I'll have time to post. 

"The Proposal"
We had been at the lake with friends who asked us to stay for supper.
Tyler said he had packed picnic so we left and he started driving.
We drove and we drove and we drove until we arrived in Fullerton, NE.
We pulled into a place called "Broken Arrow Wilderness."
He said we were going to go on a hike and have a picnic and my heart melted because he had planned a date for us.
We hiked and hiked and hiked and appartently we couldn't find the cross overlooking a cliff where he wanted to have the picnic.  
Tyler asked if I had my camera and of course I had forgotten it...oops.
He knew I would want pictures so being the nice guy that he is, he ran all the way back to the truck to get it.
We returned and we found the cross and had a lovely picnic.
After the picnic he told me he wanted to read me a couple verses.
They were all about a husbands and wives and marriage...I was kinda starting to catch on.
And when I looked up he was on one knee and asked me to marry him!!
I was so happy that I started giggling.

Here we are in front of the cross right after he proposed, 5 years ago!

Then here is one of our engagement pictures. 

Wow I can't believe it's already been 5 years since you proposed.  
I've enjoyed every minute of it.
Even though we were young and not everyone agreed with us getting married so young, 
I wouldn't change a single thing about it. 
We've had plenty of our ups and downs and trials along the way
but they have only brought us closer together and strengthened our marriage. 
I love you Tyler!
