We met on Valentines day in Kentucky (where I currently live). Will was on his way up to the National Farm Machinery Show and he stopped by on his way up to meet me for the first time. My cousin's wife had grown up with Will in Mississippi (where I'm from originally) and Will and I had talked on the phone about 2 weeks prior to him coming to Kentucky. My first impressions of Will was that of a true southern gentleman..very respectful, kind, caring, and chivalrous. He continues to make those same impressions on me each day.
How We Got Engaged
We got engaged a year after we met on Valentines day. Will and I planned to go back to the National Farm Machinery show and to spend the weekend together. Will drove to my house on Valentines day and was here when I got off work. I gave Will his Valentines present and he had mine all wrapped up and gave mine to me. We had been planning to go look for and get a new gun for me and haven't gotten around to going to get one yet. I opened my present and He had bullets wrapped in a crocs shoe box. When I opened it he said, "haven't you been wanting a gun.?" As I got to the bottom of the box, the ring box was in there, and when I opened the box up, Will asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!!
About the Ring
My ring is perfect. It's even more perfect that he shopped for and picked out the ring all by himself. I had no clue that he was going to propose that day! It is a square cut diamond with rounded edges. It's beautiful!
Our Relationship in Three Words
Will says "completely awesome"! :) I agree, and also say fun loving, respectful, and caring.
Our Shared Interests
We enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my nieces. I also love being on the farm with him when he's working. We also enjoy cooking, going to the lake, riding the gator around the farm, and taking short weekend trips.
Our Favorite Date Night
Usually going to dinner together and spending time in person together since we live in different states right now.
What Part of the Wedding Are You Most Excited About?
Sharing the day with all of our family, friends, and loved ones and having them to be a part of that day with us! The special moment that I'm looking forward to is going home with Will at the end of that day as my husband. I can't wait to have him to come home to each day!
