He Put a Ring On It

 It's true...Kev proposed and I said YES!!!
I am still floating on cloud nine and could not be happier.

Ready for the details?
Sooooo
This past weekend we traveled home to Eastern Kentucky to visit my family. Baby Bro came in for the weekend as well and brought his girlfriend to mama and daddy's house for the first time. We had planned a very low key weekend involving elastic pants, time on the couch, good food, the UK vs. Vandy Game, more good food, Cranium and Taboo. Weekend's to my parent's house are just so relaxing and a nice and needed break from reality.

Friday night i literally crashed on the couch around 9:15. Exciting huh? Well this lilttle fact comes back up later.
So Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to a gorgeous snowy morning.
Kev and I decided to run a few errands around town and also go see my besite, Katrina, and her baby boy Trigg. Standard on a trip home.

It was snowing so pretty Saturday and Kev had mentioned us also going up on the Mountain to take some pictures with my new camera. I never thought anything of it because we had been talking about doing this for a while. There was such a pretty blanket of snow and I thought it would make for some great photos.

Now this just isn't any Mountain.
This is Pine Mountain baby. It's the 2nd highest peak in Kentucky. However, to me it is more than that. There are several outlooks upon the Mountain that overlook Whitesburg, my hometown. It is a place of nostalgia to me. I feel like "The Mountains" represent so much of who I am. Whenever I travel home I try my best to always drive to the top of the Pine Mountain lookout to appreciate the amazing scenery I grew up in.
So Kev and I drove up there and in the freeeeeeeezing cold and snapped some photos.
If you look hard enough in between the valleys you will see Whitesburg all tucked away in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains.

No place like home :-)

We were just breathing in mother nature.
We took a ton of photos, but let's be honest, that is not the reason for this post :-)

So we took this photo and I was ready to pack up and head home. It was like less than 20 degrees outside.

This photo is special because we snapped it just minutes before becoming engaged.


So I started to head toward the car and then Kev grabbed my arm....I turned around and he got down on one knee said some very sweet things and then asked me to marry him.
I was speechless, but of course I said YES!!!


And thank goodness I carry my new tripod everywhere I go because I was able to capture a pic or two of u to keep forever.

Our first pic as future Mr. And Mrs.


Ohmygosh I think I am still in shock.
I CAN'T stop looking at my hand.

It was so sweet that he did it when we were home with my family.  He knew how much I would want to celebrate with them.
And I also got to see my bestie just moments after.
So, so thoughtful.

I later found out that on Friday night when I had passed out at 9:15 that Kev had took my mama and daddy both on the back porch and asked them both for their blessing. My mom also told me that she had received an email earlier in the week from Kev explaining he was ready to take the next step, but would like to discuss all of it in person. He even sent mom a picture of the ring and told her how excited he was. He is so great!

and if you're wondering what that something shiny on my left finger looks like.....

he did such a fabulous job!!!

I have dreamed of this day all my life and I am just ecstatic. I can truly say I am going to marry my best friend and he is going to make me the happiest gal in the whole word.


Stay tuned....it's going to be an exiting place around here.
