HE PROPOSED! … OF COURSE I SAID, “YES!”
We were finishing up our weekend at the Pocono Mountains. Daniel, Jordan, Danny and I had drove up Friday night to spend the weekend together. What I thought would be just our annual Christmas tree cutting ultimately turned into a day I will never forget.
We arrived at Walker’s Tree Farm in Lehighton, PA, grabbed our necessities, and headed down Prancer Dr. We found two awesome looking tree’s right next to each other and got to work. I set up the camera to record our family ritual. Danny started to fuss. So trying to distract him I started singing, “If your happy and you know it.” He was getting better but his poor little hands were so cold. Jordan was holding the tree waiting for Daniel’s call to slowly push. As Danny calmed down a bit, I squatted down to see the progress of Daniel’s sawing, and he came out from underneath the tree and thats when it went down. 😀💍
I was in complete shock! It’s hard to get surprises around me and he did it!! How did he keep this in all weekend? After he asked, I don’t even think I answered till minutes later! I just cried like a BIG BABY!
Afterwards, we headed to lunch at Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA which is where I took this photo.
Visiting Walker’s Tree Farm has always been a time in our relationship that I looked forward to. It was a time where I knew that he was slowing down at work. It was a time where we would get away and enjoy each other after the long work year. It would be weeks before we were going and I would always be reminding him, “X amount of days left till we cut a tree down!!”
He knew this was by far my favorite part of every year.
So where do we go from here?!
We are in no rush to wed; we have a house to build. But planning will definitely be in the works real soon.
To my dearest Daniel;
You’ve beyond exceeded anywhere close to my expectations of a man. You have shown me unconditional love from day 1. You love me when I’m at my worst, my best, and in between. We have learned that being away from each other is nearly impossible. That our time together is irreplaceable. I can’t wait to spend every rest day of my life with you. I LOVE YOU.
This Christmas will be very meaningful this year. This will be the first Christmas engaged, however, the last Christmas in our current home.
I made sure to take this picture of my ring hanging on the Christmas tree that Daniel proposed to me next to.
There are barely words that can express my happiness and gratitude I have for this man.
