hello dear readers! well, i teased you with a little picture and then left you hanging. if you read any of my besties blogs you definitely read a little bit about the big engagement party {here, here, here or here}. but from the bride to be's perspective, i can honestly say it was the most perfect day.

after leaving work a little early, A and i began the trip up to lexington. we stopped up at windy gap (the younglife camp that we met and where we work a few weekends a year). i was under the impression we were stopping to visit a dear friend. while that was true, we were also stopping so A could pop the question. WG has a little island with a big old willow tree and a wooden bench. surrounded by a winter wonderland, A got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. it was so great. i couldn't have been more excited.

moving along - we got back in the car for the 4 hour trek up to lexington. i was so very antsy to get there, as one can imagine. we ended up getting to lexington at about 10:30pm. upon walking into jen's house, i was greeted by all of my loved ones. a handful of dear friends and my mom and sister (dad couldn't make it) were all there for a surprise engagement party. it couldn't have been more perfect and i couldn't have been anymore surprised.

i'll let the pictures do the talking.

the most perfect engagement story ever. :)
