13 years ago, on December 25, 2002, these two love birds got engaged. Look how young we were!!
We were wrapping up spending time with my family. The day was getting later and later. I had plans, but they were going to happen at Kristen’s parent’s house in Hartselle, AL.
And we still had to do Christmas there.
We rushed out of my family’s house – Kristen not having a clue as to why we were rushing. No one did.
We got to her parent’s house late, and I was anxious. I couldn’t tell you one thing that anyone got that year. Except for one thing I gave.
After “family” Christmas, Kristen and I went up to her room to exchange gifts alone. With just a little bit of time before Christmas day was over, I got down on one knee and asked her the most important question I’ve ever asked anyone – “Kristen, will you marry me?”
If you’re wondering, she said yes.
She said yes.
To this day, it gives me chills…in a good way. To know that this awesome lady, this God-fearing, beautiful, loving woman said yes, makes me feel like the luckiest man in the entire world.
Christmas has always been special, but since that night, it’s been even more special.
May God bless you all on this most special of days.
