Today is a very special day! Three years ago today, Ben asked me to marry him. 🙂 Most people don’t understand the engagement video so here’s a quick explanation:
Ben and I dated long distance (He was in Fort Worth; I was in Memphis — 8 hours apart). We saw each other probably once a month in person, taking road trips to see each other and meeting half way as much as we could! We sent each other letters, texted all the time, called every chance we got, and Face-timed each night! He always joked about asking me to marry him through FaceTime but I said he could only do it in person. 😉 So of course, when he asked me to marry him, he did so in person AND on FaceTime! Haha! He took me to our home church, Bellevue Baptist. They have a BEAUTIFUL campus. He had laid out this pretty, white blanket under gorgeous, tall trees and placed a purple orchid in between us, and set up our laptops across from each other. The orchid was symbolic because it was the flower he sent me with a note asking me to be his girlfriend! He also had his big camera set up on a tripod, but that didn’t seem out of the ordinary to me because he was ALWAYS planning photo shoots, being a photographer and all. 🙂 This seemed totally BEN, so I didn’t question it too much, but I may have had a hunch. 😉 What I didn’t know is that he sneakily was filming the entire proposal scene, and even filmed my face while he was asking me!! 🙂 This is a super sweet memory and sums up our entire dating relationship. And I love love love it, and YOU, Ben Peacock. I am so happy that you are mine, and that I get to spend every day for the rest of my life with you.
