And she said "Yes!"

The day you've all been waiting for, okay, maybe it's the day I've been waiting for, has finally arrived...It's official-I'm engaged! Here's the story:

Every day this past week Grayden had been surprising me with a rose. Each rose was a different color and each had a note of what that color meant and how that applied to me. Let's see, there was white (humility), yellow (friendship), peach (admiration), red (beauty), pink (grace, joy), and purple (youth, new beginning). Yesterday we headed out to have a picnic at this lake that is next to the highway right as you drive into Spokane. I've always wanted to try to find out how to get there. So, after driving all around the outskirts of Spokane and spotting many other lakes, we finally found the one I had been looking for. So, we parked by the side and had a picnic in the back of his truck (do we sound southern?) Then, when we were finished he said he had another rose for me and asked me to close my eyes. Then he gave me the rose, with a card and inside the card was a ring tied by ribbon. So, he got on his knee and asked me to marry him. And of course I said, "YES!!!"
That's the story. I'm SO excited!!!
