how they asked
I was supposed to go the botanical gardens with a few girlfriends because, you know, everyone wants to go there early February. Truthfully, they convinced me to go because it was $5 and one of my favorite restaurants was right around the corner. It turned out to be a very cold day – even for Texas! But alas we visited the botanical gardens. We walked around for a little and then we turned a corner and I saw him. It was one of those instincts that you can’t explain – I just started to run! I literally ran in to his arms and he said “let go – let me do it”. After a few more seconds, I let go and he got down on one knee.
He said, “Bailey, will you spend he rest of your life with me?”. I’m almost positive I either said yes or nodded because he stood up in affirmation and placed the ring on my finger. Out from the bushes came my parents, cousins, aunt and uncle and his family flew in from North Carolina. After an hour of taking pictures and celebrating at the gardens, we went to that favorite restaurant of mine – but…the reservation was for more than just four.
