Clint (James) proposed on my birthday September 22, 2016. The morning of he told me to get dressed and ready for a day full of events. He took me through a day of our favorite spots in Austin, Magnolia cafe for breakfast tacos and mimosas, then to my favorite pottery painting location Cafe Monet even though it was completely out of his element and he may not be the best artist.

As we were walking, it was incredibly hot especially on this warm September day. He maintain his composure even though I could clearly see he was hot and sweaty. Then we made it to the top of the mountain overlooking the best view and he start losing his composure.

Trying not to stutter and reaching into his pocket he pulled out the ring and said “This ring has been in my family for years, will you marry me” and I replied “Of course” and as soon as I uttered the words my mom, dad, sisters and brother came out from behind trees and bushes and at the moment I became emotional because I he knows how close I am to my family and they adore him.
