Henry and I always celebrate Christmas Eve together since our first year dating – as it was our “half-a-versary.” This year after he cooked me dinner we decided to go for a walk on Carroll Creek in downtown Frederick. There were Christmas lights every where. I love bridges and I have a particularly favorite bridge outside of an art center. As we stood together he took my hands and his and got down on one knee. He said “I always knew this would happen here. Lacey Mae Powell will you marry me?” As I said “Yes!” (Slightly in shock and disbelief” my best friends were suddenly there taking pictures and capturing the moment. It was the perfect proposal!
