On June 23, I left for Mexico with my stepmom, sister, grandma, and cousin. Little did I know, while I was gone, Jared was busy planning the proposal of a lifetime. We left Mexico on Wednesday, July 30. When we arrived in Springfield, it was rainy and cool. “We left Mexcio and return to this?” we all thought. As we drug our feet down the terminal to baggage claim, I had no idea what was waiting for me. As we walked into the baggage claim area, there was a huge crowd of people. It took me a few minutes to realize that those people were our family! I saw my sister, Kasey and soon-to-be sister, Taylor, holding signs that said “Welcome Home.” Then they quickly flipped them and I saw the words “Will You Marry Me?”
I literally stopped dead in my tracks. “Is this really happening?” I thought to myself. Then I heard Mark Barger playing “I Choose You.” Then, there he was! Luckily, he had it professionally videoed!
