I thought we were just taking some photos in the park for Christmas presents, until we walked up onto candles and rose petals that formed a heart, with the beautiful city of Nashville in the background. Next thing I knew, the love of my life, my high school sweet heart, and my best friend for the past seven years was getting down on one knee asking me to be his wife. After tears and a joyous yes, we heard screams from the pedestrian bridge where the sign “she said yes” appeared. As we walked onto the bridge, there stood our closest family and friends holding more signs of a timeline of our relationship. The last one was held by my dad saying, “December 5th, 2015. The day I received your parents’ blessing.” I smiled and gave my dad a huge hug, thinking to myself I am one lucky girl.
