I'm about 4 months behind on this (wow, it's been that long) but better late than never, right? Well, I hope so. Samantha and I got engaged on October 5, 2009 which happened to be our 7 year anniversary of dating. We spent the weekend at my families condo in Orange Beach from Saturday to Monday and we had a great time. We went to a very nice dinner on Sunday night (I almost proposed then) and thouroughly enjoyed the time alone with each other.
From there, she said "YES!" and I was THRILLED! She of course cried and said that she loved her ring and was so surprised. I have to thank Laura Bell and Joshua Moore, close friends of ours in Birmingham, for throwing her off from expecting it; they had been telling her to expect it closer to Valentine's Day of 2010. On the car ride home to Prattville to meet our parents for dinner we discussed dates and wedding party and then had a wonderful meal with our families at Longhorn. Below are a few pictures from a day that Samantha and I will never forget. Enjoy!
