I am linking up with Neely from A Complete Waste of Makeup for her fabulous holiday blog challenge. The first day challenge is: Fave gift received EVER. This challenge may be a little silly but I am really trying to get into the blog world and thought I would try this out. Looking back over the years of Christmas presents I can say my favorite gift every was my engagement ring:) Dave and I went out the day after Christmas to what I thought was just going to be snowshoeing. We had spent Christmas Day with my whole family in Grand Rapids, MI and went out the next day to Traverse City. I had just returned from living in India where I was teaching so I was really really excited to spend some one-on-one time with Dave and to go snowshoeing. He was really nervous the whole drive but I had no idea what was going on and was still a little jetlagged so I didn’t notice at all. We had a great breakfast and then went and rented snowshoes. We then changed in the bathrooms and I remember he took forever. We hiked for about 5 minutes and then we stopped. He took some stuff out of his backpack and said he had a surprise. He did this all the time so I didn’t think anything of it:) Then he got down on one knee and I honestly thought he was joking for a second….but then he proposed. I don’t remember much except crying, laughing, and exclaiming are you really serious???? He gave me the most beautiful ring and I of course said yes. December 26th of this year will mark 6 years later. Thanks for such an amazing Christmas gift babe!
