Our Engagement

This past weekend was the best weekend I have ever had. Richie and I went to St. George with his brother and sister in-law, Clay and Ashley, and their darling little boy James. We had a great time swimming, biking, and taking it easy. One morning we decided to go on a small "hike", but little did I know we were going skydiving. After driving for about 20 minutes, I asked Richie where we were going on this hike. He said that Clay knew of a great place and that we would be there soon. We pulled off the highway in Mesquite and moments later we were pulling into an airport. I was so confused for a minute until I saw the sign "Skydive Mesquite". I couldn't believe I was going to be going skydiving. It is something that I have always wanted to do. We got suited up and trained and then we were on our way.

Here we are with our instructors Fonz and Joe.

After Fonz pulled my parachute, he said to me "do you see the sign down there?" I looked down and saw this banner from 3,000 feet above.
Richie had jumped first and so by the time I landed he was there on one knee.

I still can't believe how beautiful it is.



After we came back from skydiving, I was surprised with a beautiful arrangement of flowers, my favorite cake, candles, Martinellis, crystal goblets, and a beautiful book.

It was an incredible day that will never be forgotten. I am so excited for our future together and couldn't be any happier! I love you Richie!
