I can think of no better way to kick off the NEW blog site than to begin with this feature! Alex’s SURPRISE proposal to Kelly was one of the most detailed plans I’ve seen, involving more than just Alex himself. :) In order to keep the secrecy I communicated mostly with Alex’s mom. We planned and met and picked the perfect beach spot before the couple’s “vacation” up to the Panhandle. Kelly never suspected a thing. The plan was THAT good.
Speaking of the plan…X marks the spot. :)
Ingrid (Alex’s mom) had the duty of digging FOUR holes at the beach locale. The first marked with a clever “X” equipped with a mini shovel. Each hole contained a clue written in Alex’s hand that lead up to the final beautiful note. When Kelly finished reading that note, she turned around to see Alex on one knee with the prettiest ring you’ve ever seen.
Tears didn’t stop from all the happiness from EVERYone involved. But that didn’t keep us from grabbing a few “just engaged” photos. Needless to say, I’m in LOVE.
