We're Engaged!

I am so thrilled to say Brent asked me to marry him. And I said yes! 

Brent asked me last Monday night, Jan. 9th, if I wanted to go for a drive. My heart jumped up to my throat, and I knew what was goin down. So, naturally, I said I wanted to go! We literally went like five minutes down the road from my house to the place we first met two years ago.

It wasn't glamorous, but it was oh so special and I absolutely wouldn't have it any other way. It was the quad of the apartment complex I lived in two years ago when Brent and I first met, so it was a sweet spot.

What's crazy to me is when he kneeled down to ask, man, it was like slow-mo for a sec and my life kinda flashed before my eyes, and all the engagements and proposals from movies I'd seen popped up, like its something that happens to those other people, but not in real life to me! But, he got down on one knee asked, "Will you marry me?"

And I said, "Yea.... yea, I will."

And it was sweet, and I cried, and it was awesome.

Brent gave me the ring on the Saturday after he proposed. I had not seen the ring until then, so it was totally special. I had told my best friend Kelly what I had wanted and she let Brent know all the details so he could get the ring without me seeing what it looked like till I had it on my finger. We actually took a video of the first time I saw the ring so you can see how it went...


  1. I have just watched your video 3 times! I want to watch it 300 times! A most beautiful ring celebrating a beautiful engagement. Congratulations to that lovely, incredible young man who is so very lucky to wed my lovely grand-daughter, Hannah. With love and all the best wishes in this world from your Granny Phoebe.

  2. Hey Hannah! I don't know if you remember me, but we had yearbook together at Hopewell. Which now that I think about it seems like it was a million years ago! I just wanted to say congrats on the engagement, I'm so happy for you! You were always the sweetest and I wish you all the best!
