The Sunday before Josh left for Iraq on September 15, he told me that he had to help his brother set up a deer stand at their family farm. He wanted to come and pick me up at my parent’s house afterward and take me back out there to ride 4-wheelers.

I wasn’t in the mood to go, but my dad (who already knew what was coming) convinced me to go. After riding around on the farm for 20 minutes, he took me to the lower field. The grass was up high, but as we turned the corner, I saw that he had mowed out an area and set up a table with pictures of us, wine, candles, and a dozen roses. At this point, I was surprised but only thought he was doing something nice for me since he was leaving in a few days; a proposal was the furthest thought from my mind.

I turned around and he was pulling a beautiful tiny box out of the back of the 4-wheeler. He told me that for the past few months he had been lying to me about wanting to get married to throw me off from what he was about to do.

He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! I was giggling so much because I was so nervous, but I said “YES!” with no hesitation. In that box was the most beautiful ring I have ever seen and I can’t beleive that he did it all on his own. What an amazing man and an amazing proposal. The proposal spot means so much to him, as it is his most favorite spot to be in the entire world. Although we won’t be together again until next September, I can’t wait to marry the man of my dreams!
