It was a moonlit night on a warm, sandy beach. The palms trees were swaying gently back and forth........um, nah.
So what is our "engagement" story? It's pretty simple, really. We just decided to get married. On February 11, 2005, we realized that was what we wanted to do. We told no one but Jeff's mom and brother (actually I told my mom that we were going to get married, but didn't tell her when). Those two weeks before we got married were probably the hardest for us because of the fact that we knew we were going to be in big trouble when we got back and everyone found out. Unfortunately, there were circumstances that I won't get into and we just decided to literally "skip town" and get married. We started making plans to go to Gatlinburg, TN. I bought outfits for us to wear, purchased Jeff's ring, made travel arrangements, and did a ton of work at school to get ready for my absence (sorry, Laurie). I'm pretty sure that I didn't sleep or eat during that entire time! In the meantime, Jeff was putting a rush on my ring, and preparing the house for my arrival. Since no one knew we were getting married, it was going to be a shock to my two roommates when they found out that their roomie was no longer living in their house! There were a lot of things that, looking back, we could have done and wished that we had done differently, but the end result was that we left on Thursday, February 24, for Gatlinburg for an incredibly romantic weekend. And that will be another post!
