Last night Kelly wanted to go to "our bridge," which is just a tiny little footbridge over a tiny stream out in some trees that hardly anyone knows about. Before his mission we used to go there all the time when we wanted to talk or whatever, so I didn't find his request to go there weird. So we went and he pulled out a letter and said, "Here's the last letter I wrote to you on my mission" so I was excited and read it and he had just written about how grateful he was that I was brave enough to date him and share the gospel with him and then wait for him on his mission and he wrote about all the ways he has grown and the blessings he's received for serving. Then there was a little paragraph about how much he loves me and I've made him so happy and then it said, "So Dani, I have to ask you a question..." and that was the very end of the letter! So I looked up at him just as he was pulling a ring out of his pocket and he said, "Dani Marie Crouch, will you marry me?" And of course I said yes! We're engaged!!! And I love Kelly! And we're finally getting married! And the ring is perfect! And I love Kelly!
I smiled so huge the whole rest of the evening. Kelly kept saying he'd never seen me so happy before. Of course! He just freaking proposed!!!
