    Mike & I moved to North Carolina 3 years ago so I could go to grad school at Duke. Our favorite thing to do in North Carolina is hiking. We moved from South Texas where it is really flat so the moutains here amaze me. I love being on top & looking at the view. So it was perfect that Mike proposed to me on top of a moutain with an amazing view.

    His mom & sisters came out to see us for a vacation. We took them hiking on a moutain called Max Patch, right off the Appalacian trail. Its a bald moutain, so you have a 360 degree view on the top. Before we got to the top, his mom said she wanted to rest so just Mike & I kept going up. On the way up he proposed. It was great that we had that moment private, but they were there afterwards to celebrate with.

    This was June 21, 2007 which is why I really want to get my wedding date reserved for June 21, 2008. Hopefully I get that confirmed soon.

    I can't insert a picture without it being huge. The picture in my avatar is from that day.

                    It was great that it fit us. We went to the UK & France in March. I thought for sure we'd get engaged in some romantic location on the trip. Once we were there, I was so glad we didn't get engaged. It just wasn't us. We were so busy being tourist that it just wouldn't have been right.

                    My WC should be at work now. I'm calling Mexico again. I really want this set. They answered the phone in spanish & that got me super excited about being in Mexico next year!
