The Icing on My Finger

Well this weekend was one of the most important weekends of my life. Fletcher asked me to marry him! It still doesn't really feel real, even as I typed that I thought how crazy it sounded! But here is how it happened...On Saturday we had a full day! And looking back its amazing how normal Fletcher acted. We woke up early and went to a farmer's market in downtown Birmingham, then we went and ate lunch at Big Blue. Then Fletcher went home, to "mow the yard" and Lace and I went to the pool. Fletcher came to pick us up and we were going to go eat sushi downtown for dinner. Lace had her heart set on going to Vulcan, so Fletcher said it was on the way to dinner so we could go then. So we get to the top of the Vulcan and Lace says something about her mom's car battery dying and then Lace made herself scarce. So Fletch and I were just standing at the top looking over downtown Birmingham and then he said "Hey Steph, look over there..."

I turned and looked at Fletcher and said "What?!" And he got down on one knee and told me that he loved me for the first time ever and said some other sweet things and then asked me to marry him. And I told him I loved him too and said yes! Then we walked around the corner and found Lace...who was heaving crying! It was sweet.

Then Fletcher asked if we could go home to show his parents before we went to eat sushi. So I of course didn't care what we did. I was just not knowing what to do with myself. I kept saying "do I need to call people? What do I do?" So I started calling family members and by the time I had called all them we were back to Fletcher's house. I walked in and there were tons of people there! Some of fletcher's friends and almost all of my friends. There were some that couldn't make it (and we missed them!) but it was so fun. My mom and Frank also made the trip!

It was a great time to spend with friends and family. Lace and Fletch were such great secret keepers! I was shocked!! And the ring is unbelievable! It couldn't be more perfect!

So there you have it. And we have set a date!
November 6th, 2010.
