He told her he would not be home before Christmas. The demands of school and work would keep him an entire state away from her until Christmas Eve.
The weekend before Christmas, her best friend convinced her to go to lunch...at "their restaurant." "That's our restaurant," she told her friend.
"Yeah? So?" her friend replied, with a smile.
At the restaurant the waiter would deliver to her a scrolled message on parchment paper. This message would send her on a scavenger hunt...to their favorite waterfall on their river, finally to the schoolyard, where it all began. Where they met, and their love would blossom.
When she came into the schoolyard, there he was....
"But, you're suppose to be in Tennessee......."
"No, I'm suppose to be right here, at this moment, with you...."
Congratulations to our sweet girl, and her new fiance.
It's going to be a busy year!
