Cambre and I went fishing one night and were having fun just sitting and talking, waiting for the fish to bite. He asked me to go get a jig out of the tacklebox, and although I wasn’t sure exactly what I was looking for, I figured I’d be able to pick it out once I got there. I hopped up, walked over to his truck and opened the lid to the tacklebox. I didn’t see any fishing equipment, but instead I saw the most beautifully written poem I’d ever read. Once I finished reading, I turned around and saw him on his knee with a gorgeous ring. He asked me to be his wife and I immediately said yes! We were so happy and excited, and had no idea what we had just agreed to do! 🙂
We were engaged for just under a year before we tied the knot at the same place we were engaged. We spend our engagement living in separate states while he trained for his job and I finished school. It wasn’t ideal, but we made the best of it. He came to visit every weekend and we talked on the phone all the time.
After our wedding, we moved into our house together and set up our home.
