The journey of Shane Eubanks and Crystal Alred
HOLY MOLY!!!! I just came home all tired from a three hour drive and walked sleepily into my front door to what initially looked like a little mess (hehe) and then realized there were white and red rose petals leading up my stairs! They led me to my living room where the first of many clues was awaiting me. These clues were so creative, they led me all over my house to places that reminded us of times we have spent together. Each beautifully wrapped clue (red velvet Christmas boxes)led me to another and the final clue led me under the tree where a BEAUTIFUL coffee table book was wrapped. This book had First Corinthians (such a touching and personal verse) all through it with matching pictures of us (our relationship thus far). At the very end of the book, it asked me to marry him!!!!! The book is on this little bloggy thing somewhere. (Wowweee…my hands are shaking so hard right now it is difficult to type!) I then just started to boo-hoo (I’m such a sap!)and he gotdown on one knee and said a whole bunch of precious stuff and asked me to be his wife! I’m gonna be a “wife”!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, I couldn’t have imagined a more perfect proposal from a more perfect guy. I know this is corny, but he does “complete me”. He’s my blessing, my best friend, and I love him very, very much! I have so many people to call (so many of you already know!!!) and he’s kinda wanting to open HIS presents!
Thanks so much to everyone who had a part in this wonderful start to many, many more memories!
