What a weekend! John asked me on Friday if I wanted to spend the weekend in his hometown, Snowflake, Arizona, to celebrate Pioneer Days with his family. We drove up that evening, about a three-hour drive of nothing but beauty! On Saturday, July 19th, after a day at the park and eating BBQ and playing baseball with siblings, John took me to see the fireworks show. He found the perfect place, only about half a block from the fireworks park and all alone on a picnic bench. It was the perfect view! After the fireworks stopped, John nudged me to stand up, and I thought we were leaving. But then he got down on one knee and proposed! He said he had been thinking about all kinds of one-liners that he could say, but none of them seemed to work. So he simply said, "Miss Micah Parkinson, will you marry me?" I was crying, of course, and I said, "Yes!" It was a long night not being able to sleep from excitement, and even now, three days later, I still feel like I am floating! I am the luckiest gal in the world to get such a great guy!
Eternity is going to be pretty great.
