Congratulations to newly-engaged Kelly and Jake! I hope they know each other well enough — they’ve only dated seven short years. 🙂 Of course I wanted to know their engagement story (and you do too, right?) so first of all, Jake picked out the beautiful ring all on his own (nice job Jake!), and secondly he carried it around for months just waiting for that opportune time. The short version of their story is that he proposed in a hot tub at their favorite out-of-town place. While Kelly knew a proposal was coming one day, she never knew the when or where or how … a little exciting and a little maddening I imagine. I liked this couple instantly … their love was real … they were real … and just were just down-to-earth relaxed people who love the outdoors, love to snuggle, and love to laugh. Does it get much better than that? And if you think Jake looks like Tim McGraw, I did too! Congratulations to a beautiful couple and may you have a wonderful time planning your wedding!
