We're Engaged!

Tyson asked me to marry him last Saturday, December 29th. It was a total and wonderful surprise to me. We are sooooo excited and very close to confirming a date. Stay tuned...
I will definitely keep everyone posted with the details.
He proposed while we were out hiking at one of our favorite spots, Umstead Park. It was just perfect. He had the ring in a box in his backpack. I was speechless for a second, then I cried and said "yes!" That night he took us out to a wonderful dinner to celebrate.
Enjoy the pics!

My Favorite Season is Here

Fall is by far my favorite season, and I've been making the most of it. Last weekend Tyson and I went and stayed with some friends in their log cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. The trees were in full color, and it was BEAUTIFUL! We had a great time of relaxing, eating great food, being spiritually refreshed, and drinking in the beauty of God's magnificent art work. We went for a 5 mile hike in the mountains along the Blue Ridge Parkway while we were there. We saw streams, rivers, trees, and SNAKES (a big one that slithered right in front of us on the trail). See the picture below.

This is the view from the front porch of Scott and Becky's cabin.

Here we are on our hike. There was a pretty little stream behind us, but we accidentally stood in front of it for the picture, oops.

Take a close look and you will see the snake we came across. I promise it was bigger than it looks in this picture.

Highlights from my Texas visit

It seems like this summer is just flying by. My trip to Texas was jam packed with the big trip to New York squeezed right in the middle, but of course it was great to see family and friends. I hear Kyler is still talking about New York on a daily basis. We truly had a wonderful time. He did so well to be completely out of his comfort zone and in such a new environment.

I went to visit my grandpa while I was home. He is 84 now. It was great to visit with him. He recently had a stint placed in his heart and I think it's really making a difference.

My nieces are a hoot! Little Khloe follows her big sister around and wants to do everything she sees her doing. They are both so sweet and fun to play with.

I am back in Raleigh and enjoying taking some time off. I have been working on my photography and I'm taking my first class beginning in September. It's once a week for three hours plus field trips. I can't wait!

Good bye New York

Hi, this is Kyler. I can't wait to come home and see ya'll. New York is a nice place, but nothing's better than home. I miss ya'll, but I've had a blast. We did alot of stuff: The Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, we rode a taxi, went to Times Square, and did lots of other stuff. I can't wait come back home and tell everyone all about it.
