My boyfriend's family goes on an annual vacation and decided to go to Gatlinburg, Tennessee this year to stay in a cabin on the mountains. They invited me and my son to come with them on the vacation. One day, while we were up in the mountains, we decided to go to a mine to look for gems. My boyfriend ended up finding a diamond, but I didn't even know about it! When we got back to the cabin, we had a nice dinner, and he gave me the diamond in a case. He told me that when we decided if we were going to get married, he would have that diamond made into a ring. I was so happy!
Later in our vacation, we all went to a local jamboree for a dinner and show. We sat in the front row and had to fill out a raffle ticket. Later in the show, they announced that they had picked raffle winners. I wasn't sure what was going on, but they called both me and my boyfriend to come up to the stage. When we went up to the stage, they gave my boyfriend the microphone, and I was so confused because I had no idea what was going on. He then started talking in front of hundreds of people about how he loved the life we had and our family. He said he wanted to expand our life together and got down on one knee to ask me to marry him with the beautiful diamond ring. Of course I said yes! Tears of happiness rolled down my face because I was so excited! George and his family had the whole thing planned. We have the DVD of the engagement, and his sister took a lot of pictures including one where George is on one knee!
