Congratulations Carrie and Nate!!!! I love you guys!!!!!

My best friend just got engaged last night, and I am THRILLED for her!!!!! Her sweet boyfriend (fiancee now, but boyfriend at the time) is a photographer. He has spent this last month doing lots of couple pictures for all of his friends. Well, since one of his good married friends who also dabbles in photography was coming out for a visit, he arranged for him to take come cute couples pictures of Nate and Carrie. This was an ingenius way of making sure that Carrie would be sure to look all cute (not many girls want to get proposed to when they don't feel pretty at the time) and to ensure that the moment was captured forever on film. After taking a few pictures together, he pointed out the beautiful sunset to Carrie who turned to admire the view. While she was looking away, Nate slipped out the ring that was in his pocket and got down on one knee. When Carrie turned around to find out why Nate was on the ground, she found Nate with a ring. He said, "Carrie, I have been waiting my whole life to ask you this question. . . will you marry me?" The rest was all tears and other giddy newly engaged antics. I am very excited for them- they are a beautiful couple. I wish them all the happiness in the world, and I can't wait to have some married friends around here to hang out with :)
