Yes, you heard me right... Craig finally decided to man-up and get down on one knee! He fixed me dinner at his house (nothing out of the ordinary). He prepared an amazing Szechuan stir fry. After dinner he pulled out a giant fortune cookie. Inside the cookie was the ring! Needless to say I was very surprised. We haven't really worked out many details yet. We'll keep you all posted!
P.S. We thought you all might get a kick out of the sound effects... you can thank Craig for that!
Craig and I decided to kick off our Christmas season by visiting the house and grounds of Allandale Mansion (Kingsport's "White House"). This estate was once a 500 acre farm that raised championship Black Angus cows and Tennessee Walking horses. The tour featured a dozen beautifully decorated Christmas trees, an antique toy collection, and cookies and wassail!
Following our tour of Allandale Mansion, Craig and I went to Fall Branch Christmas Tree Farm to try to find the perfect tree. We had a lot of fun and ended up taking home a leyland cypress!
Once we got the tree home it was time for the fun part! It's amazing how much a Christmas tree can make a place feel like home!
