What a week!

Gee, golly! What a week it has been! Last tuesday I was working hard to get my portfolio together for an interview downtown for a possible internship in the summer. Wednesday came, and I drove downtown to be told "Welcome, when would you like to start!?" At this point I started working hard at figuring out my schedule and when I could graduate. On Friday I met with my graphic design hero, Micah Kandros. I learned some really awesome stuff from him. We met and had coffee at Crema downtown. On Friday night, my family took me out to celebrate and I watched videos and played games at my brothers. Saturday morning at 7 AM Daniel and I went to the flea market to look for props for my "Ballerina in a field" photo shoot with Tori. We ended up going to various vintage stores and garage sales, and the only thing I bought all day was a book. :)

After leaving Goodwill, Daniel told me he wanted to try one more store out. He said "Its only going to put us fifteen minutes behind." I wasn't too happy about it, because I was fighting the sunlight for my photo shoot. So we drove...fifteen minutes went by. I got stressed. "Ridgetop!?" I said. "I've never even been to Ridgetop! I have to go home!" We kept driving....
We pass a sign that welcomes us to Greenbrier. "Greenbrier!? There are kids riding four-wheelers across the main road!!" ...I get more upset. ... We keep on driving...  Welcome to Springfield... "You are stressing me out." I tell him. ... . . He says nothing. We finally pull up to a private property off a country road and I am absolutely positive his I-phone has given us the wrong directions, as we are sitting in front of a fenced in drive way. He gets out to open it....I dont know what to do. We drive down this long personal driveway and I say "Daniel, I DO NOT like this!" We get out of the car and he says..."Just go with it...Its a tree house..."
Well thats kind of nice. I think.

We walk over a swing bridge to a platform held up in a tree, hanging over the river. When he says he has a question for me...He gets down on one knee, and asks me to marry him. I almost faint. (I have been up for a while, I haven't eaten a lot, and I did just get down off of being angry..so I am feeling overwhelmed) ... I say YES. (of course)!

After that, we get to tour this fabulous tree house. The woman who owns it told us that the reason it got built was "My husband and I decided he was going to be eight years old, and I would be five." (how cute is that!?) It was a beautiful place, and so personal to her. She had a wall of puzzled tiles that her and her husband had worked together. This made me cry, as he died a year ago. So I got engaged. In a tree house!! YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE TREE HOUSES!!! Here are some pictures of my photos with Tori. And some other things
