As told by Lizanne...
"Last April, I was in Georgia at law school and Andrew was in Mississippi in pilot training with the Air Force. It was my spring break, and he asked me to meet him in Clemson on a Friday morning. He said that he just wanted to hang out together and give me my birthday present a little early since we wouldn't be able to see one another the following weekend. We met up at the botanical gardens and he gave me my "birthday present" - an empty mason jar. He explained that he knew I wasn't big on fancy presents, and that he had remembered me telling him about this mason jar idea I saw online. The idea was to fill a mason jar with memories on slips of paper throughout the year and then read them all together. I was so excited! I was so surprised he remembered another one of my silly ideas! He then lead me on a "tour" all around our spots in Clemson, where we filled the jar with things like "Going to football games and tailgating with our friends," "Spending time together downtown", and "Listening to the Zac Brown Band concert from our blanket on top of the dike". Finally, we arrived at the docks below the rowing center, our favorite place in town. We continued chatting and reminiscing on our fun times, talking about how much we missed living in Tiger Town. I was loving being there, celebrating "my birthday" and just getting to spend much-treasured time with my favorite person. Finally, Andrew said, "Last slip of paper, I have one more memory to add to the jar" He jotted down something, folded it, and went to place inside the lid when I interrupted him, "Um, excuse me, we have to read what it says, remember?" He laughingly played "keep away" until I was finally able to grab the slip and read, "April 6 2012, we got engaged at our favorite place Clemson- the place where we had our first relationship talk." Shocked, I looked up at him, on one knee, holding a GORGEOUS diamond, "Will you marry me?" I squealed yes, and we celebrated back at my house with family and friends! :) "
SWOON! One of the best proposal stories I've heard!
