Smoky Mountain Stories
I Said Yes!
Gatlinburg has and will forever be my favorite place in the world and the place I call my second home. In fact, I can't wait to retire there. Gatlinburg is the place I wanted to get engaged at. I constantly talked about it. Little did I know, my best friend and now fiancé we're planning the perfect proposal. It was September 2016. We had already been on vacation for a couple days and I had lost my hope of him popping the question this trip. However, he took our son, best friend and I on a hike up to Clingman's Dome about an hour before sunset. Clingman's was somewhere I had on our list to see because of the breaktaking views I'd seen on the internet. We made the hike and my was it beautiful. We took pictures, read the informational signs and talked for a bit, next I know the sun is setting and I turned to him down on one knee asking for my hand in marriage. I said yes!
