Savannah was under the impression Jackson would be with his family in Texas for Christmas. She was wrong! ;) Jackson flew from Texas to Tennessee and landed 8 hours before Savannah's flight landed. Jackson and I met up on Christmas eve to plan his perfect proposal at Savannah's grandparents' farm. Jackson is so sweet, and he wanted everything to be perfect for Savannah. There was a 100% chance of rain scheduled for Christmas morning, so we had multiple rain back-up plans. I assured him that even when it rains all day, the rain seems to stop when it needs to. Later in the evening, when Savannah and her family had made it to Tennessee, Jackson left and stayed in a guest house.
On Christmas day morning, there was thunder and heavy rain, and I prayed over and over for the rain to let up. Jackson and I met at her grandparents' house, and he began to set up the rose petals and get ready. By this point, our thunderstorms had turned to barely a mist. We were so thankful! Savannah's grandmother had requested that all the family be dressed for a Christmas picture by 9 a.m. Jackson, hidden from view in the house, stood outside the barn. Savannah was told there was a surprise gift for her in the barn. She walked out to a rose petal trail leading her to Jackson. He got down on one knee, she said yes, and the rest is history!
