The Proposal:
Susannah and Mitch’s relationship began ten years ago, starting off as a summer romance that rekindled the following summer. Throughout the next eight years they kept in touch, even as Mitch went on to Mississippi State to play baseball and Susannah competed in Miss Alabama and attended school close to home. In September 2009 Mitch reached out to Susannah via Facebook after having not seen her since 2005. Their relationship was rekindled and within three weeks they were back to the “I love you’s” of their earlier summer romance days. Mitch began playing professional baseball in 2010 and on November 12th, after the World Series, he and Susannah went to the Smokey Mountains for a relaxing weekend. When they arrived at the cabin, Mitch feigned needing a nap and asked Susannah to take one too. When she awoke, Susannah found herself alone and went looking for Mitch, finding instead groups of photos of them with notes hand-written by Mitch, leading from her bedroom door to the top of the stairs. When she reached top, she found Mitchell standing beside an empty picture frame. Before getting down on one knee, he asked Susannah if they could fill a frame on November 12th for the rest of their lives. Her answer was a resounding, “Yes!”
