love story // the proposal scrapbook

if you missed love story: the wedding (o2) you can find it here.

i decided to back up some & include a post about the scrapbook Thomas made me when he proposed. it is seriously too good to not be shared! i found the pictures i took of each page of the book when we got engaged. enjoy!

"i wanted to create this book to tell you how much i love everything about you. you are beautiful, caring, compassionate, patient, and a true example of a sacrificial Christ-like servant. i have enjoyed every moment that we have spent together and look forward to many more years. i love you more than words can express!"

"Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God."
Ephesians 5:1-2

"i love the pictures that we take together. i'm glad that when we started dating you talked me into taking pictures! in this book i have put together a few of my favorite pictures."

"i love that you care deeply for your family and friends."

"we are blessed with loving and supportive family and friends!"

"Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving."
Colossians 2:6-7

"i love that you enjoy long walks and days outside in the park. i love spending time with you!"

"i love the day that we spent painting and laughing at my failed attempts to be an artist! it was one of the most memorable and fun days early in our relationship. a day that i will always remember!"

"i love the nights that i get to see you dressed up ready for a nice night spent downtown. celebrating birthdays and anniversaries have been such a special time. i look forward to lots more! i also love that you like bowties!!"

"i love that you don't mind being silly with me in front of a camera. i look ridiculous most of the time...but i love looking back on them and laughing at them with you. i love seeing you smile!"

"He answered, 'Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, 'Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.'"

"i love our long walks together when we just get to spend time together alone and talk. i could talk to you forever and never get tired of it!"

"Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony."
Colossians 3:12-14

"i loved getting to see you every day for an entire week at the beach. spending every hour of the day with you is something i wish i could do every day!"

"i love how you try to cheat and look at the camera before we take pictures. you have gotten caught a few times though! and we can never keep a straight face afterwards. but it is fun to laugh at our awkward photos! i love that i can laugh with you."

"i loved our trip to Charleston for our 6-8 month anniversary. even though it didn't go as planned i had so much fun. our road trips are always memorable. you took care of me that day and you were such a blessing and encouragement when i did not feel well. thank you."

"i love getting pictures of just you! i love seeing you every hour of the day. i think about you all day and pray for you and our relationship together. i pray that we will continue to grow closer to Christ together and through that closer to one another. you are a constant encourager and my best friend."

"Robyn, you are my love / this much i know is true / you are my one and only / whom i will jealously pursue / i love you more each day / and always will for life / i'm so happy that i found you / i can't wait to call you wife with that being said..."
