4: H O W W E M E T | Amy had traveled though North Texas in March and fallen in love with all the horse ranches. When she returned home to Kansas, she decided to research more about the area. She searched for local people on a social networking website to answer questions she had. Keith was one of the respondents. | He was the only respondent to elaborately answer all of her questions. Keith shared stories from childhood, social events, and many other instances with much fondness. The e-mails continued back and forth for weeks. E-mails turned into text messages, and text messages turned into phone calls. | 2008
5: JUST FRIENDS | Amy decided to return to North Texas in July to visit friends of the family. As the trip approached Keith found out that he would be home from college at the same time for his cousin's wedding on July 12th. Seeing an opportunity to finally meet, Keith & Amy agreed to attend the wedding together. They had a wonderful evening dining, talking, and dancing. | The next morning Amy received a call from Keith... "I had an amazing time with you yesterday. don't worry, because I already asked my mom, but will you come to the lake with my family?" Amy agreed to come out to the lake (just for the day) and ended up staying in the family camper for two nights. | And The Rest Is History
6: Amy grew up in Wichita,KS. She is a middle child and has two wonderful sisters. She spends much of her free time with her family riding horses and playing soccer. Her fondest memories are the times spend at her family cattle ranch in Eastern Kansas... feeding cattle, taking care of newborn calves, and roaming around on horseback. | Amy
9: Keith grew up in Lindsay, TX. He is the oldest, and has a younger sister. He spent his youth working on ranches hauling hay and fixing things. His fondest memories are the days he spend in Lindsay riding his bike around town, back-roading with friends, and playing football for the Lindsay Knights.
10: The Proposal | .............................................. | JULY 8TH, 2011 | That morning Keith asked Amy's parents if he could marry their daughter. They approved and the surprise began. Keith told Amy to be ready to go somewhere special at 6:30 that evening. The time came and Amy was skeptical because she hates surprises. Amy's dad took pictures of her wondering attitude. While this was taking place everything and everyone was getting into position. Keith and Amy traveled to the place of their very first date. Finally arriving, Keith took Amy's hand slightly stalling for the photographer. Keith lead Amy across the bridge out onto the point of the "Keeper of the Plains" in the middle of the Arkansas River, where he told her to look out into the water. | Keith stepped back and pulled the ring from his boot, then asking her to face him. Down on his knee, shaking with excitement Keith asked Amy if she would marry him.
11: Amy replied, "I think you know the answer to that question." From the banks of the river, Amy's sisters and friend, Laurien, watched and cheered in celebration.
12: Everyone then gathered at Newport Grill and enjoyed a wonderful dinner and engagement celebration hosted by Amy's parents. With everyone gathered around the table, pictures were taken, toasts were toasted, and ring showing was all a must.
