Military Man Proposes

My name is Tiffany Roeser and My fiance's name is James Graves. We met 3 years ago on a crazy saturday night at a country bar in Texas. I was just there with my sister just killing time trying to get out of the house and find something fun. A friend of ours worked security at the bar and we went along to laugh at all the drunks. I was standing with my sister watching the drunks fall around the dance floor when a gorgeous Kenny chesney lookalike comes up and asks me to dance. I don't dance. I simply said no thank you and he looked confused at the reply but walked away. Not ten minutes later he came back and asked why, why won't you dance with me? I couldn't come up with much except I just don't like dancing. My sister insisted I give it a whirl. Triping and stumbling on each others feet we made it through one song. At the end of the night he had my number, and I had his smiled memorized in my head. We went to dinner twice with friends, and hung out a few times then he disappeared for a few weeks. He called his mom and had her call me to tell me he was deployed in training and had no access to a phone but wanted her to tell me he hadn't forgot about me. Months passed of just talking on the phone every few weeks, he got deployed, it was when he came back that he finally asked me out officially. We have a beautiful baby boy named Rylan, and we always discussed marriage but it was something we knew couldn't happen for years due to finances. James proposed to me on June 18th at his best friends wedding. I was shocked surprised and extremely excited. I am 110% myself with him and I don't feel like I can be with anyone else. Stretch marks, and bad hair days don't phase him. Bad gas, and grumpy days don't bother him. We have our days as do we all but one thing is for sure I love him and I know he loves me and together we will be James, Rylan, and myself. Our own little fairy tale!
