How He Proposed

My friends and I had a big reunion tailgate planned for the Auburn vs. Georgia game this year. All the girls took a group picture, and Bobby came up to me asking to take a picture of just the two of us. He handed me a tumbler and said, “Look what Geoff's mom made for us.” It said “Will You Marry Me” on it, and when I looked up, he was on one knee.  I said yes, and all my friends and family cheered.
