Texas A&M Engagement Session
This couple shares a love they define as “simple.” They desire to share a love that is natural, easy and a constant reminder to cherish even the simplest of moments together. From swinging together on an old tree swing to their Texas A&M Aggie pride, Ashley and Brent know how to live a life full of laughter, love and joy.
From Ashley, “I always tell Brent “Loving You is Simple”. There is a natural, calming, loving, and sometimes humorous way Brent brings me back to the simple things in life.”
Near my parents’ house is a park and walking path that I just love. It is a special place to me. On the way to meet our families for dinner one evening, he was persistent that we stop and see “this park” I had always talked about.
We stopped and I showed him the walking trail but was caught off guard when he handed me a journal. As part of the proposal he started one on January 1 for our new journey together… I stood there reading through each page and on January 5 it ended with, “Now, I have a very important question.” When I looked up, he was down on one knee. I said “YES!”
On one of our first dates, Brent took me to an elementary school and walked me around to a few spots as he shared memories he had from playing on the playground. It was the elementary school he had gone to and they still had the original swing set, so we spent the evening swinging and getting to know one another.
After our engagement, I always told Brent I would love to have a house one day with a big enough tree for a large wood tree swing. A swing reminds us to slow down and enjoy those simple moments. I love life’s simple moments because they are the memories that make it from generation to generation.
Ashley and Brent’s pictures speak of their never-ending love for one another and the place they call home, Texas.
