- Wedding: March 2013 - Backyard
Okay, so I was just proposed to this last Tuesday. I had been dating my fiance for 4 years, we are high school sweethearts and are in college…I am at a community college right now and he is at college in San Diego where I will also be next Spring. We had always talked about getting married from the first month we were dating…..obviously we were just silly kids and it was all talk but it finally happened!
I was on a beach walk with my mom like I always go on after class on Tuesday, my boyfriend was home for his spring break which is a week before mine so he said he was going to go get his truck looked at because it was acting up and told me he may need a ride later, I said okay and decided to go on a beach trail walk with my mom. I tried calling my boyfriend before letting him know where I will be but he texted me back saying he was greasy from helping work on his car and that he would call me later….I said ok and my mom and I headed out for our afternoon beach walk. I was distracted talking to my mom and listening to my ipod when I looked up and I thought I say my boyfriend ( I have trouble seeing long distance and didn’t have my distance glasses), I did a double take thinking that the guy sitting up ahead the trail was kinda cute but I went back to talking to my mom and then I looked up again and was thinking ‘oh it is him, he knew I was on a beach walk and now he just needs a ride home’ I didn’t think anything of it until he brought my favorite flower gerber daisies out from behind his back….I looked around and I realized we were at the exact spot on the beach where I accidentally threw a rock at him 4 summers before when we met. He walked me over to a spot on the beach with a heart carved in the sand…he brought me to the center of it and got down on one knee and proposed with the most amazing ring I have ever seen!!!! with a picnic basket with my favorite candy…jelly beans, with champagne and strawberries, we sat and watched the sunset:)
Only some pictures on our blog of the proposal, more coming!!!:)
