It happened Friday night and I’m still on cloud nine.
We went out to dinner and planned to go hiking at night. Well it was pouring rain outside when we left the restaurant. We figured we would go ahead and head out to the trail we wanted to hike at since it was a little bit of a drive, hoping the rain would stop. It was still pouring as we got closer to the trail, next thing I know he pulls into this other park which has a small lake and gazebo. He suggested we hang out under that. We went running through the rain to the gazebo. I had my back turned to him watching the lighting and we were talking about our hiking being canceled. He says “Well it will make for a great story” I said “Huh?” and turned around to him on one knee. It was blur after that I remember freaking out.
He had planned to do it on our hike but he had to think on his feet for an alternative. I was perfect with the rain and lighting.
The waiting and wondering was all worth it. There is this great feeling when I look at my ring, it’s like getting a sneak preview to the next chapter in your life.
