- Wedding: October 2013
It was completely not how I imagined getting engaged…It was EVEN BETTER!!
Today was my birthday. J was taking me out to dinner with all our friends and family. We were getting ready to leave and I was holding our daughter in my arms, and her diaper bag was on the floor in front of me. I asked J if he could please grab it while I was putting her in the car seat. So he knelt down on one knee, which I thought was weird but didn’t make the connection. And then he grabbed my hand.
At first I thought he was just kidding, because he likes to tease me and get a rise out of me about it (playfully of course, not being a jerk). So I honestly thought he was joking and I kind of rolled my eyes. But then he started talking. He said:
“Ashley, I was going to wait until dinner to do this, but I can’t hink of a more perfect place than in our home where we first met, with our daughter in your arms.” And then he pulled out the ring. And I started shaking and bawling. He continued:
“We have a lot of memories here, and I can’t wait to make even more. Will you marry me?”
I LOST IT!! I had to put the baby down because I thought I was going to drop her LOL. I couldn’t believe this was FINALLY happening!
Of course I said yes and he slipped the ring on my finger and I felt complete. We enjoyed an AMAZING hibatchi grill dinner with all our closest friends and family, and just celebrated the night away!
We already have the date set- October 26, 2013. Just about 13 months!! I am so blessed!!!
