- Wedding: March 2014
Last night he proposed!
So the rundown of the story is that we had the day planned that we were going to go to Busch Gardens (we met at a theme park and love rollercoasters!), work on a project I had to take pictures for in Tampa and go to a surprise dinner.
Busch Gardens turned out to be amazing! We have been so many times before, but we just happened to be there for a lot of things we had never seen before. They did a “cheetah run” where they us a lure and play with the cheetah so that you can see how fast they can run. Amazing! I work with animals and have always loved them so, perfect! We saw a new show that was really cool, and we got to see the elephants play with toys and chow down on treats! The weather was amazing and it was by far the best Busch Gardens visit we’ve ever had.
The surprise dinner was Genghis Grill (mongolian barbecue). It’s a place we love, but is a bit of a drive just to go there from Orlando, and we had only ever been to one in TN when visiting family. It was totally delicious and low key.
Finally, on the way home he said he needed to stop at an exit to go to the bathroom. Now this exit is one he used to live off of and we used to spend a lot of time down there so we know it well. However, he kept on passing everywhere that he could go to the bathroom. I started to get irritated because it was getting late, and I had to get up really early. He saw that I was getting frustrated and said, “I’m going to take you somewhere.” He started driving back into a neighborhood until we came to a dock with a gazebo out on a lake overlooking the night cityscape. It was so pretty and romantic. We walked to the gazebo, and he said he loved me and wanted to be together forever got down on one knee and gave me the most beautiful ring (I did pick it, but it doesn’t make it less beautiful lol).
Sorry this is so long. Thank you guys so much for your stories and support!
Obligatory ring pics, sorry they are gargantuan!
