So I’ve posted here a couple of times about my wait for the proposal, but it finally happened!!!!!
Yesterday was my birthday, and we had planned a short trip to Key Largo for the day. We left early in the morning and checked in early to the Hilton Resort. We then headed down to the beach bar for a drink of course (Drinking before noon doesn’t make you an alcoholic on your birthday!! ;-)). As we were sipping our drinks we heard an announcement for a reduced price for parasailing, and we figured why not? Neither of had ever gone, and it was such a quiet day. It was so unexpected and fun. When we got back we headed to the pool bar for some lunch, and on the way he told me had a surprise for later. After lunch we fixed ourselves up and left the hotel and headed to a boat dock. We were going on a sunset cruise on a 55 foot sailboat! There was supposed to be another couple on the cruise, but they never showed so it was just us and the captain. We sailed out for about an hour and then we turned around and started sailing back. The sun was just beginning to set, and John asked me if I wanted to go sit at the very front of the boat, of course I did! As we were sitting there, the captain asked if wanted champagne to toast at the sunset which was so nice (in our red solo cups lol). As we were drinking the champagne watching the sun set over the water, John asks me, “Would you be really mad if we didn’t go ring shopping on Monday?” which was, what I thought, our original plan. I was just thinking in my head, oh great, more waiting…. So I asked him why, thinking it had to do with work, and he said, “Well you know I love you, right? And that I want to spend the rest of my life with you, right?” Yeah, yeah… He reached in his pocket and pulled out a little wooden box, and asked me to marry him with the exact ring that I dreamed of!!!!!
Of course I said yes and cried. But here it is!!!! 1.06 ct asscher in a halo setting. I know the picture is terrible, it was taken at sunset on a boat right before my phone died. I’m sure there will be plenty more to come!!
This was the best birthday I could have ever dreamed of, and I couldn’t be happier to know that we will be spending the rest of our lives together… So Happy!!!!
