- Wedding: November 2011
On 11-5-10, it was my 24th birthday. Mr M had been asking me for months and months what I wanted for my birthday. Honestly, I didn’t want anything so I said to just be with him was all I wanted.
So.. the morning began.. We ate breakfast at home, and the day was a “surprise…” I wasn’t allowed to know what we were doing. So we’re driving and he finally says that the only thing he can tell me is that we’re going to St Augustine! I absolutely LOVE St Augustine, so I was super excited! As we’re driving, which is a few hours after eating breakfast, I started to get sooo hungry, so we stopped at Mc D’s (lol) and I had a kids meal 😛 ..
Finally, we get to St Augustine.. We visited The Fort and the surrounding areas.. He was acting weird and when I would hug him he would pull away on his left side and he kept looking at his watch. Very odd of him, because Mr M will probably be late to his own funeral 😉 ..
So as we’re leaving a small store, he says I must keep my eyes closed until we get to where we’re going.. Sure babe, I’ll do that (shaking head) 😉 .. We finally arrive at a marina. As we’re walking into an office, he tells me he chartered a sailboat, so it was the captain, and he and I!
After about an hour of sailing, I knew something was up, but I wasn’t sure.. He continued to look at his watch the ENTIRE time.. We go up to the front of the boat a few times, but I was focosed on it being freeeezing out! (I had to borrow the captain’s jacket, because I wasn’t prepared to be on a sailboat)
As we’re sailing into the sunset, he asks me to follow him up to the front of the boat. As we’re sitting there, he moved away from me, got down on one knee and confessed his love for me, and asked me to marry him!!!!!! He had been hiding the ring in his pocket of his shirt the entire day, thats why he kept pulling away from his left side when we would hug in the day!! 😛 … The captain was in on it, so at the moment he took a picture with my camera!!!! Of course I said yes!!!!
