So I graduated nursing school this past week. Nursing school has a pinning ceremony when you’re finished. Each student goes up and thanks people for getting them to where they are now. I told (fiance!) that I wanted him, my mom, and his daughter to pin me. When it came to be my turn, I thanked them, and they came over to pin me. As I was sitting back down, he grabbed the microphone, and told everyone in the audience that he had an important question to ask. I had no idea what was going on. A girl next to me said, “Oh my gosh, I think he’s going to ask you!”
He made his way over, dropped down on one knee, pulled the ring out of his pocket, and asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes, and he put the ring on my shaking hand! I tried not to look at it the rest of the ceremony, but goodness it was hard! Everyone said that I looked like I was in shock the rest of the time. I guess I kinda was. Everyone also kept asking if I knew that he was going to do it. Of course not! I had no idea!
It was pretty perfect though, because there was a photographer there, so we got pictures of the proposal, and his dad filmed it. I’m glad we have it all there on film, because it got a little blurry because it all seemed to happen so fast!
