- Wedding: October 2015
Going on day 3 of being a fiancé! And here is how it happened: while on vacation visiting friends my SO’s bff mentioned this coconut video that was going viral that we just had to see.. And he said he’d send it to my SO.. Fast forward to our first night back at home : we decided to go for a drive through the mountains to unwind (something we do ALL the time) while we were out there we decided to stop at our favorite spot, the same place we went on our first date to look at the stars.. As we were getting out of the car my FIANCÉ said “Oh! Ryan sent me that coconut video! It’s on my computer- you should watch it real quick!” then he set up his computer on the back of the car so I could watch it.. It was pretty cool.. It started with this man in India scaling a tree with his hands and feet and when he got to the top he pulled off a coconut and dropped it to the floor. Then the camera guy focused in on the coconut and on it was written “will you marry me, kolbi?” I read it like 8x and still had no idea what was happening! finally I turned around to see where SO went and found him all teary eyed down on one knee with a ring box in his hands. I was so surprised! And thrilled. And had all of the mushy feelings. I sprang into his arms and we hugged for a solid 5 minutes before he finally said “well.. what do you say? Will you be my wife?” it was perfectly magical! And 100% unexpected!
We already ordered his ring and booked a chapel! We will most likely elope, just the two of us before the end did the month and then we’re going to have a small ceremony with just our immediate family on Feb 29, 2016! Leap day!
