- Wedding: June 2012
Well, everyone, the weekend is more or less over. We went to the zoo and he took me to the botanical gardens in the city we were in. He had me sit down and took a photo me then said I wasn’t smiling big enough. He said he bet he could make me smile more. He came to the bench and knelt in front of me. He wears cowboy boots and the tops of those have a lot of room in them. He pulled the ring box out. He’d been carrying it there all day, even at the zoo. We were already all dressed up for the nice restaurant. That is how he asked. My smile in the photo after he asked is a huge difference. We didn’t know at the time but a professional photographer that was there doing photos for prom caught photos of the entire thing. It also caught me totally off guard when he asked even though I thought he would. He actually threw me off enough to make me think it would happen Easter Sunday. I’m engaged!!!
