- Wedding: July 2019
We went away this weekend for our anniversary to a local hotel a few cities over. I had developed a cold earlier in the week and by Saturday afternoon I was feeling pretty terrible but trying to hide it and not spoil the day. We did some shopping together and then went back to our room. I asked if we could take a nap before dinner and he agreed. Only, I napped alone and he stayed awake and watched me lol. I think he was too excited to sleep, but he knew I was sick so he wanted me to rest.
Woke up and got ready for dinner. We went to this intimate little wine bar for dinner, it was beautiful. Ordered a bottle of wine and food. He looked SOO handsome. I took a pic of him because I wanted an image of that moment. He asked if he could take a pic of me and did, and then I asked to see it. As I was evaluating the pic and not paying attention (LOL), he came over and got down on one knee. Me still oblivious he says “hey, can you put that (his phone) down for a minute)” and I look up to see him down on one knee.
He talked about how much he loves me. How the last year together has been the best year of his life and how he knows we will have a great life together. I dont remember all the specifics, but it was all very sweet and perfect. I gave him a big kiss and hug and said yes and then he put the ring on my finger. We were in a secluded spot in the restaurant so it was just me and him in that moment <3
Told his parents the next day when we picked up the kids and have started sharing the news with friends and family. I am so excited to spend my life with him! He is my favorite person in the world <3
