So, my ward is well known for producing married couples. Last week alone there were 6 proposals last week.
I didn’t think I’d be joining those ranks for at least another month.
But, I am now!
Justin, my fiancee–how cool, he is my fiancee now–took me on a picnic. The weather was nice this whole week, so we decided to celebrate with a picnic. But, he had a cool idea in mind–why not watch a movie on his laptop at the same time? So, he borrowed a digital copy of Star Dust.
We go to a roundabout that had a secret rock-bed area with an outlet. We laid down some blankets and laid out our food. Stardust played as we enjoyed our hoagies, strawberries, chips, and lemonade.
About 3/4 of the way through, I had a thought–wouldn’t it be cool if he proposed tonight. However, I knew he wasn’t because he said he wasn’t going to for a while.
Then, near the end of the movie, when Tristan and Evaine were pronouncing their love to each other, Justin’s face appears on the laptop. He had hijacked the movie to tell me how much he loved me. Then, he got on his knees and pulled out a ring and proposed!
Totally taken for surprise!
Of course I said YES!
So, now, it’s facebook-official. I’m getting married to the love of my life!!!!
This is the best! It’s the beginning of a wonderful life!
