The Beginning of the Happiest Day of my Life

Monday, April 1, 2013

J proposed last week, March 26 ! I'm such a happy girl.

J, his brother, Em and her kids all came up on Monday. On Tuesday we had planned a picnic at my campus, but when we got there is was overcast, cold and starting to spit rain. So we ended up just walking around campus reminiscing.

We walked up to one of the fountains of campus and was taking pictures and J stopped me and asked me how much I loved him. I gave him a very funny look because of course I love him with all my heart, but at the time all that I could get out was "a lot". So he said he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me and asked if I wanted the same thing. By this point I kinda knew what was going on. He eventually gets down on one knee and pulls out a ring box with the beautiful ring that I loved so much.

I was so astonished. And happy and words can't even describe. But then Em said her camera card was full when it was happening so we had to do a rerun and John got down on one knee again and did it all over again. 

We are very excited. There was some other negativity surrounding the engagement, but right now I don't really want to focus on that.

J and I have talked about it and have set a tentative date of June 15, 2014.
