I have wonderful news, friends!!!
On Tuesday morning J proposed atop a mountain!
He and I had discussed getting engaged and I knew that he was going to do it but I didn’t know when or where. I actually had no idea if it would be within the next few days or the next year. I actually really hated not having any say in when the actual question would be popped. However, I have grown up surrounded by romantic movies, etc. and I really did want the big proposal.
So when J asked if I wanted it to be a surprise, I said yes.
It turns out, he had been planning the proposal for a few months! He asked my mom and step-dad for their blessing in July – apparently she started crying before he even got through the door.
We went on that sunrise hike I mentioned in my MIMM post – the same hike that we took almost a year ago on our 3rd date. (the same date as our first kiss when I had to ask him to kiss me as we said good bye!)
When we got to the top and we ascended above the clouds he set up the camera to take a picture (and secretly put it to record), got on one knee and pulled out a ring (which was perfect, by the way – simple, symbolic, truly lovely).
I’m proud to say, I only cried a little.
I am so, so blessed to be engaged to my best friend, my partner in crime, my sounding board, my rock.
I am, the luckiest.
