On December 22, also Bobby’s Birthday, I got engaged!
It was such an amazing day and even over two months later, I still get emotional thinking about it .
I took the day off work so Bobby and I could spend the day together and go ice skating downtown for his birthday. We got there pretty early, and I rented my skates. He laced me up and then patiently pulled me around the rink a few times. I am an awful skater, and am actually kind of afraid of it. It was great weather, and we were having fun.
I made a comment about wanting to stop to take a picture, and he casually said “lets go up there to take the picture,” referring to a spot about 20 feet ahead. When we got there, he said I have something better than a picture and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
I started crying immediately and could not stop shaking (which he still finds hilarious).
Of course I said yes!! (right after I said… “but its your birthday “) && the ring is GORGEOUS and exactly what I always described to him.
The reason we had to go 20 feet further was because he had a friend waiting to photograph the whole thing. I was so excited!
It was the best day, and I wish I could re-live it every day. I am so unbelievably excited to marry the man of my dreams.
