I know that I’ve already posted this on my Instagram but I just wanted to take a minute to share with you my exciting news from the weekend and also how it all went down.
My boyfriend is preparing to leave for China on Wednesday with his masters program, so we had planned on spending a lot of time together this past weekend. Around the middle of the week he told me that he would not be able to come down until Saturday evening so we wouldn’t have a lot of time together before he left, and I wasn’t exactly happy about it. So Saturday morning rolls around and I went up to my family cabin to see my uncle and cousin since they were in town and I wasn’t sure how long it had been since I had actually seen him. I left a little later than I had planned and I was worried that I would be later than Eric when I got home and that he’d be stuck waiting for me. Once I pulled up I noticed a note taped to my door. Not so strange, I figured it had to do with the mail or something like that. Oh boy how I was wrong.
The note was the first clue to a scavenger hunt that lead me all over town to various places that Eric and I had been on our first date. The last stop was the church where my mom and dad got married. I was pretty emotional when I got there because I had a pretty good feeling that I knew what was coming. I entered the grounds and there he was, with rose petals and candles. After he said some things, that I honestly don’t even remember, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was an absolute mess but somehow managed to say yes. He got my whole family in on it and also my best friend. My sister, her boyfriend, and my best friend were all there taking pictures and they had also helped him set up. It was absolutely perfect in every way.
I know that this isn’t fashion related at all (though I will tell you where all of our clothes came from haha), but I just wanted to share with all of you. Thank you for being the best readers, it’s exciting being able to share this with all of you. You have to forgive that some of these pictures aren’t the best (some have horrible lighting), but I’m just happy we got some photos of the proposal.
