I love our proposal story and I wanted to share it with everyone!
This past Friday ended like a typical night would. I went to bed setting my alarm for work the next day. Except that wasn’t what happened… I was woken up by my dad yelling good morning and for me to wake up. What?! No. It wasn’t even time for me to wake up! Anyone who knows me knows I love my beauty sleep. My dad handed me a card and continued to tell me to wake up.
At this point I wasn’t suspecting anything because I kept complaining to John that he worked all week and hadn’t spent much time with me. Little did I know…
So my mom and I got ready and went to the nail salon. I picked out one of my favorite fall colors and enjoyed every minute spent with my mom. Next thing I know, I look up and see his sister-in-law with a camera. I think the look on my face showed how shocked I was to see her! She then handed me the second card from John and we proceeded to the next stop! I pretty much guessed after reading this where we were headed.
At this point I knew something was up. I work all the time and never like calling out. So I started to wonder if this was really happening. The entire drive to our next stop I’m sitting there excited and probably quiet (unusual for me) because I’m trying to piece this all together.
But here we are, at my Nana and Pop’s house! They gave me the third card and Nana was now along for the ride!
So, the next stop I immediately knew where we were headed. I couldn’t figure out why though. I started to get worried because John knows I hate watching a movie unless it’s something really good. So I had no clue why we would make a stop at the movies!
She shared scripture with me and then told me details about what the night holds.
And we were off! I had no clue where… but I was excited!! We arrived at John’s house and my dad said he needed to go inside with me to talk to John for a second. I didn’t really think much of it until I started walking up the sidewalk. Then I knew something was about to happen… like soon!
So, I walked to the end and began to look at all of the pictures of us from different stages in our relationship. John then meets me at the end and asks the big question!
