Speaking of my fiance, it might be time to share with you how he proposed.
My fiance and I have been dating for 6 and a half years We went to high school together and met through our archery team. He was the team captain and I was a newbie who needed a lot of instruction. Fortunately, this dashing gentleman helped me every step of the way. Little did I know he had alterior motives!
Our first date was a trip to one of our favourite restaurants where we ironically wanted to order the exact same thing. He ended up ordering something different so we could share our meals. Then we made our way to the movie theatre where we saw Van Helsing. How romantic!
After six years of celebrating the wonderful times and supporting one another through the bad, the time had finally come. Of course, I was totally oblivious. We had said how much we wanted to visit a big farmer's market a few hours away, but could never find the time to go. Finally, we planned a spontaneous trip with one night's stay in a campground near the market.
We visited the market, one of our favourite activities, and picked up a few things for our picnic lunch. We headed to a gorgeous conservation area and hiking trail where we would eat lunch. My fiance kept telling me he had something special for dessert, but I didn't know what it was. When we finished eating, he pulled out a special container and told me it was dessert. Lo and behold, there was a ring in that container on top of one of my favourite foods: cheesecake! I did not see it coming!
I must have said yes a thousand times while trying to hold back tears. It wasn't until I got my mom and dad on the phone until I completely broke into tears. Our families were so happy for us!
That was the happiest moment of my life, I'm sure only to be topped by our actual wedding day. Words can't express how much I love him and how grateful I am for his kind presence in my life. We make a pretty awesome pair!
