It all happened on Sunday, December 12th. After church, I was crying to Brad (literally crying, yes I know, pathetic) about not getting to open an early Christmas gift. He had promised me weeks before that I could open one gift before Christmas, since I paid for the extra on the new television we had purchased on cyber Monday. He had gotten to watch his new TV for weeks and I had gotten nothing! So, while I was in the middle of my sob-fest, Brad finally gave in to letting me open one, small present after dinner that night. I was pretty excited and my tears quickly ceased.
After dinner, we got a movie and a bottle of wine to relax with. Before starting the movie, Brad gave me my present...a brown paper gift bag with pink handles and pink tissue paper. I opened it up to find a small box wrapped up, with a bow on top. As I opened the box, Brad got down on one knee and took the box from my hand. He asked me to marry him, and I teared up instantly! I obviously said Yes! Best day of my life. I'm so excited to spend the rest of my life with my best friend and soul mate! He's the greatest guy God could have ever given me! I feel so lucky to have met Brad, and even luckier that he picked me! :) And that's our proposal story. I can't wait to start planning our wedding!
Here's my beautiful ring (the picture isn't the greatest because I took it with my phone)::
