the biggest surprise happened on saturday the 21st.... the man i love got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. i couldn't be any happier than spending the rest of my life with my best friend by my side. he is everything i have looked for in a husband and i feel like the luckiest girl to have found him- and not to brag, he is quite the catch! the Lord truly had direction in us meeting and i feel incredibly blessed.
i'll have to write more about how we met and our love story, but for now, i'll get to the juicy details of the proposal!
before that saturday, my parents had told me that my dad got 4 free tickets from work for a fancy dinner and show in Seattle. my two sisters went to seattle to hang out with friends, so we got ready and headed downtown. we met up with my sisters at kerry park on queen anne hill (its the spot where they take the gorgeous postcard photos of the seattle skyline). down the street is Parson's garden where we stopped to kill some time and walk around before the show. i got out of the car and my sister had told me how gorgeous the flowers were for me to take photos of. so that's what occupied my mind! i was excited for the show, little did i know that kevin was waiting for me a few yards away.
i walked through the path and saw rose petals and a bouquet of flowers on a bench. the first thought that crossed my mind was "awh cute, is someone taking wedding photos?!" as i rounded the corner, i saw KEVIN standing there, dressed nice, holding flowers and smiling at me. (a couple of my friends were in the bushes recording- i saw anna but didn't even think anything of it!) then it hit me- OH MY GOSH HE'S GOING TO PROPOSE!! i started to get a little emotional, but the shock of seeing him IN SEATTLE, standing in front of me halted those tears. i couldn't believe he was there! i looked in his nervous eyes as he knelt down to ask me to be his wife and... well obviously, i said YES :)
p.s. here's a video my friend natalie took, you can't hear anything we say, but you get the gist of it!
