So it's official - we're engaged (*high fives all around)
There are moments in life you wait for, wonder about and dream of. They mark milestones, new beginnings and if you're lucky the actual moment itself is far better than anything you'd ever imagined. It's hard to believe that after close to 8 years together, a proposal could take me by surprise, the kind of surprise that brought tears or if we're being honest here, sobs - pure, joy-filled, embarrassing, uncontrolled sobs of happiness that moved me beyond belief.
During what was supposed to be his birthday weekend, while we were watching a beautiful sunset over the ocean in one of our favourite places, the boy finally popped the question. It was the real deal. He got down on one knee and began to say some beautiful words before I had that 'holy shit is this really happening' moment. I looked at him, I said YES!, I saw the ring - all before the tears began. Then it became a blur. One tearful, love filled moment I'll remember for the rest of my life.
