Since it’s Valentine’s Day, I’ve decided to share our love story!
Brian and I had been dating for about 2 1/2 years and knew we were going to get married so I was kind of pushing him about when we would get engaged. Needless to say, I didn’t realize that he was waiting to propose because he was having my ring specially made for me. To ease my questions, Brian told me that we would get engaged before school got out in early May. Well that just made me very suspicious of every date we went on from there on. Brian tricked me into thinking that he had a large deal come through and I asked if we could go out to celebrate like we normally do when he closes a deal at work. He agreed and we went out to our favorite restaurant at the time, Outback Steakhouse. Even though it was my idea to go out to eat, I was still looking at his pockets to see if there was a ring box that evening. After dinner Brian told me that he was going to hang out with his friend Todd much to my dismay. He told me that he only had about 30 more minutes then he would need to take me back to the dorms. Since we had a limited time I suggested we go to our spot (a cute gazebo in a local neighborhood). Once there we sat and talked about the future and living in a cute neighborhood like that one some day. Then he told me he loved me and I said I loved him too. He asked me to prove it to him by wearing this ring for the rest of my life. I was so excited that my chest broke out in red spots! My sister appeared from around the corner to take pictures of us and then we went to a surprise party where all our friends were waiting. It was an unforgettable day!
Pop in a movie and relax on the couch together. I’m not a huge fan of the beach.
We would both love to go back to Costa Rica where we honeymooned someday. It was gorgeous and we had so much fun ziplining, riding horses, swimming, and relaxing.
Communication is key to keeping any relationship strong! And it is especially crucial for newlyweds.
