Last year...I was with my family and Jason in New Smyrna Beach. We were by the pool all day. My normally quiet Uncle shared a sweet story about the time he proposed to my Aunt. We ran back to our hotel room to shower for my "cousin's birthday dinner"
While we're getting ready, Jason says "Wow. Babe. Come out here and look at this!" I walk out to our balcony and he's down on one knee with rose petals and candles everywhere.
He said the most beautiful things to me, which I was too busy crying to hear him.
Last year...I said YES!
(my hand would not stop shaking)
As soon as I pulled myself together, I called/texted all of my friends and family members. As soon as I sent the text to my Best Friend who was in Jacksonville, I heard the door of the hotel open and she walked in
Tears started flowing again. I put my makeup back on and headed out to my Cousin's birthday dinner. Only when we got there, it was my friends and family. Jason had surprised me with a celebration dinner.
1. Us infront of the banner they made 2. He talked my oldest friend,Wendy, into flying in from San Francisco 3. Some of the most important people in my life. 4. Walking into the surprise dinner 5. With my MOH 6. Sparklers
After dinner, we met a few more friends out to Celebrate.
This year, we headed back to my home away from home. We decided to swing in to the Garlic to re-celebrate how far we've come.
and, in true fashion we headed down to our favorite bar for a little celebratory shot.
Needless to say, this past year has been amazing. I'm so grateful for how everything has come along and I'm BEYOND ready to marry my Best Friend!
