Remember a few posts back when I talked about wanting to have the best summer ever? Well, it happened. It actually happened. How? My boyfriend and I took a weekend getaway on the 19th and 20th. The plan was to go to Upper Canada Village on the Saturday, grab dinner, and then go on to Fort Henry on Sunday. We did all of those things....but that wasn't all that happened.
Yes, I am officially engaged to my amazing boyfriend - and I couldn't be happier about it. The proposal came as a complete shock to me. I mean, we had talked about getting married and our future....I just didn't expect it to happen during our weekend away. It was a total surprise but by far the best moment of my entire life. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him.
How did it happen? We had just left Upper Canada Village and he took me over to this beautiful fountain on the grounds. We snapped a couple of pictures and were being normal when....bam! He got down on one knee and popped the question. I have no clue what I said or did (other than cry). It is all such a blur in my mind. After saying yes, we sat on a rock in front of the fountain and talked while I tried to process everything that had just happened.
Needless to say, I am very happy and excited. I feel so blessed. I've found the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. I have family and friends who love and support us. Life is pretty great.
We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love.
