|The Man. The Ring. The Girl.|
Leading up to RUSH was a crazy whirlwind. I had gone to work that day, come home to make a dinner...for some reason decided to try a new recipe (pizza casserole, and yes it was good!)...and the dinner had taken longer than expected...so I show up to RUSH, a bit late with casserole in hand and then yes I proceed to eat it before potentials (aka: girls that might join) arrived. To my surprise, my BiG shows up and we start discussing when Kevin and I would be getting engaged, then married, etc...knowing good and well the answer to the first. Didn't shake me though, Kevin and I had talked wedding so much, it wasn't weird for me to talk about even without being engaged.
|Kristina had me pretend to walk down THE aisle, tricky girl!|
As the doors to the courtyard opened, I spied a table set up with flowers and candles. The flowers, were the kind we talked about having at the wedding...my heart leapt and I thought, this is it! He guided me over the to the table, at which point I could see the candles in the shape of a heart, and sat me down (Side note: in the beginning of our relationship, we ate lunch in this courtyard every week). Then He handed me a square note (Side note: on every monthiversary I receive a square note from Kevin, on the front is a note about the present, on the back is our continual love story). I read the front which was a sweet note about celebrating our 22 monthiversary, and then went to turn to the back, Kevin quickly scrambled to take the note away from me and muttered something along the lines of, there's not a back this time.*
video of the whole thing!!
*Turns out there was a back to the card...it was about how and when he bought the ring and the many plans and arrangements he made to put together this special night for us.
In Phi Lamb, you are supposed to keep your engagement secret until the next chapter and then we have a special candle service. Sweet man, he thought he planned it timely enough so we could manage that but chapter was off that week and besides that excited friends has already posted about it on facebook. No big deal. Some people were still surprised!

- How do I follow that up with pearls of wisdom?
- Be willing to let your man propose to you as he chooses, I never saw this coming but it was the sweetest way to do it!
