    He proposed a month ago in Hawaii. We dated for 10.5 years (i know) and I was sure there was no way at this point he could possibly suprise me. I had a feeling it would happen while we were in Hawaii, everything was a surprise from the start. I wasn't allowed to know where we were going, where we were staying or what were were going to do, so I fiugured at some point on the trip it would happen. active, we planned to hike, surf, snorkle, etc. He tells me one night that we are going to go sky diving the next morning, somthing I had always wanted to do, but he wanted to make sure I was mentally prepared so he told me the night before. We show up at the place, supposidly one of the most beautiful drop zones in the world and we begin to sign papers. On each line I sign, right below it says "you may die" over and over and over again. So I keep signing, and I look at him and ask if we are really about to do this and he says yes. So we waited about 1 hour until it was our turn, get in the plane with 8 other tandum jumpers and as we climb higher and higher, he turns to me and asks if I am ready to take the plunge..I laugh and say "I don't think I have a choice at this point" then he get down on one knee and askes if I am ready to take the plunge with him? He had the ring on the plane and knelt down on a knee. Then we jumped out of the plane. It was amazing!! He definitly surprised me.

                    Oh wow, how thrilling! Would definitely make it easier to jump out of the plane with your adrenaline already pumping like that!!
