    My fiance (now.. hehe) and I have been dating for 4 years. Everysingle one of our friends got engaged, and most of them married.. before we were engaged. This did bother me since we were dating the longest... but oh well. save the best for last! haha
    A few years ago we planned on going to Jamaica and the plans fell through because of an illness in the family. We ended up just putting it on hold til the timing was a little better
    In Feb of this year we decided to go! Booked the trip and took off on March 12 2010! it was the BEST vacation of my life!
    The day after we got there (march 13th:)) We spent most of the morning laying on the beach and splashing around in the ocean!
    Michael (my fiance) went up to the hotel room a few times to get more sunscreen and drinks. When we decided to go get some lunch we headed up to the room to get showered and dressed.
    I opened the door and didnt notice the "will you marry me" written in flower petals on the bed! haha I just kept talking and talking and i noticed he wass acting kind of strange so i asked him what was wrong and turned around at the same time! I saw the petals and started freaking out! it was the BEST feeling in the world! I cried, laughed, smiled, and screamed all at the same time!! I forgot to say yes. The poor guy was on his knee for what seemed like an hour before i managed to say YES! the ring is beautiful and i was totally shocked! I didnt think it was coming since we spent so much on the vacation, just bought a house, and a new car... Plus i check his account to balance check books lol! I am very excited to say the least to take the next step in our long life together!

        Jessica, congratulations! I feel like we were kind of in the same boat. Dated for a long time and everyone else met someone and got engaged during that time. But I really think it was worth the wait! You have a great engagement story! I love that you didn't notice at first. He obviously put a lot of effort into that.

        Welcome to the forum and have fun planning!
