    img2366ey.jpg   On our 10 year anniversary, I had come home from a long day at work and opened the door to a bouquet of red roses.  David suggested a walk around a park to de-stress.  Thinking that it would be a local park, I left my ID and cell phone at home.  However, he did remind me to bring my camera knowing that I love to experiment with photography on our walks.  It was when we were pulling onto the highway before I realized we maybe going a fair distance. David assured me that we were going to stop at a few different parks to change up the pace.  I thought it was a very sweet gesture for our anniversary.  David drove us into our childhood town and we pulled up to a very familiar field. Way back when, we had our own secret place that overlooked the beaches.  I loved it there.  It reminded me of all our stolen moments when we were so young. At first I did not recognize the area, but soon the familiar view had me rushing back to old memories. Well, I went completely snap happy with my camera and its INSANE 80x zoom (pictures below leading up to seconds before the proposal).  We did some people watching and even spotted a wild fox! Then, David pointed out a couple walking by the beach.  I looked through my lens and zoomed.  I chuckled.  "Honey, that's not a couple,"  David coughed but I was still looking through my camera display. " those are two guys walking with their arms crossed. Haha."   preproposal.jpg   "Uh, well I wonder if that guy is going to ask the other guy the same question I'm going to ask you..." "What?" I turned around and David was already on one knee, the ring in an open box in his hands. He was blushing and looked so nervous. Honestly, it was all a blur.  My jaw dropped and I put a hand over my mouth.  I was in so much shock. He asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.   I managed to let out a "yes" and as he slipped the ring onto my finger, it quickly became a "yes! yes! Yes! YES!" The breeze was soft, the view was gorgeous, and we just stood there, literally tªte- -tªte listening to the sound of the beach.   img2411ay.jpg   ~~ ------------------------------------------ ~~ Shortly thereafter, as we emerged from Our Secret Place, David stopped a passing bicyclist and asked him to take our photo.  The bicyclist congratulated us and took our first photo as a newly engaged couple!  He also offered us our first words of advice.  "Y'should start lookin' into baby seats for that Mustang, eh?" =) Before heading home, we stopped by our old high school for a photo of where we started.  10 years ago, this was where the journey began.  On the drive home, I was kicking myself for not bringing my cell phone to call everybody. I was DYING with anticipation. But it was a lovely ride home anyway because we held hands all the way there~     img2370bu.jpg
