10 years together, FINALLY engaged!!

Recommended Posts


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 tête-à-tête 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

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
