I got my suspicions when we were vacationing in Cape Breton in the beginning of July. Mike asked me a few questions about engagement rings like how much should it cost and what the best jewellery store is in my opinion. I was slightly surprised that he asked me, but there was nothing suspicious because it was in the context. Other little thing that made me suspicious was when I asked what he will give me for my upcoming birthday and he said that it is a secret. It was weird because most of the time we would just ask each other what we want for a gift. And other thing was that he said that we should go to Omega Park a week before or after my birthday. (We had our first date in Omega Park.) So for the next few weeks I had my suspicions, but also I thought that I am crazy and just imagining things.
So it was Saturday July 23 and we went to Omega Park. We had so much fun there, as we always do.
This time we rented golf cart for an hour and decided to take a ride to the farm instead of walking there, it was so worth it, we had lots of fun. We got to feed cutest little deer and other animals. On our way back to the golf cart rental booth we realized that we still had 15 minutes left so we decided to make another loop around the park and enjoy some breeze.
When we got up the hill, Mike stopped the cart. I saw another cute deer and wanted to feed her some apples. When I was about to get off the cart, Mike stopped me.......
and said that he has a question for me.
At that moment every little thing clicked together in my head....
As we know I said yes.
I was stunned/shocked for the rest of the evening.
He picked absolutely perfect ring, I could not ask for better. I never thought he would pick my ring on his own. But it was complete surprise and I canâ€™t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
Our wedding date:
Mike is in army, so it is not that easy to find the time when he know he won't be on duty. We thought of spring 2012, summer 2012 and december 2012. We liked an idea of getting married in a year, but we can be posted next summer, so I did not want to look for a house, move, get married and then I would not know on where to get married. Then december 2012 sounded alright, but we did not want to wait that long!!! And thats when i got an idea that we should just move forward our date to december 2011 We knew that not too many people will attend our wedding ( I was sad at first, then I saw bonuses in it). So we decided on December 21, 2011
Sandals Grande Riviera, Jamaica
I always dreamed of getting married in Sandals (not always, but for a few years for sure)
More to come!
