It was a beautiful sunny morning in Kansas City, Missouri and we were planning a pool party for my boyfriends band. He told me to show up at his house early so we could eat breakfast and go set up. I get there and the door is locked, like always. I am feeling flustered and call him because he is not opening up. He answers and tells me, “Oh, I forgot to tell you that Jakob (his best friend) came over this morning and is having a melt down. It would mean a lot if you came down and talked to him.” I of course say yes and start walking down. Back story to this “lake.” Christian and I have been dating since 2014. We have been through a lot and often go out to his neighborhood lake to watch the sunset or talk about our day. I walk up to our bench and there he is with flowers every where and smiling. I turn from annoyed to confused. He then bent down on one knee and told me how lucky he was and that he wanted to spend the rest of my life with me.
So much adrenaline was pumping through my body, that it all seemed like a dream. I am so incredibly blessed to have him in my life. What an amazing day. Now you might be wondering, why the heart engagement ring? Well, my last name is Hartgrove and I have always LOVED my last name. We are nontraditional people, we Christian will be taking MY last name. Christian and Amy Hartgrove. Has a nice ring to it ;)
