We went to Myrtle beach for our annual family vacation. Derek had just gotten back from playing golf, and I just got done shopping, he had said there were plans for all of his family and us to take pictures on the beach. So we proceeded to the beach with his sister and parents. After walking a little on the sand, Derek began to say how much he loved me and how right we were together, and I agreed as I looked at the waves. He then turned to me and dropped to one knee, and pulled out this gorgeous ring and asked one of the most important questions of my life… “Will you marry me, Ashley”. I kneeled down with tears, and said yes! My sister was on facetime and weeping through the phone. We are set to get married May 12th, 2016 in Myrtle Beach.
