how they asked
I’m a hard person to surprise, but I’ve never been more surprised than when Jeff proposed! We’d been together over four years, and moved to a new city together earlier that year. There were a few opportunities leading up to the proposal that I thought would be “the day” but he knew I would be expecting it. He proposed during a trip to a friend’s beach house. While everyone was getting ready to go out, we went for a walk on the beach.
He was walking oddly far away from me, but before I could think too much about it he started to tell me that the last four years were the best and that he wanted to spend his life with me. Before I knew it he was on one knee. When we got back to the house, I frantically looked for my phone to call my parents, but I had lost it on the beach. We had a crew of people digging through sand to try and find it! Right when I gave up and decided we would just celebrate and share he news the next day, his foot kicked the phone on the walk back! It made a hilarious memory and the best day ever!
