how they asked
It was a normal day at work on Friday, ready for the weekend and around lunchtime I get a beautiful edible arrangement delivery from Jason with the sweetest note ever that “ I had to pack right when I get home cause we’re going on a little weekend getaway”. You can only imagine what was racing through my mind at the time cause this was out of the ordinary for him. So I’m dying to get off work, I actually got to leave half an hour early, raced home and packed. I got packed in 10 minutes(that never happens). We start driving and I’m trying to figure out where we are going, of course, he wouldn’t tell me but we end up at the Gaylord palm resort. What a beautiful place! He said we’re staying here all weekend, of course, I was excited cause this place was amazing. We go out to dinner at the resort that night and he tells me at dinner we have to get up at 5 AM tomorrow, my face was like ?? why?? Of course, he would not tell me.
So the following morning we get up at 5, get dressed and we head down to the hotel lobby and someone from a hot air balloon company is there to pick us up. Now I have mentioned how cool it would be to ride a hot air balloon years ago. So I was excited! He got us a private balloon and we go up in the air and it was a beautiful morning, as I am staring off into the beautiful sky, I feel a tap on the shoulder. I turn around and the love of my life is on his knees saying the sweetest things ever and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said YES! If this couldn’t get any better, while we’re landing I see my best friends waiting for us on the ground. I was bawling my eyes out. We did a champagne toast and a few minutes later my sister shows up! She flew in from New York to be here for this special moment. It was the most beautiful morning of my entire life and now I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend and love.
