how they asked: A year ago today I woke up super sick and having no idea that it was going to end being one of the best days of my life. Joel and I were separated all summer last year. So a year ago I went to work not feeling good at all and ended up having to leave early because I was running a fever. I went to the store to get some soup and crackers then I was going home to sleep off this cold. On my way home I was thinking how much I would love if Joel was around because I just needed to snuggle.
When I walked in my house Joel was sitting at the kitchen table dressed in a suit with a beautiful bouquet of roses and lily. The first words out of his mouth was “You know what they say, in sickness or in health.” At that point I though I was so sick that I was dreaming this the whole time. Then he started reading this amazing letter that he wrote for me.
My favorite sentence in this letter was “As the days have gone on in this relationship I am believing more and more that God created me with only half of a heart and all my life I have been in search for you because your heart fully completes mine.” At the end of the letter, he was down on one knee and asked if I would marry him. Of course, I said YES!!!!
