It was a Sunday just like any other, I woke up got ready and went to church. After the service I visited with friends when one of my friends handed me a letter. At first I was confused, I didn’t understand why he had this random letter for me, hesitantly I opened it and began reading. It was from my boyfriend Ryan who was supposed to be golfing at the time. The letter said that he was sending me on an adventure for our year and a half anniversary. I’m always down for an adventure so I was quite excited to get started. The first clue led me to the base of a hike that Ryan and I had spent hours at talking and getting to know each other before we started dating. When I pulled up his mom, dad and sister were waiting there for me to arrive. It was at that moment that I realized what was happening. After sharing some tears and lots of hugs I read the letter explaining the love that Ryan has for, then i opened the next clue and was on my way. I arrived at the second spot where I found my brother and sister. This spot was at the Morro Bay rock in my hometown. This is where Ryan asked me to be his girlfriend. Anxiously, I grabbed the letter from them and began reading. It was in that letter that Ryan mentioned a ring…I lost it. I couldn’t believe it was happening and I couldn’t be more excited. The next clue led me to the parking lot of my parents former restaurant. To some, it may just seem like a parking lot, but this spot was so significant in our relationship. This is where one of the biggest disagreements in our relationship was resolved and where we told each other that we loved each other for the first time. When I pulled up I saw my parents waiting for me. My dad with tears in his eyes and my mom with arms wide open. We hugged and reminisced and they handed me the final letter. By this time I was so ready to just find Ryan. The last clue led me to wear we celebrated our one year anniversary. A spot that would change our lives forever. When I got to Montana de Oro I had to walk along the ocean line thinking about the incredible day that I’ve had, and remembering all of the fun memories we have shared in our relationship. When I finally arrived at the small, romantic beach I finally saw the love of my life. The walk towards him felt like a lifetime, no matter how fast I walked I felt as though I wasn’t making any progress! When I did finally make it to him I hugged him and couldn’t let go. He told me how much he loved me, how I’ve changed his life and how he couldn’t imagine a life without me in it. Seconds later he was on one knee, opening a little black box with a gorgeous diamond ring inside and asking me to be his wife. And of course, I said yes.
I love with with man with everything that I am, and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life falling more in love with him.
