how they asked
I had been taking summer classes at Cal Poly to complete my masters and this was my final Summer I had to be away to finish the final two classes. All of our friends and my sister had been getting engaged, but he told me to not be expecting an engagement any time soon (don’t they all). So I was not expecting to be swept off my feet this Summer. Brad and I are both Agriculture instructors, he at a college, and I at the high school level.
In the middle of my masters classes he would be joining me in San Luis for the yearly CA Ag teachers conference, but I wasn’t expecting him for another day when he showed up at the mission where I was near by having lunch with a friend. Brad had planned with my friend Allie to have her take me to get my nails done and then to have lunch near the mission.
We were walking by the mission after lunch when I saw him by the fountain. He grabbed my hands in his shaking hands, got down on one knee, and told me he would love me forever. Then he proposed with the ring of my dreams. He had been planning the day for months! Immediately following the proposal he had a surprise party steps away at a restaurant with most of our family and friends in attendance waiting to congratulate us!
It’s been a week and I think I just stopped crying those sweet happy tears ?
