George and I had been together for a little over three years when we decided to go on a cruise together. We went on a cruise with my family the year before and loved the time you spend together and how you’re really able to spend some time away from the world.
George and I were taking picture before a fancy dinner we had made reservations for on the formal night of the cruise. George had set up his tripod on a raised table in the room so he could take a picture of us on the balcony with the water behind us.
At one point George had said, “Hold on, I want to change the lens on the camera.” I waited for him to get the lens out of his camera bag but the next thing I knew, he had a ring box in his hand. I felt my knees start to get a little weak and my heart starting beating faster.
George grabbed my hand and told me how much he loved me and wanted to spend his life with me. Then he got down on one knee and asked me the question I had been waiting to hear for so long.
