Shelbie and Josh
how they asked
I had been wondering for months when Josh would ask. We’ve been together for four years, and had talked dozens of times about marriage! But he still hadn’t asked me. We planned a family weekend in my hometown of Hot Springs, which I was very excited for! On Saturday we went out for a ride on our boat and basically did all of my favorite things. When we got home, Josh told the whole family that he and my dad had planned a dinner at a place downtown, that it was a very nice Restaurant and we needed to dress nice! My sister-in-law wanted to help me get ready, which was a little weird. We did each other’s hair and make-up and at 6 we went to dinner. Josh was acting a little funny! But I didn’t think about it too much. We sat at our reserved table and I noticed their was an extra chair, which was odd.
All of a sudden my brother turned me and pointed behind me, I turned to see my mom walking up to our table! My mother and father were divorced and she hasn’t come with us on the family trip! Why was she here?? I stood up and went to hug her; She kissed my cheek and told me she loved me. Her behavior was scaring me almost. I heard Josh say “Hey Shelbie?” I turned to see what he needed. There he was on one knee with a ringbox holding the exact ring I picked out months ago!! It was so beautiful and I of course started crying!
He was so nervous, but he asked ever so proudly “Will you marry me?”. My tears made it hard to talk so I nodded my head yes and he placed the ring on my finger. It was just how I always told him I wanted it! Surrounded by my family, in my hometown. Some people want glitz and glam, but I just want to be Mrs. Josh Delozier. He is my soulmate and I can’t wait to say “I do” on November 25th!!!❤️❤️❤️
