Victoria and Ryan

me and ryan

It was our typical summer vacation but we decided to go somewhere different this time. We went to a resort on Stoney Lake about 45 minutes north of where we live. Enjoying the outdoors and boating on the lake with Ryan’s friend were some of the fun activities we participated in. On Tuesday, July 28th 2015 it started normal. We checked out of the resort we stayed on and went out for breakfast. After breakfast we had already decided we would spent the day at his friend’s cottage on Stoney Lake. We had made plans before to go canoeing just up the road from his friend’s cottage but that morning I was NOT feeling it at all. Ryan bugged and bugged so finally off we went. This was a new experience for both of us having to portage and canoe. It definitely tried every ounce of my patience with Ryan and myself. We knew that we were canoeing to a waterfall on a creek just off Stoney Lake. It took about an hour to get there. I was freaking out the whole time worried that I would fall into the weeds. We finally got there and it was absolutely stunning but I was definitely just ready to go back and be done with this. Ryan tried to get me to walk right up to the top of the waterfall but I was not doing that. That’s when he turned to me and said I brought you here for a reason. All I could do was laugh a little because we’ve been together for 7.5 years I was very hopeful. He got down on one knee and asked me the burning question…. “Will you marry me?” and of course I said YES!!! As we were canoeing back he says “Woah look at that rock!” I said “where?!” He said “On your finger hahaha”. It was most definitely an amazing proposal. He did such an amazing job and I am one lucky lady!
