It was the last day of our beautiful vacation in Maui, Hawaii. We were swimming in the water at a beach in Kihei, graciously enjoying the sunset. The water was very warm and exhilarating. The sun looked like it was melting into the ocean, along with the Island of Lani in the background. The moment couldn't be any more perfect.
We were being very "lovey dovey," with kisses and hugs. Steve then held me and said, "Patricia, you know that I love you very much and could spend the rest of my life with you, right?" I replied, "Yes, I love you too." He then held me closer and looked into my eyes and asked, "Patricia, will you marry me?" My heart sank and my stomach filled with butterflies. My body stiffened with shock and the feeling of excitement was over whelming.
I looked at him with tears welling in my eyes and said, "Yes baby, I will." We gave each other a kiss and held each other for a moment. I couldn't believe what had just taken place. A new chapter in our lives was about to start. We walked back onto the shore holding hands. As we arrived back to the sand I jumped in his arm and he spun me around in circles. This was one of the best days of our lives!
