Kristopher and I had been dating for nearly two and a half years before he surprised me with the ultimate question. On January 20, 2009, Kris and I were on a vacation with his parents in Puerto Vallarta. One night after watching the sunset and walking on the beach we decided to get a bite to eat at the most romantic looking restaurant called Epoca. Our table was on the beach in the sand, the sun had just set, and a harpist came by to play my favorite Michael Buble song "Save the Last Dance for Me."
After dinner and dessert, Kris pulled out the most amazing ring and asked me to marry him. I was completely shocked! He had saved up money for an entire year to buy this ring, and he had even met with my parents a few weeks before our vacation to obtain their approval. Kris and I had never been ring shopping together before, so to set this entire thing up without me knowing was amazing.
We're so excited to get married this summer in August at my parents' house. My father is a pastor, so we are doing the ceremony and reception in my childhood backyard. I'm looking forward to starting my life with my best friend and lover.
