Two weeks ago I was as sick as can be. All within two days, I had strep throat, a sinus infection and had a crown put in at the dentist office! I was definitely not looking or feeling my best.
That Friday evening, Zack called and asked what he could bring me for dinner. I replied, "Just some mashed potatoes." He stayed over to keep me company. The next morning I was trying to get ready so we could grab our favorite breakfast tacos, but he kept bugging me. Everywhere I turned in my small apartment; there he was, acting very weird. I just figured that he was hungry, so I tried to hurry.
I went to my jewelry box to get my earrings, and when I opened it up, there it was, sitting perfectly in the ring holder. I shut the lid real fast, turned around and said, "What is that?" He smiled, got down on one knee and said, "I'll bring you mashed potatoes when you are sick, and I will love you forever. Will you marry me?" Of course I said, "Yes!" once I caught my breath. He opened the jewelry box back up and put it on my hand. I had wet hair, no make-up on, and was wearing a t-shirt and jeans. It's nothing like I had expected. Instead, it was perfection!
