My boyfriend and I were on vacation in Key Largo. On our first day there, we decided to relax and hang out on the resort grounds. We had some lunch at the outside cabana bar, drank a few lounge chair drinks and jumped in and out of the water since it was so hot. At one point, a baby manatee came up near shore and all the guest were checking it out, which I thought was the coolest thing ever.
Later that afternoon, I went in the water to cool off when he decided to come join me. When he was walking out to where I was, he shouted, "Ow! That really hurt!" I asked him what was wrong, and he said he stepped on something sharp. "Look at what I just pulled out of my foot," he said. He brought his hand up out of the water, he opened his palm and I saw the ring. I instantly teared up and couldn't find any words for about a solid minute. Then he asked if I would marry him, and of course I said, "Yes!"
