While on vacation for a week with my family in Kauai, my then boyfriend, now fiancé, Eric, suggested that it would be nice if just the two of us could go out to dinner, away from the family for a few hours. He did some asking around and found out when the sun would set, and the best beach on the island to watch it - Ke'e Beach.
He took me there to watch the sunset, and when I asked him to pull out his camera to take a picture; he took out a ring box instead! He said he had to ask me something first, "Will you marry me?" I said, "Yes, of course I will!" When he opened the box for me, I saw a beautiful solitaire and I cried. Turns out he had carried the ring in his backpack all the way from home, through the airport, hiking around Kauai, and et cetra. And without me knowing, he had met with my parents over a month earlier! It was the best surprise of my life, and we are now planning to get married on Kauai in November of 2009!
