My fiancé left for Marine Corps boot camp in September, and I could not wait for him to return home. Little did I know that when he returned home, my life would be changing forever. After boot camp, Josh was allowed to come home for seventeen days. Lucky for me it was over Christmas!
On Christmas Eve, Josh told me that he really wanted to get married, but right now he just did not have the money. I was devastated, but held it inside because I didn't want to make him upset. On Christmas day, Josh and I went for a walk to a beautiful white gazebo where we stood and talked for fifteen minutes. I turned away to look at the scenery, and when I turned back around he was on one knee and said, "Ashley, I want you to marry me." I was so shocked that I couldn't even speak for thirty seconds before I yelled, "Yes!" This was the happiest day of my life and I know that they will only be getting better as we begin our lives together!
