My Fiance and I have been together 6 years, and from the very moment I saw him I wanted to marry him! It was a very long 6 years as he was not “the marrying type” and despite my relentless attempts and even asking him myself, I had given up! He is so loving and kind I could not imagine why this man did not want to get married. The time came that I became comfortable with the fact it will never happen and just having him in my life was amazing!
Around this time that I had this realization, we had planned a trip for my birthday. A really nice 2 week roadtrip down to California. On my birthday, we went to my favorite place in the whole world. Disneyland! We spent the whole day there, and had such a great time, he even took me for dinner in the most expensive restaurant there, the Blue Bayou. Such a romantic atmosphere, which was not a surprise as he is so good to me. After dinner we were just in time to watch the fireworks, laughing and talking about my birthday and how great it had been I turned around and he was suddenly on his knees!! Confused, I started laughing asking what was wrong. He said he had been so tired of waiting for me to give up asking to get married so he could surprise me!! He didn’t want me to see it coming! I was so stunned I burst into tears, and had to wait until he stopped laughing and I stopped crying to ask me! It was such a beautiful proposal! Everyone around us starting cheering and clapping. Afterwards he took me into my favorite store and bought me a tiara I wanted to buy earlier but thought it might be silly to wear anywhere else but in Disneyland! He said he wanted to ask me when I was looking at it so he could say “well you can wear it on your wedding day!” It was the best day of my life! (so far!!)
