The date was 17th August 2010.
My 22nd birthday.
I received the gift that I had been wishing for for years.
Time slowed down.
In the middle of a busy restaurant I felt like we were the only two people there.
I was asked to close my eyes by the man of my dreams.
When I was granted permission to reopen them...
open in front of me,
was my perfect engagement ring.
I could feel my eyes start to fill with tears of joy.
There was nothing I could do about it.
I watched as his eyes started to well.
He said the four words every girl wants to hear,
"will you marry me?"
I couldn't speak.
All I could do was nod.
I love this man with all my heart.
Nothing fills me with greater joy than the knowledge that I will be his wife.
And he will be my husband.
We've been together for 4 years 9 months.
We've been engaged for 2 days.
We'll be together forever.
