If you’re not following me on Twitter or SnapChat or if you haven’t heard it through the grape vine as yet, my long time boyfriend (Marcel) and I got engaged and I am as happy as a kid in a candy store. He totally caught me by surprise on our vacation trip. We always spoke about getting married but I never would have guessed that he would have popped the question anytime soon.
We have been together for four and a half years and we have been through the roughest of storms and sunshine together and even when we thought we have been through everything possible, there were even more obstacles and battles and we conquered them all together and we are grateful for each other.
How it happened!
I was literally in shock, I had no clue at all. We got to our Resort on Monday and he asked on our final night. We went out to have dinner, after which there was a little entertainment for the guests at the Resort and we sat and enjoyed the music and drinks. There were hidden gestures during the show, now thinking about it…but I still wasn’t able to predict it happening.
After the show, we went for a little walk to take in the beautiful night sceneries one last time. On our way back to our room, a staff member asked to take some pictures, we said yes, in my head it’s our final night and would I love some beautiful shots, in his head it’s the opportune time to get down on one knee.
After a few shots, he starting kneeling and I started thinking…”what’s happening”…then I saw the ring and I was speechless…my heart started pounding fast…my eyes got teary…and I was shaking…he asked…will you…and I uttered yes, of course! In those little moments of absolute silence all I could think is…my God this man is everything.
It has only been a few days, since and I feel different, my perspective on our relationship has changed, in a good way, of course. I thank God for him everyday and we love and cherish each other, as with every relationship, we have our ups and downs but nothing we are not willing to work out together.
Our friends and family are happy and excited for us. All I think about now is all those movies I saw when I was younger and wondered what it would be like to be engaged, it’s so better than I had imagined. It is so much easier and fulfilling where you’re absolutely in love with the each other.
Ring on my phone and ring on my finger! ha ha…it’s perfect and the most beautiful thing. I can’t stop staring at it. I love it and I love him. When I look at it, I see more than just a ring, I see us, our love…it’s magical! We can’t wait to share more with you guys! Thanks to everyone for their hearty congratulations and best wishes, it is even better with you guys. love!
