Brent is a very romantic man... we live in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada... and he decided to take me on a surprise trip down to Myrtle Beach, in South Carolina!!! We had both never been there before, and I had ABSOLUTELY no idea we were going, or that he was going to propose... he even lied while crossing the border because he didn't want me to find out then :)
We finally got there (17 hour drive!!! We love roadtrips though!) and he apparently had the ring in the box in his pocket the entire time, because he was waiting for the perfect moment to propose!! He ended up proposing the second night there (August 21st)!
We were at Broadway on the Beach, watching fireworks on the bridge.. He was holding me in his arms when he started saying how much he loved me, and so on, when he finally said "will you marry me"?!?! i was SOOO shocked, and of course, I said YES!!!!! He was holding on to the ring for dear life because we were on a bridge with water underneath, and I have a tendency to jump when I get excited!! haha.
We then went infront of a random restaurant to have a look at the ring in the light, and Brent was spinning me around looking at the ring, when the waitress came out and said "I'm sorry to ruin your romantic moment... but did you two just get engaged?!?" We said "yes", then looked inside the windows of the restaurant and saw everyone up cheering and shouting congratulations to us!! haha, just like out of the movies!!!
We then went back to our hotel room, and called our parents. He had asked my parents permission (which meant the world to me), so they were very happy for me! When I called his parents (whom I love), after I said... guess what.... I'M ENGAGED!!!
His mother replyed "oh, to who?!?!" haha..
what a perfect, perfect vacation!!
The perfect thing was that I had absolutely no idea he was going to propose, and he picked the ring out all by himself!!!
I Love Brent!!
