Our Engagement

To say that I didn't see this engagement coming would be an understatement.

Todd had always lead me to believe that he would never get married again.  As much as I believe in marriage and wanted to be married again, this was not a relationship deal breaker.  I was in a good place and I was content to carry on loving life with a fabulous incredible amazing man!

Unbeknownst to me, Todd had been carrying around a piece of paper with my ring size for about 2 years.  I had no idea and wasn't told of this until after he was on bended knee.

Our engagement took place in the Dominican Republic on the last day of our vacation, and as I said I didn't see this engagement coming.  Apparently, neither did he.  One minute we are sitting talking to each other and the couple we are away with and the next, he is in front of me, asking me to marry him!  I can remember my hands on his face, crying, saying, "Really?  Are you sure?  Really?  Really? Really?"  All the while, laughing and crying. He was laughing and crying.  The couple with us, were shocked and laughing, both of them were crying.  I can't even tell you the joy and excitement I felt.

There was no ring, (bought later) no flowers, no music and no over the top actions, but our engagement couldn't have been more perfect and I couldn't be happier.  Happy Heart Happy Me!

You know when you know and I tell you what girl i was in the same boast as you because my FI had already been married twice and I was under impression for a long time that he didn't want to marry again because he had his heart broken twice,but like you he suprised me on my birthday this year and I didn't see it coming either and when I asked why he answer was that I was special and he had been waiting his whole life to meet someone like me,mind you FI is now 54, he was 52 when we met and he proposed when he was 53.

So when i read your story my heart skipped a beat, Congradulation and I wish you all the best for the future ahead.

That is very inspiring!
