The Proposal

We were at a friends house for New Years Eve (one of my favorite holidays) and John was distant a good chunk of the night.  I didn't think anything about it, just figured he was busy socializing and telling everyone about our trip to Mexico that we just got back from.

Well, we all gathered in the living room to count down and during "10...9... 8" John was telling me how much he loved me and how much I mean to him.  Once again, I didn't think anything of it, just figured he was being sweet.  Then, at 1 he got down on one knee and simply asked "Will You Marry Me?"  I was REALLY shocked and the first thing that came out of my mouth was, "Are you serious?"  I had to put my drink down, said "yes, of course I would."  I kiss him and look up and EVERYONE is either videotaping it or taking pictures... all of our friends knew since Halloween!!  And when he wasn't around me during the night, it was because everyone wanted to see the ring!

Once I said yes and wiped the tears from my face, my parents then came over and were able to celebrate with us.  It was such a great night and something I will never forget.
