The Proposal

I know that this is the story that everyone wants to know. I get asked day after day and to be quite honest after the millionth time telling it you start to feel silly.

Josh knows that I absolutely hate surprises that I know about. Christmas and my birthday come very difficult each year because I am a girl of little patience and the anticipation kills me. We had talked a lot about rings and weddings and marriage, I guess after two and a half years of writing letters, phone calls, and visits things like that just come up. When January arrived and I finally had Josh close enough to see him as I pleased so naturally the talk got more serious. I knew that we were going to get married and that he was the one that I wanted to spend eternity with, I just wasn't sure when all of this was going to happen. Josh had his wheels turning already.

On one of our last nights in Cedar City before we had to separate for the summer after a long day or packing and moving we decided that the lack of food in the house just wasn't going to sustain us until the next morning so we headed out to dinner. After dinner Josh asked if I would drive him to his house, so I complied. He hadn't mentioned that he needed to go there so I assumed that he had forgotten something. Next to his house is a vacant street, completely dark and very quiet. He asked me to park along the street and put a slow song on. We had danced before in the street so I didn't really think much of it. I'm not sure what he said, but as we continued to dance he began talking about the future.

His heart started pounding, so I asked if everything was alright, he dropped to his knee and asked if I would spend the rest of my life with him.

I said yes...
May 3, 2011 became th beginning of the rest of our lives together. I'm not sure what the future holds but together we can learn. There will be ups and downs and inbetweens. This is Writing on paper with no lines.
