NON-Teacher Related Post

Morning Love! Do you all remember yesterday when I told you guys I was going to celebrate my boyfriends birthday with family? My grandmother had planned a big party for both my little sister and boyfriend Skip. Their birthdays are a day apart so it wasn't weird to be celebrating them with both of our families.  

Anyway, everything was going good! There was at least 30 to 40 people at my grandparents house eating, talking and just having a good time. Then everyone was called into the living room to sing happy birthday, we sung and all of a sudden people wanted to make speeches. My sister was first (keep in mind that she is 10) Her speech was simple "Thank you all for coming to celebrate my birthday with me and Skip!" Then my boyfriend was next, the room was QUIET, I'm talking you could hear a pin drop. He says "My speech involves Takara" (my stomach drops) I walk over to him and he begins to speak again. He starts "Takara we have been together for three years, you helped me grow spiritually and made me smile more than I knew was possible and for that I think you deserve the world. But since I can't give you that I'll give you the next best thing. Takara will you marry me?" iDied!!! Then I said yes! lol  Then he slid the beautifulest ring in the WHOLE world on my finger! It all really felt like a dream and I was so happy that I was able to share that moment with family and friends, and now I'm sharing it with you! 


I promise this will me the last engagement/wedding post on this blog, I'll be starting a new blog for that type of stuff!


Still super overjoyed and thankful!
