first of all, we have had a wedding date since november
and it has been SO hard not to tell anyone
but i had to wait until he proposed
here's how it happened:
bennett took me to a state park in dunedin, florida called honeymoon island. once we got there, we ate our packed lunches and walked around on the beach looking for seashells. it was pretty cold, so we decided to walk a nature trail to warm ourselves up. after seeing a bald eagle and five armadillos, we found a nice area to sit where there was a bench looking out to a bay. i thought to myself how perfect it would be if he proposed there, and seconds later he pulled a ring out of his pocket and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. after several kisses and many tears, I said yes.
