April Fool's

Today is actually a very special day....

Two years ago today was a Sunday, a little chilly, and slightly drizzeling. I spent the morning getting ready for a date with my then boyfriend. I remember changing outfits a few times as I often do because it was one of those days where nothing looked right. I also had a funny feeling about that day like something big was going to happen. My boyfriend who is always late didn't fail to keep his reputation and actually showed up two hours late! We headed out and by that time I was a little annoyed at him because he was so late and because I was starving! In the car we're talking about where we want to eat and he asked me if we could make a quick pit stop...I agreed and he pulled into the local park. The park where we first actually met and spoke to one another. He had planned out a picnic with all my favorite foods and some gorgeous tulips. It was a little chilly and he had packed sweatshirts just in case. The air smelled like it was about to rain and we casually talked about the weekend while we ate. Right as it started to rain he pulled out a heart shape box, which held another heart shaped box, and ultimately can you guess???













The funny thing was nobody besides our immediate family believed us and one of my uncles actually hung up on my mom 3 times...The above photo was taken later in the evening at a small surprise ceremony with all my family! Happy April Fools Day!!!
