Something Crazy Happened


It was such a normal day. I went to work, walked home, got a text from Stacey saying that she and Alex couldn't make it to pub trivia. So Josh suggested we have a date night and see The Great Gatsby. He said it was playing at the same theater we had our first date at, so I asked if we could go to the restaurant we had our first date at, Flowers. But he was like, "nahhh," which was very irregular... He's a very "go-with-the-flow" kind of person. So we went to Chipotle instead. Which we love, so it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. 

After dinner, we started walking up the street to theater, and we passed Flowers. I looked in the window, because they have huge windows facing the street, and saw a lot of familiar faces, and balloons... "Josh..." I said. He tried to distract me, but it was too late. I thought that it was a going-away party, but all of the sudden, Josh got down on one knee, right their on the sidewalk, with passers-by watching. I started crying. I was completely shocked. Just earlier that day, I had been thinking that I would probably have to wait until next summer to get engaged because we were so busy. But no. Josh had a speech, but I can't really remember it. I even asked him to repeat it, but it's still all a blur. When I said yes, people on the street cheered. 

Leslie took the pictures above. We went into Flowers, where our good friends were waiting for us. Champagne was on the house. Stacey bought a coconut cream pie from our favorite pie shop. 

My ring: Was made by Moorea! I started crying all over again when she told me. It's an emerald cut diamond with a rose gold band. I love it so much. It's totally my style and it's even more special because my best friend created it.

So that's our story. Oh! Josh was going to propose in the theater, but because I saw everyone, he said "to hell with it" and did it right there. I'm so impressed with him. He's an amazing fiance. Ahhh!
