Well this was certainly a Christmas to remember. First my Mom, Dad, Little Sister and Boyfriend and I went to my older sisters house for Christmas Eve. We opened presents, and ate some food.
At about five o'clock my boyfriend and I got ready to go out. It was a surprise date for me. We left my sisters house and drove for what seemed for ever and I finally saw hints to where we were going. We were heading to where we go Contra dancing. I was a little happy to be going there, I mean I've not been dancing for a while and it would be nice to go again. Well we pull up to the dance hall and I notice that all of the lights int he building were out and there were no cars in the lot. I was just a tad confused. "There is no one here." I said. "I know." said my boyfriend as he got out of the car. I get out and hold my coat close to me against the cold night. It was lovely outside. As we walked around to the front of the building he stopped me and we stood under a street lamp. "We have been dating for 1 year, 6 months, 25 days, and 23 hours. This is where I took you dancing for the first time on April 22, 2009. And that was the night I first held your hand. This is also where we went to our first waltz May 30, 2009 and I asked you to be my girlfriend. Thus started our courtship and deeper friendship. I want you to look at some pictures I have for you." and here he hands me some pictures. The pictures were of places that play a part of our friendship and courtship. Where we first met, his house, my house, his dorm, and the place where we went to our swing dance lessons. The last picture was of a ring...... I look over to see my boyfriend down on one nee with a box and a beautiful ring. I immediately start to cry. He said, "We have been through a long journey together and i know that we have grown together and grown closer to God as well, and I'm asking that we continue our journey. Will you MARRIE ME!?"
OH THAT'S RIGHT I'M ENGAGED!!!!
I can't believe it my self. It was so romantic. And sweet. It was the best Christmas present I've ever received. I love him so much. And we are growing more in love with every day!
We are planing on getting married sometime in 2012. That way he can finish college and we will have a few months to plan. Maybe October. I love the fall. And it well be a wonderful outdoor fall wedding.
Christmas day was great too. I and my sister each got a new sewing machine, and I got some drinking glasses and a crock pot for my hope chest.
This Was The Best Christmas Ever.
I pray that your Christmas was just as wonderful. God Bless.
