I had no idea that he was thinking about a proposal, we spoke about marriage and how we wanted to create a family together, but I didn't know the day he would ask would be on my 24th birthday (March 7, 2016). The night was really nice and elegant with most of our family in friends in attendance, about 25 people total. To give you a true picture of the day, I woke in a panic not knowing what I was going to wear, or what I was going to do with my nails or hair- typical woman struggles, but Will and my sister had it all planned out. Little did I know, they had a whole birthday party planned on my behalf and I for sure wasn't ready it. But my sister said "girl get up" and had me doing things left and right to be prepped for the night. I never questioned and asked why she was doing these nice things for me, but I agreed to literally everything she asked or wanted me to do.
So fast forward to the whole getting ready process, I find out that we're going to have dinner at the National Harbor in Maryland, and he planned a really nice dinner with a lot of my close friends and family, so it was pretty special to know that he did all this on his own and was able to get so many important people in the same room. It was exciting! Then he said let's go outside and take a picture by the ferris wheel, and after about 15 minutes trying to get everyone in the right formation, he whispered in my ear and said "Babe do you love me and do you want to be with me forever?"Of course I looked at him and said yes, but was more worried about getting the picture taken.
After he asked those questions I looked away and next thing you know he was down on one knee, asking me to be his wife. Of course I was like "this isn't happening right now," and had to pause to take all this in. He sat there and looked me in my eyes and said, "baby I want this forever and I wouldn't do it with anyone else but you. Will you marry me?" I said yes and it was one of the best nights I've ever had.
