BEST. DAY. EVER. (Until our wedding day takes the cake!)
Little did I know that when Matt asked me to go to his work dinner that night, and my boss magically gave me the day off without me asking, he had a little more planned for me than I expected. Matt picked me up for his "work dinner" and said there was traffic in Seattle so he wanted to drive through Edmonds first. The rain stopped and the sky cleared up as we stepped outside the car and walked hand in hand down the pier, laughing, talking, and enjoying time together. We think of Edmonds as "our beach" because it's where we first talked about becoming boyfriend & girlfriend, and where we had our first kiss. When we got to the end of the pier he took my hands and started talking about us in a way he never had voiced before, then got down on a knee.. I don't remember fully what he said or how I replied, I just know my heart had never been so full! My brother and his wife came out of nowhere and has been taking pictures of us the whole time, and our parents came down the pier to celebrate with us; I had no idea everyone knew and he had panned all of it. Matt suggested we eat at our favorite restaurant right by the beach, and when we walked in our best friends and families were all there to celebrate us! I have never felt more loved & special in my whole life.
I wanted to share this story because I want to be candid, real, and we want you all to join us on this journey! I am so excited for the months to come, so know that posting about the progress and steps towards marriage are out of pure excitement and joy! Thank you all for the love & support.
