That's right!!! I'm ENGAGED!!!!! Jarom popped the question this afternoon! He took me to the Rose Gardens, where we danced last time he was here, in the Gazebo. He asked me to dance and told me how much he loved me and we just talked. At this point i knew what was coming and i was so nervous! He told me about an old Welsh Tradition( He went on his mission to England, which included Wales) where young men carved wooden spoons and offered it to the girl he loved as a token of affection. He then pulled out a spoon for me that he had gotten when he was on his mission to someday give to the girl he loved...ME! I was so excited and nervous and giddy, i knew what i was going to get next! haha He told me that he wanted to spend Eternity with me, in so many words and got down on one knee and opened a box with a BEAUTIFUL Diamond ring in it! AHHHHH! I saw him getting on his knee and instantly put my hands over my mouth and asked him what he was doing, even though i knew exactly what he was doing! hahaha Then i cried tears of JOY and couldn't say anything but oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh! haha It took me forever to say yes, not because i was going to say no, i just didn't know how to say anything but "oh my gosh"! He just knelt there looking at me and laughing and finally he said "Sooooooo?" and of course i said YES!!! It was so magical! I've found the man of my dreams!! I'm so lucky!
He brought scooter along to capture the moment. of course, he wasn't there when it all went down. He was hiding in some bushes, or as he told me "going to the bathroom" taking pictures of the whole thing! Good idea!! I was really glad that he caught it all! We've had such a wonderful day together and can't stop looking at my beautiful ring! i still can't believe its mine! It's so perfect! he did a good job!!!! To answer any question, we don't have a date yet! haha but we will soon....hopefully!
