Allie and Austen
How He Asked
Austen & I had been together for a little over 2 years when we found out we were pregnant. Fast forward and our little man is 7 months old and it’s our first vacation out of the country and our first time being without him for so long. His mom and step-dad took us and his sisters to Playa Del Carmen in July for a family vacation, our second day out of 7 we were going to take family pictures. We all get ready and head out to a courtyard out front of our resort and as soon as I step foot into the area I see it… “Mom, will you marry my dad?”
I had been missing my son more than words could describe and my love for Austen shot through the roof with the most beautiful gesture I could think of. He got down on one knee with family surrounding us (not a dry eye in sight) and popped the question. All while my best friends and family were on FaceTime watching the whole thing. His family planned and paid for the entire vacation just for him to propose. I have never felt this love before and I can wait to spend the rest of my life reciprocating that same love.
