Danielle and Tyler

It was my 27th birthday and Tyler took to my favorite spot in Santa Monica.  It’s overlooking the ocean and I always come here to clear my head or just relax when I’m having a busy week, etc.  We were on our way to my birthday dinner – I didn’t know where we were going.  We actually had to stop at the gas station on the way because Tyler had a low tire.  I thought maybe I was going to get proposed to that night (for some reason) but when we stopped at the gas station I thought, “there’s no way!”  He seemed calm and didn’t seem like we was going to propose!

IMG_0968He then pulled over on our way to dinner and said lets go look at the water.  So we did…He asked me to ask him a question.  And I was obviously confused BUT remembered he took me there exactly a month before and did this question game.  I was like…OHHH!  I knew it was coming at that point!  It clicked!

Tyler started getting weird!  There was a dog around us with a sweater on.  He said twice, “that dog is weird”.  I was like YOU’RE ACTING WEIRD!

He asked me to ask him a question and I knew I had to come up with something good if his next question was what I think it was going to be.  I asked him, “how long do you want to live for?”  I know, weird question.  I felt like I had to go deep… He laughed and said “I don’t know, in my eighties..”  And then he said, “I have a question.. What are you doing for the rest of your life?”  Next thing he knew he was on one knee asking me to marry him!

Such a surreal moment!
