Jenna and Ryan
How He Asked
October 22nd was like any other day, my boyfriend of two and a half years and I went to our Sunday morning church, him and his family took us out to lunch after service. I told him on the way there that he wasn’t allowed to propose to me that day because I looked ugly, I had known Ryan was going to propose and I thought I would have known when he was going to do it, but on that day I was so oblivious.
After lunch Ryan and I started heading back home, we were taking back roads, and on the back roads we take, there is this spot that leads into a field and that’s where Ryan asked me to be his girlfriend, so whenever we pass it we always honk at it.
On that day, Ryan decided we should stop and look around, and I was like heck yeah!!! I told him I wasn’t going to put my long boots back on because they made my legs itchy, so I got out of the truck in my fuzzy socks and a dress… We were looking around the field and Ryan was looking in one particular spot, and I asked what he was looking for, and he just stated he was taking in the view.
When I turned my head back towards him he grabbed my hand, and said “Jenna” in a really calm matter, and in that moment I knew what was happening. So I kept saying “oh my goodness, no stop” because I thought he was just kidding, and then he got down on one of his knees and pulled out the ring that I told him I wanted so badly, tears started to roll down my face and he asked me to marry him.
I said yes and then his friends came out recording us and after all of this was said and done, we dropped Ryan’s friends off at their cars and then a cop drove up to one of our friends and said we were called in for “suspicious activity” and our friend told him it was a proposal and the cop was like alright and left. We went back to Ryan’s house, and when we got there all of my friends and family were there to congratulate us and gives us hugs. It will forever be one of my favorite memories.
