How He Asked
After almost 4 years together and so many memories made… my best friend asked me to be his wife!! We made our relationship “official” on April 28, 2013. He told me in November of 2013 that he was going to marry me someday. He’s been by my side throughout my 4 years in college and wanted to respect my Dad’s wishes by waiting until I graduate to get married. We booked our trip to the Grand Canyon 5 months ago. With it being my last semester in college, I started to wonder if he was going to propose on our trip. Once at the Grand Canyon, I noticed that he wanted to take lots of pictures. He’s not usually a picture person so I thought that was odd. Then I thought, maybe he’s just amazed at how beautiful this view is. He told me to ask a stranger to take a picture of us. I asked, and the super sweet man took multiple pictures. I thanked him and said they were perfect!
Jonah told me to have him take a few more. I started to wonder why he wanted more… he usually doesn’t want to take pictures! Once I handed the stranger my phone, I turned around and my best friend was on one knee with the ring in his hand. I immediately started crying! I don’t even remember everything he said because I couldn’t stop staring at the ring!! I was so overwhelmed with happiness!! I can remember him saying “is that a yes babe!?” and all I could do was nod repeatedly because I couldn’t say the word yes!! It was the perfect moment and I will always remember how special that day was. 01/10/17
