Dan and I had our first date January 31, 2016. And it has been pure bliss ever since. I’ve had a rough patch of dating all the wrong people, but this time was different. We see eye to eye on so many aspects of life, we both have a laid back free spirit type of personality that just meshes so well. He is always thoughtful and goes out of his way to make me feel appreciated, special, and important daily. I have so much respect for him as a father, a friend to Makenna, and a teacher, the way he impacts his students and mentors them even well after graduation melts my heart.
So we decided to travel to Thailand together. The first 4 days we were in Bangkok, interesting city, very busy, and far from romantic! Later Dan told me he was getting nervous because it wasn’t what he’d had in mind. Then we flew to Phuket. Beautiful white sand beaches, a tropical rainforest. We get to our hotel and the rooms aren’t ready. No biggie, so we decide to enjoy a cocktail while we wait for it. A few other people we were traveling with told me to go to the window and get a photo of my drink with the beach and resort as the background (little did I know they were distracting me)
Then, out of nowhere, it’s starts pouring down rain. And Dan knows I have always had a fantasy for kissing in the rain, so he asks me “do you want to go kiss on the beach?” And obvi… YES! So we head down, take off our shoes and start kissing, it was beautiful ❤ I tell him, let’s go into the water! So I turn to him reaching out for his hand, and he is down on one knee, he tells me that I’ve made him the happiest boyfriend in the world, and asks me to make him the happiest husband in the world❤YES, so many yesses!!!
I couldn’t have had a better story. It was perfect, just us all alone on this beautiful beach half way across the world.
Dan, ever since you have come into my life, I have been nothing but happy. You are my soul mate, and the one who truly understands me, and I understand you ❤
You have made me believe again, in true love, you inspire me to be better. I have loved every one of our adventures, and I can’t wait for many many more! I love you and all of your sweet little girls!
I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you, I can’t wait to be your wife, and a second mommy to all of your girls ❤
Best trip ever ❤
