April 11,2016 was when Lance asked me to marry him. I still feel like I’m on cloud nine when I think about how he pulled off THE PERFECT PROPOSAL.

I was visiting him in Lynchburg, Va. He had taken a new job there. He moved away from Pensacola where we met and were dating. Things were serious between us but I loved living in Pensacola, Fl. I mean, my whole life was there! (MY family, THE BEACH!) So when he moved we were doing long distance and he would fly me up to see him. One weekend he flew me up after doing long distance for a few months. On the last day of my visit was when IT happened. I was in the car riding with him on our way to a date night before I had to go home the next day. During our drive to dinner Lance turned to me and said “I have a surprise for you! I hired a photographer to take a few pictures of us before we go out to eat”. I was excited about his surprise but I told him I wish he would have told me before hand so I could have coordinated our outfits. Lol- I’m such a girl when it comes to things matching. We met the photographer at Riverside Park. She was super sweet and acted like we were just going to snap a few pics. The temperature was just right, the sun was setting and the park was filled with colorful flowers all in full bloom. It couldn’t have been a prettier day to take pictures. The photographer walked around the park with us and snapped some shots.

After we took a few pictures we walked to a brick overlook that overlooked the mountains and the James River. The photographer directed me to look out at the mountains and Lance to face the camera. When I was directed  turn back around, I couldn’t believe my eyes! Lance was down on one knee and asked me to Marry Him! I was so surprised and filled with happiness. Of course I said yes!

 After I FaceTimed my family to tell them the exciting news, Lance and I drove to dinner as an engaged couple! When we got to our table a dozen red bloomed roses were waiting on me along with a bottle of champagne. It was so romantic. Lance pulled off the perfect proposal and I’m so happy to spend the rest of my life with him.
