this is the one he woke me up to see the morning he proposed!
This is the story of how we got engaged.
Many times before, while strolling along Kure beach, we took notice of the place with the yellow lighthouse and said we would stay there someday. Well finally this was the year, and the view from this luxurious oceanfront suite on the morning of our proposal was the perfect backdrop for such a grand gesture!
That morning we sat quietly on the balcony watching the sun come up as the waves crashed onto the shore. To make a gorgeous morning even better a couple of dolphins swam by our little view of the sea. I suddenly became so excited! I rushed back into the room for the binoculars (the b&b had provided) to get a closer look.
With the binoculars I returned to the balcony and sat down cross-legged and searched for the dolphins again. When I drew back the binoculars to spot them in the water, Kevin was standing
there in front of me, arm outstretched holding an opened box containing the absolutely perfect ring!
I don't remember what I said, or if I said anything at all? I do remember putting on the ring, jumping around the room and admiring it for a bit, before Kevin said, "Sooo.... Will you marry me?"
"YES!!! Of course!" I exclaimed.
