three years ago today, Greg surprised me with a proposal after almost 10 years of dating… :))))))))) he took me to the brooklyn botanical garden for the cherry blossom festival, we both love cherry blossom trees!


the day started off pretty interesting as i was in a terrible mood from some asshole on the road, plus once we got there the gardens were overcrowded with other patrons and i have super bad anxiety in crowds! ugh.

i was extremely surprised when greg started telling me how much he loved me and how badly he needed me in his life forever, and dropped down to one knee in front of hundreds of people! actually i was so excited i just kept saying “holy shit, no way, holy shit!” lmao it was an amazing experience…we both totally forgot all the people around us, until i said yes and the circle that had formed around us exploded with applause! one of the most memorable days of my life <3


i love you boo, today more than ever!

what is your engagement story? i would love to hear it!!

    What a pretty place to propose!! Ours wasn’t nearly as exciting 🙂 I had been upset with him, and he ended up surprising me at my apartment with the ring and proposing. It was perfect to me!

    My engagement and wedding were both pretty lame. I was 18 and my husband was 22 when we found out we were pregnant. So we decided to get married before I started showing but this was 11 years ago and now i know it’s exceptable to wait. We were so young we didn’t have a clue. we went ring shopping together and found all three bands for $300, I bought my wedding dress in the prom department even though there was this dress I loved at a bridal shop but it was $300 which at the time I just couldn’t even though I had a brand new credit card burning a hole in my wallet. About 7 months after we got married (on the beach in FL in August! So hot!) we started working for a wonderful catering company (Townsends Catering) which we stayed at for 9 years. Now that I’m older and know so much more about weddings I would like to renew our vows and have the wedding that should have been. We missed our 10 year anniversary so I’m shooting for the 15th!

    This is the sweetest! Every girl deserves to feel as though she is the most loved in the world. It is so fun to look back, and swoon over my proposal story, and I look forward to sharing it with my kids in the future.
