1) Daytona Beach

My girlfriend and I were on vacation in Daytona
Beach last summer. She suggested that we take a moonlit stroll on
the beach, which I thought was unusual, because it was very late
and we were both tired from driving all day. We got to the pier
and she stopped and dropped to one knee. I thought she had stepped
on something so I tried to help her up.

The next thing I know she pulls out this ring
and proposes to me! I was so shocked when I saw the ring, the only
word that came out of my mouth was, “NO!” Not because I didn’t want
to marry her, but because I couldn’t believe what was happening.
It turns out that she had this planned for a few months. She had
even went to my dad and asked for my hand in marriage. Everyone
of my friends knew what was going on but me.

When everything sunk in, I finally said yes after
being chased by a pelican but that’s a whole different story. Aimme
and I have been married for almost six months now and I still think
of that moment every day.
