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.
