On this day FIVE years ago, on January 14th, my family and I were all in Disney World when Michael got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife.
It was the most magical day ever.
My family decided to take a walk over to the Wedding Pavilion for a family photo. Side note: I was totally against it and in such a grumpy mood because prior to this, I had talked all about how I wanted to get married inside the Wedding Pavilion one day and Michael would shut it down so fast and tell me that “it’s never going to happen, stop talking about it”. I was so mad at him for telling me pretty much that we will never get married, but he had a hidden agenda behind all of that. (He says now that he thought I knew he was going to propose so he tried to play it off like we were never going to get married. Haha!)
We all walked into the Wedding Pavilion, while I walked up towards the big window overlooking Cinderella’s Castle, which I thought everyone was walking up there with me and were physically standing up there with me, little did I know that everyone was standing back with their phones & cameras out ready to capture the special moment that was about to take place.
The funny (and amazing) thing is, Michael Bublé’s “Feeling Good’ song came on when I was looking out the window and all I kept thinking was “oh great, they are getting ready for someone’s magical wedding, a wedding that I will never have” when it was really just my Dad playing it on his phone for us. Because hello, I love Michael Bublé, and why wouldn’t it be playing when Michael proposed to me?! (WAAHHH!!!)
My first words when I turned back around were “oh my god”, but not because of Michael or because of all of the phones and cameras, but because my breath was truly taken away by the sight of the castle from that window.
Until I realized what was going on….
and I screamed….
and I cried…
Until Michael said to me “I love you so much, I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you marry me?”
And I was in total SHOCK, bawling my eyes out, and screaming on the top of my lungs “is this real life?”
I didn’t even say yes right away because all I kept saying was “is this real life?” LOL
Finally, my Mom asked “did she say yes?” and I shouted yes in my screechy, shaking, crying voice.
I was SO beyond happy. I couldn’t even believe that Michael, who was once my boyfriend, was now my fiancé!
I can’t believe this was FIVE whole years ago. We were such babies! Time sure does fly when you are having fun! 😉
I must say so myself, the best decision Michael ever made was to ask me to marry him, and I’m not saying this for him, I’m saying it for ME. I am so blessed to be his wife and to be able to do this life with him. I thank God every single day for sending me this man!
