clint & i had just got back from an amazing weekend with our friends at bass lake, ca, thus returning from a long 4-day weekend & going back to work was definitely not the business. the only thing keeping me motivated for the short work week was clint’s 31st birthday that wednesday. my family & i planned to go to half moon bay for dinner at night to celebrate by the bay…little did i know it would also the mark the date of our engagement.
before heading to the restaurant, he asked me to join him in the living room where he proposed in my parents’ house with not only my family surrounding us but also his lovely family via facetime in indiana. it was the perfect proposal. intimate. family-oriented. i still get flooded with emotions whenever i remember that he chose his birthday to ask me to be his wife. it mimics his character in the sense that he is so selfless, sacrificial & servant-hearted. i kept asking him why today & telling him this was his day, his time; but he made the counterargument that no — it was & will always be ours.
