I'm engaged!

(I have waited a week to post about this and it's been eating away at me! I wanted to tell my girlfriends first on the phone.)
Shawn asked me to be his wife in Aruba in the sweetest most memorable way! I had no idea he brought a ring on vacation and had been planning this. He completely surprised me after 14 years! Take a look at the video footage below first of the location he proposed at. I took this a little before he did it. It's a really beautiful area of Aruba where the ocean comes under these rock formations and you can crawl around under them.

So after I took this photo of a snail he yelled at me to stop taking photos and come look at the sunset. I would not stop so he jumped down on all fours by a rock and made like he was looking under it, at a fish. He told me to come down where he was and check it out. So I looked under the rock and Shawn came up, already on his knees with a ring, (there was no fish,) and said "Heather, will you be me wife?" I lost it! I cried and could not stop hugging him. I did not even look at the ring or answer him I just kept saying " What?! is this for real?!" Finally I said yes and realized he was holding a ring in front of me. I keep playing this moment over and over in my head because it feels like such a blur now, I don't want to forget it!

This photo is blurry but I remember taking it as soon as everything sunk in.

This is me absolutely thrilled that night!

I was so excited to tell Jason, Shawn's brother who was also on vacation with us. I do not have any siblings so Jason has been like a brother and friend since he was 12 years old. He was grinning at me all day long after I told him.

I was so nervous to tell Shawn's parents, I think because I had pictured the moment in my head for so long what his mother's reaction would be like. So I wanted it to be perfect. It was. She screamed and cried with happiness.

We were so happy the rest of the vacation. Thank you, Shawn, for making this the best moment of my life!

None of these photos have been enhanced. This is what the sunsets really look like in Aruba.

I love watching Shawn swim. We both have such a love for the ocean.

Congratulations to you and Shawn both! It is funny, I was speaking to mutual friends of ours recently and I was asking if you guys were ever going to get hitched. Congratulations again! I wish you both a loving journey.
