Afterall, we have experienced quite a bit in our almost 6 1/2 years as a couple. We haven't taken the most conventional of roads: adopting animals, buying a house, moving 1400 miles away, buying another house, having two babies.... all before marriage. But, we love our life together and wouldn't change a second of any of it.
Then to my surprise, my best friend and soulmate asked me if I would be his wife.
It was simple, romantic and perfect.
I said yes.
Even though we've been together longer than many couples actually stay married, it was an extremely exciting and emotional moment for the both of us. He was visibly shaking and I'm pretty sure you could see my smile from the space station.
Afterward we went back to the resort, took a few pictures and settled in for a wonderful night's sleep. (Which ended up being not so wonderful since Jason received a call from a wrong number at 3 am that woke both of us up and kept both of us from getting back to sleep. Ugh!)
So, I changed into my swimsuit and headed down to the pool. Jason was very upset about the situation, but there really wasn't anything that could be done. After swimming for a bit, we decided to check out and head to Austin to look around the city.
We found a Botanical Garden that would be a beautiful location to get married at. In fact, there was a wedding there that day! I'm not sure how the bride and groom didn't melt in their formal attire- it was over 100 degrees out! Their Oriental Gardens were our favorite and we had a great time walking around looking at all of the lovely fountains, ponds and plants.
36 weeks and 2 days)
After an hour or so, we were both officially exhausted from walking around in the heat. We decided to grab a quick bite for lunch and head back home to pick up our little guy (who had the time of his life staying with our friends! We're surprised he even wanted to come back home with us!).
I'm so glad that Jason and I were able to have a such an incredible night away. Which turned into a night that neither one of us will ever forget.
Now I've got a wedding (in Ohio, phew!) to plan! Wish me luck. :)
