I know this happened a year ago, but it definitely deserves a spot on the blog forever! I would relive this moment over and over again if I could! It was absolutely dreamy and perfect.
Before I tell the story of our engagement, it’s important to know exactly how our First Date went down. On our first date, Drew took me to the Willow Park Zoo, and then we had a picnic in the park with the cutest picnic basket ever! I thought it was all adorable, however I was so nervous I barely even ate a single thing. I just kept on dipping the same chip in salsa over and over again. Since then, Willow Park became our spot. We would meet here every day as it was exactly half way between each of our houses. Our first kiss even happened here too!
After dating for 3 months, we knew we both wanted to marry each other. That sounds crazy to think about, but it felt like we had known each other forever. We went ring shopping in September, now all I had to do was wait.
On October 23rd, 2020, Drew surprised me with the most perfect engagement ever! That night he told me to meet him at our place-Willow Park and come hungry because we were going to get Costa Vida. Little did I know he would be popping the question instead-and there would be no Costa Vida involved! Haha!
As soon as I got there, I saw that he had our picnic basket and blanket set up in the middle of the park. It was set up at the exact same spot that we sat at for the picnic on our first date! He pulled out some flowers, a book he had made containing “Our Story” and a box that looked like it had a ring, and got on one knee. He read the book to me, and proposed. The rest was a blur. I remember Drew’s sister Cali was hiding behind a tree to take pictures, and didn’t even noticed our families watching from across the street. Just like that, we were engaged, and it was the engagement of my dreams for sure! I LOVE YOU DREW JENSEN GLOVER!
