First of all, I wasn't expecting this at all! Whenever me and Frankie had talked about getting married, it had always been 2-3 years away...well SURPRISE!!
Throughout our whole relationship, when Frankie would drop me off at night, (or even sometimes when he wouldn't see me during the day), he would sometimes text me a couple minutes after I'm in the house and say, "hey I think I dropped something on your porch, can you go look for me." So I would go downstairs only to find a little note he wrote me, or a rose, or something cute like that. He would do this every now and then so obviously after a while of him "dropping things", I caught on to it...It was our 2 year anniversary, and he took me to San Diego all day. It was great. Really nice, walking around doing different things together. Coronado Island, Gaslamp District..anyway..He dropped me off at home and we said goodnight..I was upstairs talking to my mom when about 5 minutes later he calls, and says he thinks he dropped his wallet and asks if I can go check for him..I go downstairs, expecting to find a small letter, or something of that sort. I open the door only to find him standing there. With vases behind him filled with rose pedals and floating candles, and a big bouquet of roses. I was so surprised to see HIM there, let alone candles and roses..I still wasn't expecting anything, I just though figured he was being cute because it was our anniversary..he gave me a hug, and started talking:
"I promised you a year ago I would marry you. When I told you I loved you I told you I didn't want to be with anyone else but you, and the thought of you with anyone else makes me nauseated." Got down on one knee..."Danielle will you marry me?"
Like I said I had no idea what was going on, until he said "I promised you a year ago I would marry you.." I started getting teary eyed. The whole time he was talking, all that was going through my head was, "oh my gosh. what is he doing is he proposing what is he doing oh my gosh oh my gosh !!!" After I said yes (of course!), I started balling. I was in complete shock. (4 days later, I'm still in shock.) I can't believe I'm getting married!! Not only that, but I'm getting married in less than a year!!! August 21, 2011 is our date<3
His mom, sister, and brother-in-law were hiding behind my chimney the whole time, my parents were crouched up at the top of the stairs. We all celebrated after..
The way he proposed was perfect. It was sweet, romantic, just, perfect. The ring is beautiful. A 1 karat Tacori ring. Amazing.
We used to always talk about how we cant wait to plan things for our wedding. Can't wait to do thiiis and can't wait to do thaaat. It's going to be so weird actually legitimately PLANNING these things we've been talking and dreaming about.
I love you Frankie Nilon, and I cant wait to spend the rest of my life with you as your wife, starting August 21, 2011<3
