As John walked up to my house, he picked up the mail from the box. He handed it to me, and to my surprise, I found an envelope from Travelocity with two tickets to Hawaii. Our five year anniversary was coming up and I was secretly hoping he would pop the question there. But in the beautiful Hawaiian sun, the days passed fast and nothing! John was acting so calm ( at that point I was thinking he is never going to pop the question).
On the day of our anniversary, he sent me to a nice spa. Later on, he took me out to dinner to this gorgeous restaurant, which he rented out for the night. Just as dessert hit the table, he took out a tiny box, got up, and I thought this was going to be it. He took my hand, pulled me up, told me he loved me, and then opened the box. “Happy Anniversary.” Inside the box there was a pair of gorgeous diamond earrings. We then kissed and I thanked him. I was so dissappointed and he could tell so when we were leaving he asked me, “Were you expecting something else?” I could see he was laughing inside and I was really mad at that point because he kept teasing me and I was just ready to go back to the hotel. He had other plans though.
He took me to the beach where there were candles everywhere and a blanket set up with roses around it. We sat down and watched the sun set. I was just starting to feel better and get over the whole non-proposal thing. Then all of a sudden he told me to look over at these two palm trees. I looked over and there was a sign made out of twinkling lights hanging between two palm trees. The sign said “I LOVE YOU. WILL YOU…. I turned around and saw him down on his knee holding a diamond ring and he said in such a sweet voice, “marry me?” I was in complete shock and it took me a while to say yes.
After a couple of hours of making out on the beach, we went inside. I just could not stop smiling and I kept looking at the ring on my finger. Finally as we went into our suite I saw all of my friends there and both our families. When they saw me they ran up to me and looked at my ring. I was so surprised that he got everyone I loved to be there. That night was just one surprise after another.
