We had only been dating 8 months (but I knew I wanted to marry him.. like.. when my friend showed me a picture of him before i met him. haha) it was just a couple of days before he went to Afghanistan. He got us this really nice condo on the beach for the weekend and everything was so perfect but, naturally, I was sad to say goodbye at the end of the weekend.  On the last day there we went on this super (I mean  MILES & MILES) long walk where he FINALLY got on one knee and asked if I would marry him.  this is totally abbreviated. one day I will write the whole story out. it was so great. one of my favorite days of my life!
