Remember that 'girl from WA' and 'boy from ID'? I wrote about it here >>> A True Story.
On April 19th, it was our 1 year anniversary of meeting! I knew Garrett had a gift for me that was coming that day, but didn't know what. As the day progressed and I didn't receive my 'mysterious gift' in the mail or otherwise, I began to wonder what could it be?!
My family wanted to take a walk around the neighborhood to get a little fresh air and exercise. Honestly, I didn't want to go. I was feeling tired and didn't want to do much. They insisted that I come and said I would feel better after I took a walk and got some fresh air. I gave in to their request and as we started walking they said, "Hey, maybe your gift will be waiting when we get back!" This made me excited to finish the walk, in hopes I would FINALLY know what that 'mysterious gift' was!
Halfway through our walk, Kali wanted to stop by a little park on the way to take a few pictures. As we were walking down the trail, I saw someone in the bushes heading towards me with a huge smile on his face!! I ran towards my man and gave him a big hug! I couldn't believe he was here! I thought he had to work that day, but apparently not ;)
He then proceeded to get down on one knee! At that point, I knew what was coming next and couldn't believe it was finally happening! Of course, I started crying...
"I love you, Maggie. Will you marry me?!"
To which I replied...."YES!" He let out a "WOOHOO!" and threw the ring box backwards! Haha
We are so, so happy to be engaged and are looking forward to being Mr. and Mrs. Johnson!!
Btw, a late summer wedding is being planned :)
