Luckiest Girl in the World

As most of you know, I am engaged. Ah it seems so weird saying that! I have never in my life been happier. Nate and I have not been dating for very long but I think I knew after the very first date that he was something special and someone I needed to hang on to. Life has been complete bliss with him and I have just been having so much fun. The Proposal: For  months I have been wanting him to come to California with my family and me. He told me that he really couldn't afford it and that it would be too hard to get work off. I tried really hard to be understanding but I wanted more than anything for him to come! I kept telling him about flight deals and kept getting curious to why he kept spending money on me if he couldn't afford the trip. Finally it came time to go to California and he was not coming with me. My family and I went to the beach the first night and started walking down the boardwalk when someone grabbed me from behind. Yep it was Nate, well at least I hope it was because I was crying so hard I couldn't really tell. He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I cried some more and practically knocked him over as I jumped into his arms. I said, "Of course!" Then he spent the next day at Disneyland (my very favorite place) with me and my family and we had so much fun. In my sorority we do a candle passing ceremony so you can't tell anyone until the ceremony about your engagement. That was torture! I live at the house! So every time I would get there I would put my ring in its case and play it off like Nate and I weren't even thinking about getting married. I even had a formal that I had to keep my mouth shut through. So finally on Monday night, almost a week after he actually proposed, I got to tell all of my best friends the news. Everyone was screaming and crying and I was crying and screaming! It was quite the event. Then Nate and I told everyone the top 10 reasons we love each other and here were mine: 1. He makes me laugh, really hard, all of the time 2. He is so strong and solid in life 3. He has such a good heart 4. We never get bored together 5. He is smart 6. Holy crap Handsome 7. Super easy going 8. He lives to make me happy 9. He keeps me sane and can calm me down when my world is crumbling 10. He is the most friendly person and loves anyone and everyone. We have yet to decide on a date but I promise I am trying really hard to figure that out! I love him so much and I can't wait to start my life with him!
