That is the phrase I have said to Mike a lot over the last week. Poor guy...does he really know what he has signed up for?!?!
Well he officially signed up for it last Sunday when he got on one knee and asked me share the rest of my life with him. I was in complete shock but said YES before he could finish asking me.
Mike has been planning this proposal for the last 6 months and did a great job of playing "dumb". He was successful in getting the ring through security all the way to Europe. Sunday morning we were getting ready to head into Munich for Oktoberfest with his brother and sister in-law. Before we left, Mike and I walked up the hill to an old fort that overlooked the surrounding villages. It was a gorgeous view and the weather was perfect. I had no clue what was about to happen because I was convinced he would not propose in Europe (and I was in a slightly pissy mood because we were running late).
Mike handed me his ipod and told me to watch this video he made for me. It was a sweet video of all our pictures over the last year and a half. There was music playing all during the video and at the end were the lyrics to the song...THAT MIKE WROTE! My sweet boyfriend wrote a song and played it on the piano.
When I looked up, he was on one knee with the ring box open. He said some really nice things that I don't remember (b/c I was in shock and shaking). After I said yes and started hugging him, the church bells started going off. It was totally not planned but it was so awesome!!!!!
Having so many great pictures of the proposal, thanks to his brother, means the world to me. I am so grateful for every picture and have loved looking through them (all 98 of them).
After a week of just being engaged and enjoying our vacation, we are back home and have started the planning process. Let the fun begin!
