Ramon and I have been dating since June 16, 2001. We are true high school sweethearts!! After 4 years of dating, I started getting the "I want to get married" itch. Year after year I sworn to myself that this is it! This is the year he will pop the question. Well, to my surprise, it never happened. Until.....
Thursday, December 25th, 2008! and here's how it went.
Ramon and I were on our way to midnight mass (Christmas eve) and running a little behind schedule. When we arrived it was about 5 minutes till midnight. I was freaking out that we were going to be late. Ramon on the other hand was totally chilled. Not trippen at all. I thought to myself that it was a little odd since he is a huge stickler about time. Anyways, we found parking and started speed walking to the church. As we approached the front Ramon asked me to turn around. I annoyingly did and to my surprise the moment had arrived. Exactly the strike of midnight Ramon got on one knee and opened a box showcasing my ring. And out came the magic words "Jaryce, will you marry me?" I was jumping up and down. We kissed and EVERYONE was cheering for us and congratulating us on our engagement as they were rushing in the church to find a seat.
Not too long ago I told him about my dream proposal. How I wanted it to be on Christmas day and in front of my WHOLE family. That would've have been ideal for me. But when I think about it, I am so happy he proposed the way he did. Nothing is better than asking me on God's front steps, just him and I. It was so intimate and memorable. I wouldn't trade that feeling at that very moment for the world!
Here are a few pics of my bling and with my husband-to-be!!
