We’re engaged! I’ve waited a long time to say that…..(ry will tell you)
It was the perfect day, the Canucks won Game 4 of Round 3, and the sun started peaking out. Ry said if it was a nice day, I could choose whatever I wanted to do (I’ve been bugging him to go rollerblading, but we forgot our blades at our moms). We headed to Bridges Restaurant on Granville Island, and picked out some of my favourite dishes - Mussels, Calamari, and Shrimp & Scallop Fajitas.
Walked around the shops, took some pictures and headed to the seawall. We were parked across the street from his sisters house, so I kept suggesting we go visit them. As we were leaving the seawall, he suggested we keep driving around. This didn’t surprise me, because Ry loves driving, and I wouldn’t even be surprised if we went all the way to Kelowna.
We ended up at one of his projects in North Van, and on our way back to his sisters, he took a detour to Cypress Mountain. I woke up from my nap and we were at the view point of Cypress. It was almost Sunset, and the city looked so gorgeous, I suggested we take a picture. Ry placed the camera on the back of his car, after I kept telling him we should just ask a stranger to take our photo. Little did I know, he was taking a video.
So there I was posing for a photo (like usual) and Ry runs up beside me, poses for a picture, then gets down on his knee. I had to do a double take and whisper “what are you doing???” Then he asks me to marry him. No speech, just plain and simple, exactly what I’ve been wanting/waiting to hear. Of course I say yes and I’m already crying!
