How Happy Are You?

Keith and I were introduced the summer of 2006 by a mutual friend, Larry. We were dating a little over 2 years. The day before my 25th birthday he told me not to make any plans because he planned on surprising me and taking me somewhere special. About 15 minutes before he arrived Larry's girlfriend, Taryrn, called and asked what our plans were for the day. I told her I had no idea and she and I agreed we would all hang out later. Keith picked me up from my house and I noticed we were arriving at a park that he and I enjoy often. We walked, talked and enjoyed each other for a while in the gardens. I then noticed Larry and Taryrn walking in the park, and since they also visit often I thought nothing of it. The four of us posed for pics and eventually made our way to the swings. Keith started talking about what beautiful weather we had and eventually asked me how happy I was. I told him "on a scale from 1-25, I'm about 24.75", he smiled and stopped the swing. He told me he would love to give me "the other .25" and he got down on one knee and placed the ring on my hand. He asked me to be his wife and I said "YES"! Our friends that I thought unexpectedly ran into us, came running our way with a camera and taking pics. I finally realized it was planned the whole time. I find it such a blessing for them to be part of our engagement story! It's a memory that will last a lifetime!
