A Magical Engagement

I met Adam some time in January 2010. (He can actually name the exact date and day.) Odd for a guy...I know. But some how he remembers. I just remember it was a Tuesday night. We were playing pool at a pool hall, and I had only gone out that night to meet up with some old high school friends I hadn't seen in a few years. One of the high school friends I was meeting up with was named Chris. I think Chris was actually thinking he could try and have a shot to be with me, but I only saw him as a friend. That night on my way driving to this pool hall that I had never been to before, I got lost. Of course leave it to me to get lost. So I call up my friend Chris and while he was telling me how to get there, he told me that he invited his friend Adam and said to me, "Don't worry, he's harmless." I thought, ok whatever that means. (I'm pretty shy when it comes to meeting new people.) Anyways, I finally arrive at the pool hall, and there was Chris with his friend Adam. Adam would not stop talking to me all night. He always seemed to sit next to me. And always tried to find something to talk to me about. I remember thinking, "I think this guy likes me..but he's probably like every other guy who ends up being a jerk." So I really wasn't that interested except for being friends. As soon as the night was ending, Adam asked me, "Hey I go bowling every Wednesday night with a couple of friends, would you like to join? It will be really fun." Since I had fun that night, I figured, Why not? So I told him I'd be there. The next night I meet up at the bowling alley with him and ever since then, we practically hung out every night. After a couple weeks of bowling with him, I really wanted his number but I felt like that was the guys move. As I left to go home that night from bowling, Adam stops me and asks for my number. I thought to myself, "Oh you can definately have my number. Thank goodness he asked!!" I started thinking to myself, "He hasn't done any jerk moves yet. He seems like a great guy..I think Im beginning to get interested in him." I ended up asking him out on February 8th, 2010, the day before his birthday. Of course he said yes. Then the year came to an end. December rolled around and he was going away with his family to Canada. I wasnt going to have my boyfriend home for Christmas and I wasn't going to have him for new years. I was so sad. When he left for the two weeks, I actually cried a lot. I missed him so much. He had me check on his cat while he was away so I had the key to his house. I ended up grabbing a sweater of his to take home with me so that I could wear it and feel like he was there hugging me. We would chat on the webcam whenever possible. Thats when I realized I loved this man. And I saw he was realizing he couldn't live with out me. Apparently on his ride back home from Canada, he talked to his parents about wanting to marry me and they were all for it. We went and looked at rings and I showed him different styles I liked. Eventually I knew he had bought one, and was so excited to know when he would finally ask. It was February 12, 2011 when we went on a trip to Orlando with my parents to visit my grandparents. We went to the Magic Kingdom and all day went by. Soon it was night time and we were with my parents watching the new show they have with all the pictures displaying on Cinderellas Castle. Fire works were going off. All of a sudden I turn around to face Adam and I didn't see him. I look down and there he is on one knee asking me to marry him. He said, "Baby will you make my dreams come true?" I told him yes and smiled and we kissed while fire works were going off all around us. It was like a magical fairtale that I was living. My Dad got it all on video. (It was hard to see anything since it was night time.) You could hear my Mom crying in joy and happiness for us. It was the best night of my life. I had always dreamed of getting proposed to in front of Cinderellas Castle. And it ACTUALLY HAPPENED! I couldn't believe it! Best night and moment of my life. Even my grandparents got to see me get engaged. I liked that my family was there to see the surprise. Adam and I are now happily married. We got married July 1, 2011. <3 I love him!! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
