How we got engaged

Joe and I were in Gulf Shores on a beautiful Sunday in March. Joe decided that we would go walk on the beach before we head home. He drove us to a place near the pass. When we parked he started fumbling around in the trunk. I didn't think much of it at the time. We headed out toward the beach. We came to  a fork in the board walk that went in two different directions, but would eventually meet up on the same stretch of beach. He said "why don't you go that way and I'll go this way and we will meet up in the middle?" I said "Really?!?!? I WANT TO WALK WITH YOU!" It wasn't until later that I realized that I had messed up his plan. We walked down to the beach to some rocks. He said "walk out onto those rocks and I'll take some pictures of you." That's what I did. When I got out to the end he took some pictures. When I came back he grabbed me in a bear hug and told me how much he loves me. I could feel him shaking. When we turned and took a few steps I saw a heart drawn in the sand with an open ring box in the middle. At that moment he dropped down on one knee. "I said "Are You For Real?" He looked into my eyes with tears in his and said "Will You?" I dropped to my knees and fell into his arms. I wanted to say YESSSS! The first thing that came out of my mouth was "Did You Ask My Daddy?" Joe Said "I talked to him months ago." We sat and cried for a few minutes and then I found happiness I never knew existed! I knew then that I was going to marry my best friend and the man of my dreams!
