So out of the top 10 best days of my life this is definitely number 2! (Number 1 has yet to come...but it will be here April 3!) Tonight Dave asked me to marry him. It was the coolest thing ever!! I don't think I have smiled like that or been this happy in years! It was the greatest moment ever! Right when he asked me i felt instant peace and knew that this was the man I was meant to spend the rest of my life with. Dave is my best friend and now I get him for eternity!! So let's start from the beginning.....
I got home (to Dave's) tonight and was so excited to see him! He looked so hot, but he always does, ok that's beside the point. :) So we were standing in the kitchen and I was cooking and he was like I should just ask you to marry me. I said, you totally should! I didn't think he was serious because this is a nightly conversation between the 2 of us.
He told me to call my dad because he needed to talk to him. So I called my Dad, chatted with him for a minute and then handed the phone to Dave. He said "Kirk, I am just about to ask your daughter to marry me so I wanted to ask your permission." Of course my Dad said yes.
Dave then came and stood in front of me and told me all the reasons that he loves me, and that I'm his best friend and he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He then pulled out my ring and asked me to marry him!! It was so awesome! I screamed when I looked down and saw the ring. I was shaking so bad. I kissed him and said yes and he put my ring on. Greatest moment of my life thus far! I knew at that instant that I has just made the best decision of my life. It was pretty dang cool!
It's the neatest thing when you get to look into the eyes of the person you get to spend your life with. The person you want to spend your life with. I can't describe how I felt in that moment. In that moment everything changed. It became real. He really is mine!! I'm the luckiest girl in the world! I can't believe that I get to be with the most amazing man I have ever known!
So anyway.....you want to know the big day?! April 3, 2009 in the Draper Utah Temple. Pretty cool huh! Not only do I get to marry him forever, I get to get married in a fairytale castle like a princess! Nice! Oh, and the best part....I get to have the best last name ever!!! Jill Strasburg!
I love you Davey boy! Thanks for being my best friend, the man of my dreams (literally), and the greatest guy I have ever known. You mean more to me than anything in this world and I'm so excited that you're the person I get to spend the rest of my life with. I couldn't ask for any better! I love you!
