He asked, I said yes!
I don’t even know where to begin. I sit, fingers poised over my keyboard, ready to share with you the story of one of the best days of my life.
The love of my life asked me to marry him last week, with all (ok not all, but a lot of) Indianapolis watching. Ben orchestrated this big ruse to propose to me during our DoItIndy Family segment.
Honestly, words are not enough. You’ll have to watch it for yourself below.
Considering we already had a wedding date set before this happened, and considering Ben has been telling me fore MONTHS he’s had a “plan,” I am shocked at how SURPRISED I was. The tears were real, folks. That’s been the most asked question, since so many knew of his plan and were able to see it play out; “Did you know it was coming?” Sure, I had my suspicions, but day of, there we so many small things that happened that made me think it WASN’T happening. For example, an important family member couldn’t be there. Also, I thought perhaps he would have worn something different…? I don’t say this to sound like a snarky girlfr—er, I mean fiancé, as I love his t-shirts and cardigan sweaters. I just thought he’d give it away with perhaps a button down?
So, yes. I was completely shocked. I couldn’t imagine a better way for my best friend to ask me to marry him. I’m so lucky, blessed, grateful, et cetera, et cetera to have found the one who my soul loves. Thank you for all the congrats all over social media. Let the wedding planning BEGIN (rather, continue)!!!!
