Sascha asked me to be all his for all of eternity and this is how it all went down!!
First things first, I knew something was up because Sascha wanted to go out to dinner. Don't get me wrong, I love food you don't have to cook yourself just as much as the next person, but Sascha and I are not, and never have been the dinner date kind of couple, so I knew something was up. It also didn't help when Sascha handed me his phone to put in the address for the restaurant he then got a text from his best friend that said Good Luck tonight man!! (way to go Graham!) After eating at one of Sascha's favorite Japanese places, complete with all the white sauce we could eat, he took me down to the riverwalk.
We were walking around the riverwalk for a while, every time we stopped I could just feel my heart speed up. Finally we stopped by the water. I was facing towards the river and Sascha came up behind me and put his arms around me. He hold me tight while telling me about how glad he is that we are together, how much he loves me, how he couldn't imagine his life without me. He goes on to tell me that I am everything he has ever wanted in a person and that he wanted to spend the rest of forever with me. Sascha turned me around to face him, takes a step back, gets down on one knee, looks up and says, "Hold on, I have to tie my shoe". (I'm pretty sure I even saw him untie it in the car just so he could do it!)
After this point I don't know if I was too busy seeing red and being mad I let the punk trick me, or if I had just assumed it wasn't happening that night and stopped paying attention to detail, but what happened next is all a bit blurry in my memory. All I know is that about 15 minutes later I was screaming YES! and he was putting the most gorgeous ring I have ever seen on my finger. It didn't really hit me what had just happened until the car ride home. We had called the people who had needed to know, and updated facebook for everyone else, and then when the busyness faded and reality set in, Bam. I get to marry my best friend. I just looked over at Sascha, who had the biggest, goofiest, smile on his face, and my heart melted and the tears started to pour.
I am so lucky that he picked me. Sascha is my best friend and I still can't believe that I get to spend forever and then some with him.
So we started the night by going to eat Japanese food. Afterwards, I took her to the Riverwalk and we started to walk around. I was scared out of my mind to be completely honest. So we're walking around and talking and just enjoying each other's company when we stopped for a while. I saw the opprotunity and I took it. I turned her to face me, then I got on one knee....and tied my shoe. I got back up and we started walking again. So we decided to sit down on a swing and just look at the river and talk some more. I'm still scared out of my mind at this point. Like, I know she's gonna say yes, but I'm still scared. So we walk a little more and I finally got the courage to stop her, get down on my knee and ask her to marry me. Of course she said yes. Who wouldn't say yes to this? Hahaha (Can you tell which one of us is the writer?? haha!)
