Devin and I have been married for six years this Saturday. I can hardly believe it’s already been six years. We’re going to spend the day celebrating with Emily + Dave, and we couldn’t be happier about it!
I can still remember the day that Devin proposed like it was yesterday. It was a Friday. July 27th, 2007, to be exact. It was hot and I was wearing jean capris and a black tube top. (Random fact about myself: I remember major life events by what people were wearing. It’s weird.) Devin packed a picnic dinner and took us to Maumee Bay State Park where we enjoyed a meal full of my favorite treats on the beach. After dinner we sat on the beach a bit and then Devin said he had a present for me. He reached into his bag and pulled out a scrapbook. If you know my family, you know that albums and scrapbooks are a big deal. And this was the first one that Devin had ever made! The book displayed many of our wonderful memories together, lots of inside jokes and sayings. It was adorable and I will treasure it forever. But the best part of the book is the last page. Devin had written a little note ending in, “and that reminds me of one more thing…” At this point, he reached into his bag again and this time he pulls out a ring! I really don’t even remember what we said after that… but I said yes! We enjoyed the rest of the evening walking along the beach and watching the sun set over the water. And calling all of our closest friends and relatives (obviously!). It was a perfect evening. One I will never forget.
