About 3 years ago I met an amazing girl named Betsy. Believe it or not it was at the pool in the apartment complex I was living in. After we got to know each other through a mutual friend we became just friends. She was currently dating someone else and so was I. Months went by and our friendship continued to grow. However, sometimes we would go periods of time without talking. Though I always remember passing her while driving through the parking lot and would at least wave hello.
Late last summer we planned a visit to catch up. During the next few weeks we both knew the timing was right to see if there was something more. By October we are seeing each other regularly and were officially dating by mid November 2010. It seems the Lord had brought us together.
During the course of 10 months we fell in love.
At some point she told me she had only been to Disney World once and barely remembered the trip since she was only 4 years old. So in July I planned an early fall vacation to Florida for the both us and bought her an engagement ring.
Last Saturday September 24th, 2011, we boarded a plane to Orlando, Florida. When we got there we went straight to the place I planned to propose. It was the beach area at the Grand Floridian Resort. I got down on one knee proposed and she said yes! We then went to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World for the rest of Saturday afternoon. The rest of the trip we relaxed, shopped, went to SeaWorld, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It was an absolute magnificent trip we will always remember!
Our wedding plans are for late next spring!
