Elegant Wedding in Durham NC.
The Proposal: It was early afternoon Christmas 2017. Jason fixed some of my favorites for breakfast- pancakes, bacon, and mimosas! Leading up to Christmas, he kept saying he didn't get me anything. Which was fine, because I still got him a few gifts. After he cleaned up the kitchen he asked if I was ready to open presents. After he opened his gifts from me, he told me to wait in the bedroom. I'm thinking, what is going on?! I come back into the living room and it’s full of nicely wrapped boxes. The first box consisted of 3 books, "What to Expect When You're Expecting", "The Knot: Wedding Planner", and "The Knot" magazine. I immediately yelled out, "We pregnant?! Whose pregnant?!". He just laughed and passed me the next gift. I was confused. The next gift was an elephant ring holder, which had a fake ring on it. I was still confused about these gifts. Jason is very black and white, no grey, so I was taking the gifts for what they were; books and a trinket lol. Then, Jason reached into a drawer, pulled out a red box, and got on one knee. While I was crying and losing my breath, Jason asked, "Would you give me the honor of being my wife and spend the rest of your life with me?". I said, "Yes".
