fRidAy aUGusT 1, 2008They say the reward is great for those who posses patience and mine has finally come. Although I knew the wait wouldn't be much longer I didn't expect it would make it's arrival Friday night. Tyrone was very adamant that we go on a hike Friday after work. I should have expected something was up because he barely wants to move after he's been working his butt off all week. I had been dying to hike all summer long so I was more than ready to go no matter how exhausted I was too. We started up Bell's Canyon to find that there is a lake located just about 10-15 min up very steep kick your butt before you get to the top stairs. It was beautiful to find. We trekked along about an hour later and after much much whining and grunting from my end we came to a huge water fall that came out of no where. My suspicion started when we finally got to the falls and Tyrone turned around to take my hand and had that look in his eyes. Either he was deliriously tired or he was about to propose. I was quickly distracted by the beauty of the water falling straight from the sky and wanting to take pictures of it that I let the thought quickly escape my mind that I could be getting engaged very soon. After a few shots Tyrone wrapped his utterly sexy arms around me and began telling me how much he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. He got down on one knee and pulled out what is now my favorite piece of jewelry of all time and asked me to marry him. It was finally the moment I had been daydreaming of for almost two years and even longer. I am a silly girl in that sense and having been in this position before with not so much certainty and love, I started crying because I finally knew what it meant to feel like to have a wonderful-strong-gorgeous-funny-spiritual-silly-hot man say he wants to spend every moment with you. I happily said "yes!"
