Marc surprised me on our 3 year anniversary while vacationing on the island of Maui. To celebrate our anniversary, I planned various activities throughout the day.
11AM: Visit the Iao Needle in the Iao Valley
1PM: Wine tasting at Tedeschi Winery
6PM Watch a show at the Maui Theatre, Ulalena
8PM: Anniversary dinner at Roy's Bar & Grill in Kahana
After dinner, Marc suggested that we walk along the beach to walk off the food we ate. I agreed, not knowing what was about to happen.
As we strolled along the Kaanapali shoreline, Marc walked me to a spot in front of 3 palm trees. With the ring in his left hand, Marc turned to me and held both of my hands.
Marc said: "I know we had our good days and bad and sometimes you drive me crazy but I brought you here to ask you to be my wife." Marc got down on one knee and asked "Will you marry me?"
I was speechless.
Marc said: "You didn't answer my question."
I replied: "Oh! Yes, sweetheart I will marry you."
I lifted Marc up from his knees and hugged him. We sealed the deal with a kiss.
The Ring: It was dark on the shoreline so I didn't get to see the ring on my finger until after we walked back to the resort.
When we got back to the villa, we ended the night with a bottle of Dom Perignon (Vintage 1995) and fresh strawberries.
The proposal was perfect! I felt like the luckiest girl in the world.
