We met while I was still in school and doing an internship, and it was probably four months before he ever really talked to me! I actually thought that he disliked me, and I thought it didn't make sense that he would dislike me for no reason because he was such a nice guy! Some of my coworkers tipped me off that Ryan did like me and we exchanged numbers before my last day. We started out sending each other a bunch of text messages and eventually went out on our first date. And of course our first trip as a couple was in 2005 to Disney! We stayed in WL and had the best time. That was when Ryan realized that Disney wasn't just for kids! We went back in 2008 and stayed at AKL which was awesome and we just got back from our stay at the Grand Floridian and the best Disney trip yet! I think this last trip Ryan realized that he loved Disney almost as much as I do! The proposal~ June 13, 2009 On our first day at Disney Ryan had planned for us to have dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table. We had an awesome meal, I love the Castle! After we finished our main meal our waiter came to the table with a covered plate and said: "Your prince has ordered a special dessert for you", and lifted the lid to reveal a glass slipper on a bed of rose petals. He placed the plate on the table and I saw in the glass slipper was my beautiful ring on a rosebud! Now, I may write about this calmly now, but basically as soon as I saw the waiter with the plate I knew it was going to happen and started crying. Then Ryan started to tear up a little too. He got down on his knee - in front of the whole restaurant - he was so nervous with everyone watching, I was too! - and asked me to marry him, of course I said yes! And everyone clapped and congratulated us! This is kind of what it looked like (recreated by me later that night while Ryan went searching for our luggage) and on my hand: Afterwards the photopass photographer took some more pics of us, we had a champagne toast and they brought us out the glass slipper desserts. These were soo good! We had a great night in Magic Kingdom, and eventually called everyone. They were all really excited! It was really so perfect since I love Disney so much and I love the Magic Kingdom most of all. I'm also so glad to actually have pictures of the proposal, luckily I did a photopass share this year! I'll post some of those pics when I get the cd. I also loved that it happened in the beginning of the trip and it was just us, so we had all week to enjoy being engaged before coming home to the millions of questions!
