In Thickness & In Health..

Friday night, March 31, 2017, Naples, FL - everything changed and the theme was forever. 

Dallas [boyfriend of 4 years] proposed to me at my favorite restaurant, in my favorite place, in front of my favorite people. A warm Florida night with rain in the forecast remained perfectly clear with a beautiful sunset. Thank you, Universe, for cooperating. 

What wasn't cooperating was my stomach upon arrival at the restaurant. We parked and I began to b-line it inside to get a table since they don't take reservations and I was going to eat the next person I saw. Dallas diverted my path and led me to the docks while I argued that I was at risk of dying from hunger. In true fashion, slightly overdramatic and thinking with my stomach. #ThickAppetite

At the risk of almost jeopardizing his strategic and perfectly planned proposal, Dallas got me to "the spot", got my attention, and got down on one knee. I don't even remember him opening the ring box - all I remember is his face and me grabbing it... to kiss him, not eat him, of course. 

It was the perfect night, followed by the perfect day spent on the water and Keewaydin Island. Wedding details to follow. You've been warned.
