Done and Done

It's finally official, Trevor and I are engaged! 
About a month ago when Trevor and I were talking about marriage I told him he shouldn't propose any way too cheesy or clich√©; like on valentines day, or anywhere near a Temple. I just felt like it had been done by so many other people and I wanted something a little more original. Well maybe he took that to mean that that was the only way to propose, because that is exactly what he did. 
He proved me a fool because it turned out to be really special and incredibly sweet. 
We had tickets to go through the Draper Temple Open House on Valentines Day. Everything was turning out great, his family was able to come down for it and my parents were going to come. I totally suspected something was going to happen that weekend, but definitely not in the Temple because I told him I would say no if he did.  As we were walking through we got close to the sealing rooms and I got really excited because I had already scheduled us to be married in the Draper Temple so I knew what room we were going to be sealed in. I was anxious to be able to go through that room with Trevor. As we were walking through there was an Usher standing next to the alter and he caught eye contact with us and motioned for us to come over. He started telling us about the mirrors and their symbolism representing eternity, he said some other very sweet things. I ended up telling him that we were scheduled to be sealed in that very room in June. As he was expressing his congratulations Trevor says "Yeah, there's just only one thing left to do..." That's when he got down on his knee, pulled out a ring I had never seen before and asked me to marry him.
Well I didn't say No but I did say "Are you kidding me!"  But then I said yes. It was really neat that our families got to be there, I wouldn't have had it any other way. In all reality he was quite brilliant because by proposing in a way I told him not to it actually was the only way I was truly surprised.
I feel very blessed that we found each other. I love him dearly and I am excited and anxious to start our life together.

This is a picture of my ring, Trevor picked it out all by himself and I don't think he could have done any better! I absolutely love it!
