On the journey up Michael pulled out a blind fold and told me to put it over my eyes and then my sun glasses over the top of that so i def couldnt see and then also put my I-Pod in my ears so I couldnt hear!! An hour later with still a blind fold on Michael guided to the spot where there is a love swing beside the river maine and took my blind fold off and earphones out and was on one knee!! I cried and cried out of pure happiness that he asked me to marry him not because of the ring even though it is beautiful being asked to be his wife is the greatest honour of all!
