I’m gettin’ hitched!! I honestly feel like the most special gal in the world! Brooke took this picture of Pat and I when we got home and the picture on the right was about 10 seconds before he proposed!
Pat proposed to me on Sunday at Laudholm Farm in Wells. We were going to take blog photos of my new Spiritual Gangster sweatshirt and Ilse Jacobsen boots…I obviously had no idea he was proposing or I may have worn something different hahaha! I didn’t make it easy for him either. We pulled into Laudholm and they ask for a donation to park and walk around. I thought $5 was steep to take like 4 blog photos, so I told him to turn around and head to the beach instead…oops! Pat said at that point he was trying to figure out how to get me back to Laudholm because I was ruining his plan. We went to the beach at Drake’s Island and it was SO windy, so we snapped a few pictures in the woods there. Pat told me all of the pictures looked awful and he really thought he could take better one’s at Laudholm. I thought he was being a little pushy haha but back we went to the farm! He also reminded me that I spend more than $5 on shipping whenever my online shopping packages come, he got me there! Pat was taking photos of me looking over the hill at the ocean and when I turned around he was down on one knee *sob* I had no idea because I heard him snapping photos…he said he really had to multi-task! I will never forget how I felt in that moment and I’m glad it was just the two of us to share it!
I think what felt the most special, was knowing all the work he put into it! Designing the ring with his parents, asking my dad, telling my mom and sister and waiting for the right time. It’s been so exciting, sharing it with my family, friends and clients! Everyone has given us so many well wishes and congratulations and I couldn’t feel more loved! Seven years was worth the wait, and while the commitment was there in my heart, it feels really cool to be wearing his ring! This has been my favorite Christmas to date, and I hope you all have the Merriest Christmas and a Happy New Year! – Whit
