Today is exciting in so many ways:
1. I leave for VEGAS tonight!
2. I get to share another part of the Matt and Pre Love Story (better known as #MattLovesPre amongst my friends and family. Also the official instagram hashtag.)
Last week when I shared the story of “How I Met My Husband,” I got so many wonderful comments. Thank you all for your sweet words! Today, you get the next installment: The Proposal.
For the majority of our relationship, I would say that I did most of the planning. And when I say most, I mean all. That being said you can imagine the insane amount of joy I felt when Matt executed a beautiful and perfectly planned proposal.
The story of our proposal weekend starts in Detroit, Michigan. We traveled to the Mitten to attend the wedding of Matt’s cousin. We had planned our trip so that we could spend the weekend in the Detroit area for the wedding and then drive up to Northern Michigan to spend the remainder of the week with Matt’s mom. The wedding was an absolute blast! We had the most incredible time with Matt’s family.
We headed up to Northern Michigan on Sunday and by the time we arrived on Sunday evening, Matt was seriously sick. Possibly the worst cold I have ever seen him come down with. This was unfortunate because he had planned to take his mom out for a massage the next day and to spend some quality mother/son time with her.
The next morning came and he woke up feeling slightly better so off he went with his mom. Matt’s sisters and I ran some errands, including a strategically planned trip to the nail salon where I enjoyed a quick color change [I had recently gotten a manicure]….
