FC: Today I marry my best friend | Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage | Daniel & Jessica
1: Daniel bought the ring on Wednesday and originally planned on taking Jessica horseback riding up on the hills on Thursday. That plan flopped when he realized that the horses got out and were way back in the hills. Persistent Daniel thought of another plan. He asked if Jessica wanted to ride with him in his truck to go check cattle. Oblivious Jessica turned him down because she wanted to get all her homework finished that night, because her girlfriends from Visalia were coming to the coast for the weekend to visit. So, now it's Friday and they were going to meet the girls in Morro Bay. Jessica was all ready to go and waiting for Daniel to pick her up. He called her and said he needed to make one last trip on the hills before they had to go. He asked if she wanted to ride with him. She told him no, again, because she wanted him to hurry so that they could get on the road to see her friends. When he finally got to her house, she handed him a plate of pizza to eat on the way. He said, "Could you go get my hat out of your room?" She quickly ran to her room to get it. She came back and he was on one knee in her front doorway. She said, "Oh no! did you drop the pizza?" He patiently explained that he was just untucking his jeans from his boots (one of Jessica's pet peeves is when he leaves his jeans tucked inside his boots). She went to the fridge to grab him some water to go with his pizza, and he was still on one knee, but she didn't get it. He then said, "Wait, I'll trade you for the water." She still didn't understand, "You'll trade me what? He said. "I'll trade you the water for this..." and he held out the ring and proposed! :) | Engagement October 29, 2010
