My name is Sindi and I'm 29 years old, almost 30 in January. My husband and I have been married for 3 years, but been together for 5. We met online about 5 1/2 years ago...yes, pretty cheesy, I know. We met on a silly website, but not so silly since I met my best friend on there. Anyways, we met online and talked on the phone for a month until we met. He asked to take me out a day after my birthday, January 8th, to celebrate it. Of course, I said yes. I thought we were just going to be friends. I just loved talking to him and getting to know this amazing guy. After we went on our first date, we didn't go a day without talking on the phone. We would even call each other around 6 pm to watch a movie together, over the phone. How cheesy is that? Cheesy, but I love it!
So let's skip a year and a half of dating...We traveled to Seattle for an awesome adventure in May 2011. We love to travel. We are both very adventurous and love to go wherever we can. So we are in Seattle for an awesome adventure. We went to the Space Needle and Pike Peak Market. It was a ton of fun and I loved it!
|proof we were there, haha!|
It was funny, cause I kind of knew something was up when he was acting anxious to go "somewhere." We left downtown Seattle to head to a "secret place," he said. We got to the parking lot of the Woodland Park Zoo. I was sooooo excited, or maybe it was cause I needed to go potty (yes, I was a nanny for 12 years so I will say potty instead of restroom or bathroom), but I was really excited. He knew I loved going to zoo's any where we traveled. I thought that's where we were going. Nope! He led me away from the zoo. I was so confused! Little did I know he had this planned for a few months. He led me to Woodland Rose Garden. We walked around and well, we didn't really see any roses. They hadn't bloomed yet. We did see some beautiful tulips though.
|No roses yet, just tulips|
We walked around and we still couldn't find any roses. I was really confused by now. We found a gazebo once we went around the garden. He said "let's go check it out." I was said, "Ok?" We got to the gazebo and all of a sudden he got on one knee. My heart started beating fast. I couldn't believe he was going to propose! He proposed and I said yes, after crying for 3 minutes and him asking me if that meant a yes. Duh, dummy! So I was an engaged woman. I was on cloud 9. We went to the store to buy some wine to celebrate (oh by the way, I am a fan of wine, just letting you know). The cashier said, "What a perfect day to get engaged! Not a cloud in the sky and that is rare here in Seattle." I took it as a good sign. The next day we went to the Space Needle and I still couldn't believe I was engaged.

So that's a little bit about me and my hubster. Wow, I can't believe you read the whole story! Stay tuned for the next post where I write about our short engagement and wedding day.
