Ryan and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for 7 years! A few days before Ryan proposed, he asked if I wanted to go to dinner that week to celebrate another school year starting up. A few hours before we were planning to meet for our reservation, he totally changed the plans and location…so again, I was clueless. After we finished eating at Brenners, we walked outside to checkout the patio area since we had never been there before, and as I turned the corner…I saw a trail of rose petals leading up to a gazebo with pictures, candles, a letter, and our favorite song playing. I couldn’t help but say “oh my gosh, is this real?!” It was the most perfect way to start our forever together! We can’t wait for January!
