A year ago yesterday..

October 22, 2012, I was lead by Sam to the Oskarshamn Arena. I was under the impression we would be meeting our friends Evan & Maddison to skate. When we got there Sam said something came up and our friends and they wouldn't be able to make it.  Sam and I went on the ice and skated for about 5 minutes.

Every time we had gone skating in the past I like when Sam pulls me 'really fast' around the ice.  Sam was doing this when he turned around and stopped both of us center ice. He dropped down to one knee.  He pulled out a ring & asked me to marry him.  I said yes, dropped both hockey sticks I was holding and we had a very happy kiss as I put on my ring! A few minutes later he asked me "You did say yes, right?" Apparently I was so shocked I must have whispered it, but it was written all over my face. ❤

We skated off the ice to the bench. That is when Sam told me that the whole thing had been recorded. Evan was actually hiding in a box the whole time with a video camera & Frederic (Sam's Oskarshamn Coach) was also recording it on Sam's phone. Now I can relive that moment forever.

We tried to get ahold of our family members immediately! To tell them the news! The time change can make that a little difficult but we got to talk to everyone on  Skype.  Except my brother who was in India at the time.... He found out over Facebook message! Oops  

I cannot believe it has been a whole year! The absolute shortest, longest year ever! Wedding planning took most of my time this summer & a lot of my moms too!  Every day now is one closer to our wedding! Sam and I are both so excited & more in love than ever. I only have 234 more days to wait! Not that I'm counting ;)
