Last time we ran our 14 Days of Valentine’s Day, my wife Eunice shared our love story.
This time, it’s my turn to share our engagement story!
Eunice and I visited Ireland for a summer vacation in August 2012. I was definitely super nervous, because I knew how I was going to ask her, but wasn’t sure how it was going to all play out!
We went to the Cliffs of Moher, a popular destination in the south west region of Ireland. Such a beautiful location with breathtaking views, that I just couldn’t think of a better place on earth to ask her to marry me.
We had walked for awhile along the cliffs, just taking in the views when I finally worked up the nerve. I was waiting for a lull in the traffic, because it’s definitely a popular destination for a lot of tourists and travelers. I didn’t want to do it in front of a lot of people. So I patiently waited and found my moment. I got down on one knee, and took her hand, kept it short and sweet, and asked “will you marry me?”
We’ve been married for over a year and two months now and we always laugh and smile about that moment. That night, we went to the pub with family and without any notice, we were serenaded by the band! It was a day/night we’ll never forget!
