Hey Guess What!

This is kind of the post I've been building up to. But I wanted to do it right and in order. But guys... I have an announcement....

Yep. It's legit. And official. And I'm loving it!!!!!!

Adam proposed to me while we were in Arizona. He totally surprised me (and kind of lied to me) and it was amazing. I kept asking him when we were driving down if he was going to propose soon or talk to my parents or what he was thinking. But, like a good boy to make it special, he kept telling me he was too busy to think about it and to just relax. I was getting kind of upset about it because I felt like he was never going to propose. I mean... I had already found my dress!! (see the post of the finding of the dress here. and i found it early because my mom almost made me so we wanted to look early, yadda yadda....) But he waited until Valentine's Day and popped the question. He started asking me questions at dinner about all the things we had done together. Then we walked around the temple and he showed me this picture slideshow that he had made for me. I was of course really teary eyed and emotional during the whole thing. (he told me later he did it to prep up my emotions, clever kid) I thought it was just a present for Valentine's Day so I wasn't really thinking anything of it. Then he said, "Well you have been asking me a lot of questions this weekend. And the truth is I have been lying to you. I already talked to your parents." That's when I knew what was happening. I started crying more and he got down and proposed to me. It was so wonderful and perfect and I loved all of it. I am so grateful for Adam. He really knows how to speak to me and makes me understand things. He also is always so loving and forgiving. He makes me feel so special and makes me love myself because he loves me. He is perfect for me and I am so glad I found him. I do feel bad cause I was kind of a brat at first... but hopefully he forgives me by now and just loves me. Cause I really love him!!

We are getting married on MAY 1st in the Mesa, Arizona Temple. We are then having open houses in California and Illinois. So start posting your addresses so I can send invitations!!!!

Grandma Robinson

Over Christmas break, we found out that Adam's grandma had peacefully passed away. I had the opportunity to get to know her for a little and was so impressed with her love and hospitality that she showed everyone. When I would go over there with Adam for dinner, she would always be interested in asking me questions instead of telling all the stories about herself. She would tell me some of the amazing things that she has done and it was fun to see her reminisce. You could just tell that she loved everyone and cared about them just like they were her own children. I was able to attend her funeral with Adam and his family and I was amazed at what I learned about this wonderful woman. She was able to do a lot of things in her life, and she once told me she felt like her life was a fairy tale. I felt so blessed to be around such an amazing family. It was at that moment that I knew I loved Adam, as weird as that sounds. Not just because Adam is a wonderful and fantastic guy, but because of his family. I could see where he came from and where he was going and I just admired all of them so much. I am so grateful for his grandma for her great example to her posterity and to me.
