I'm Future Mrs. Smith

I'm so happy and excited about our BIG news, I don't even know where to begin! 

I'll start with Friday night. Ryan and I went to eat at my little brother's restaurant. He's the sous chef at 801 Fish. I immediately ordered a glass of prosecco and Ryan got a yellow cocktail - I can't remember the name, but it was good. We sat at the chef's table and we were able to watch my brother cook all of our food for us. My brother sent out the most delicious hush puppies I've ever eaten in my life. When I go to a place that has shrimp and grits on the menu I always order it. My brother cooked some up for us, as a small dish, so we could taste it and still order a fish for dinner. I'm not just saying this because he's my brother, it was the best shrimp and grits I've ever tasted. Then I had salmon for my main dish and Ryan had the curry halibut that was created by my brother for the menu. I'm not a foodie like my brother, so it's hard for me to explain how fresh and delicious the dinner was, but I will say that it was amazing. We ended the meal with a dish of salted caramel ice cream. 

When we got home Ryan said "go put on your pjs, I'm going to take Mrs. out!" There was nothing unusual about this, because that is our typical nightly routine. We spend a lot of time on our back porch --- we drink our morning coffee out there, we watch the sunset, and we watch the stars sparkle in the clear dark sky. After I put on my pjs I headed to the kitchen to get a drink of water and I noticed that all the lights were off outside. A little odd. I walked to the back door and opened it, and all of sudden the back porch was lit up with romantic string lights, there were red roses, I could hear music playing, and I saw a table with champagne and flutes...Ryan was down on his knee and he asked me to marry him! I'll never ever forget the love I saw in his eyes. When he stood up we hugged and kissed for a long time. I remember the feeling that I didn't want to let him go and I wanted time to stand still. We sat on the back porch smiling for a long time and listened to the playlist that he had made for us. We starred at the beautiful diamond ring that was sparkling on my finger (I've been starring at it all weekend long) and we dreamed about our wedding day and our forever together. 

This is the song he had playing when I opened the door - when he was down on one knee. He swept me off my feet the night I met him, and he continues to love me in a way I never knew I needed. 

The ring was custom made, and it is perfect. 

I can't wait to be his Mrs. Smith, and to have his babies, and grow old with him. I like to tell him he's my 'romantic comedy' that all my friends knew I dreamed about before we met. 

The Mrs. Smith photography was taken by my sister Haley! 

I've always said this is my song for him. He had it on the playlist Friday night and it will definitely be on our wedding playlist. 

All weekend long we've been calling each other fiance, because it just feels so darn good! 

We are planning an October wedding on his parent's beautiful land. 

Wen and Ryan
