Last October 27, 2018, my life changed.
Last October 27, we flew to Coron.
Last October 27, we went to Sophia’s Garden Resort.
Last October 27, I ate bagnet for lunch.
Last October 27, I took some pictures and selfies.
Last October 27, we climbed 700+ steps to the peak of Mt. Tapyas.
Last October 27, I laughed with my friends, held Jude’s hands and whispered, ‘ayoko na. pagod na ko’ on the way to the top while sweating like a pig.
Last October 27, Jude patiently and continuously wiped all my sweat and fixed my hair.
Last October 27, we went back to the resort in a van.
Last October 27, It was a normal day and I was happy lady then.
Until I wasn’t.
Perfect by Ed Sheeran was playing when we arrived at the resort. I was singing ” just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own. and in your eyes you’re holding mine”. As I was singing the lyrics, I can hear familiar voices playing in the background while we were on a path with lighted hearts! ❤ ❤ ❤
And then I realized, it was a video of the people who are close and dear to me telling me to ‘SAY YES, JANNA’. ❤
Then there’s this perfect gazebo, a ‘MARRY ME’ plastered right smack in the middle of all our memories, full of our pictures, full of our time together, full of laughter, fights, pain and an overwhelming love for each other. ❤
My Jude thought about everything. He printed about 300 pictures, displayed it mixed with the fairy lights, roses and heart shaped candles. He even shipped everything from Manila and hired a videographer for the perfect proposal SDE. Perfect is an understatement.
He told me things I cannot even remember. He probably told me he loved me. 😀 I honestly cannot remember. I spaced out. I was speechless, stunned and overwhelmed.
He got down on one knee, asked me to be his wife and there’s no other word in the universe I’d reply with than a big fat, screaming YES. ❤
This is scary. This is exciting. This is beautiful.
I know how sacred and precious marriage is. We both are not perfect. We have flaws, we fight, we change but there are also moments that you teach me what unconditional love is. It will be messy at times but there will be perfect moments too. And I’m willing to share each and every moment with you.
You are my silver lining.
You are my Derek. You are my Ross. You are my Ted. You are my Jack.
You are everything good in life. You are my greatest blessing.
You are everything dear to me. You are my best friend.
I love you.
Last October 27, I said my easiest ‘YES’.
Last October 27, I said yes to the man of my dreams.
Last October 27, I said yes to a lifetime with my person.
Last October 27, I got engaged.
Last October 27, I’m not only a happy lady but I became my happiest.
Last October 27, my heart is full and whole.
❤ ❤ ❤
