On our 5th Christmas together my love, daughter and I had a normal Christmas morning of opening presents. Prior to this, he has apologized for lack of present for me but I have more coming in the mail. Of course, I tell him it's fine I'm not worried about it.

We continue our morning and make our way to my parents' house, where all my siblings and their families gather together. As we are finishing up presents with them, my sister and her husband announced they have one more special present for my mom, and we all need to gather in the living room. As we are waiting for this big surprise for my "mom", my guy comes up to me and pulls me in front of everyone, gives a small speech and gets down on one knee. My heart is pounding as I'm writing this out, reliving this perfect moment! He asked me to marry him in front of my whole family on Christmas! It was one of the best and most perfect moments of my life. No one knew but my little sister and her husband, so everyone else was just as surprised and started yelling and cheering in excitement.

By far the best Christmas present l could ever dream of. He did it the best way possible and I can't wait to marry my best friend!
