Omar proposed Memorial Day weekend May 23, 2015 in my apartment in Atlanta. We had been in a long distance relationship for almost a year, and he had come down to visit. I was completely shocked by the proposal that weekend! It was great because I love surprises! I knew he would be proposing soon, as we had been talking about getting married. He held a firm conviction to not propose before he dated a calendar year,and our one year anniversary was in June. I respected that conviction, and had put any thought of him proposing before our one year anniversary completely out of my mind. Strangely enough, the day before he proposed the thought entered my mind, “I wonder if…” But, I quickly vanquished the thought. One, I didn’t want to have false expectations and knew he was figuring all of that out. Second, he is very methodical and I was convinced it would not happen before the year mark. Thus, my mind was clear and carefree that weekend. So when Omar went to the car to “get something,” I had no thought that everything was about to change. He came through the threshold of my door with this funny look on his face, then he dropped on one knee and proposed. I was speechless and overwhelmed. It was wonderful! It was exhilarating for both of us, and to know he had recorded it all on ring cam was both exciting and embarrassing. I did not know he was recording it, but I am so happy he did!! This is a treasured memory and I am so glad we will have his video to enjoy for years to come!
