Lauren and Deon
Lauren and Deon[three_fifth] [dropcap color=”rosy”]M[/dropcap]y mother moved to Florida USA 8 years ago and because of financial reasons I could not visit the USA and she could not visit SA. We constantly call and message each other and really miss each other alot.
I obviously live here in SA where I met my fiance and have been together for almost 4 years.
Anyway my boyfriend knew how important it was for me to have my mom around for my engagement one day because I told him how much my mom has missed out on in my life so it would be amazing to have her around for that special day, so he planned it that we went on holiday to visit my mom and I had no clue he was planning on asking me, in fact he seemed like the kinda guy that would take forever and was quiet happy in his comfort zone – so I had no idea it was coming, but in all honesty I was also very happy where we were in our relationship that I wouldnt have minded waiting a little longer.
So we saved up for 2 years to go to America and what a holiday it turned out to be – Firstly it was the first time in 8 years that I saw my mom her home in person and saw how she lived and where she worked, it was so great, secondly to see the amazing country of America was unbelievable then to top the cherry on the cake my amazing boyfriend asked me to marry him at little restuarant on Miami beach USA!!!!
I nearly died he was so sweet and romantic – he put the ring in the bill when the bill came and knowing me as well as he does I asked to check the bill and when I opened it the ring lay there ontoop of the bill…………….
I cried my eyes out like a little baby and my mom knew the whole time that he was gona ask me there and she was so happy to have been able to be with me during the most special and important time of my life.
I still cant believe Im engaged to the sweetest guy on earth – he travelled all the way across the world to ask me to marry him so that I could be with my mom
He selflessly left all his family (and they are extremely close, they see each other like all the time) to take me to go to america to get engaged so my mom could share that moment with us……………….
