Hey there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok sorry. This is Caroline again!!!!!!!! Well anyway here's the story you have all been waiting for!!!!!!! (me too for that matter!!!! LOL, you'll get it once you read it! So get going!!! Stop reading the intro!)
It all started on a dark and stormy night. No seriously!!!! I ran in the rain down our driveway to get the mail and I get this super cool invitation!! It says, "Caroline, you have been invited to an 1800's ball on June 4." I'm like cool! I get to dress up!!!! I keep reading and it says Jason invited me!! That got me going. So on June 4th, we both arrive at the ball! (BTW he surprised me and had dyed his hair! Lol, he has always talked about red hair! He loves it.)
It was so pretty! They took an old wagon and used it as the table!! Lovely.
We saw our friends Katrina and Joel.
"Hey, Katrina!" I said. "How are you doing this fine night?" We talked for a little bit while Jason went to talk with Joel.
"Hey Man!" Jason said.
After talking a little bit, Jason came over to me!
"Miss Caroline, may I have this dance?"
"Why, of course, Mr. Jason!"
"You look especially lovely tonight dear," Jason said.
"Why thank you! You look just as handsome!" I replied.
"We should go sit in the garden," he said. "Sure! But I think the host, Abby, is about to speak." I said.
"Hello everybody!!" Abby said.
"Welcome to the annual 1800's ball! Everyone looks just lovely! We have dancing, food, and a photo booth! That would be up here so come up here and get your picture taken!"
Jason and I decided to do it first!
I love it! So pretty!
After that, we went to the garden and were talking. "It's such a lovely night tonight," I said.
All of a sudden, that fidgetiness was back! The same one from the date! I started to get a little nervous. "It sure is." He said. "You know, there has been something I've been wanting to ask you."
"Yes??" I questioned.
Suddenly, he dropped down on one knee and produced a ring! "Caroline Elizabeth Noller, will you marry me? "
"What??? Oh, my word! Jason!"
"Jason Alexander Woodman, I would be honored to be your wife."
"Oh, Jason!!!! I don't believe you!!!! Oh...."
"Thank you, Caroline! Oh man, this is the best day of my life!" Jason cried.
"You are the light of my life Jason," I said.
"Oh no, YOU are the SUN in my life," Jason replied.
He let go and fumbled around in his jacket pocket and grabbed something. Then he took his coat off and grabbed something around his neck.
"These necklaces are for us, Caroline. I have a lock and you have the key. You unlocked my heart and I fell in love with you. This is just a little reminder I had made up." "Oh thank you so much, Jason! Oh, thank you! I just don't know what to say!!" Tears were streaming down my face now out of joy.
Meanwhile, Katrina had just watched the whole thing. She ran around to the front and told everyone:
"Guys!!! Can I please have your attention! Ok, I have an announcement!"
"Jason just proposed to Caroline so let's all congratulate them! Here they come now!!!"
"CONGRATULATIONS JASON AND CAROLINE!!!!!!!!!!!" Everyone yelled.
"Oh thank you so much, everyone!!! We are SO excited!!!!!!" I said.
"Congratulations guys!" Abby said. "This will be talked about for years to come!"
"Thank you so much!" Jason said.
(gentle slow music starts now.)
We danced and danced to the slow music. It was all like a dream to me. I thought I was going to wake up any minute and it would all be over. But then Jason stepped on my toes and I'm like oh no dream!!!
It was so romantic.
"I'll love you forever Jason Alexander Woodman," I said.
"I will love YOU forever Caroline Elizabeth Abbot."
And then we kissed.
