There we are, sitting there, Nina’s parents and me. We’re having dinner together when Nina’s mom said,”So, Julian, why isn’t Nina here?”
I told them that Nina is the love of my life and I took them out to ask their permission to ask her to marry me. They responded so enthusiastically. When they asked when I was planning to do it, I said New Year’s Eve or New Year’s Day. I wasn’t sure.
So, Nina and I are driving along Cape Cod the day before New Year’s Eve. The sun was setting, and because I didn’t have much of a plan, I was frantically looking for a pretty beach before it was too dark. It was a day or two earlier than I originally planned, but I couldn’t wait any longer. I had to ask her.
Just as the sun was setting, we found a beautiful beach. She went to the water and I went to get my camera. When the camera was set, I went over to Nina and asked if she would marry me. To my luck, she said yes! Except it was more like, “What? Oh my gosh! YES! Of course! Oh my gosh? What? Oh my gosh!” She she repeated those words about 1,000 times.
I left for Cape Cod with a girlfriend and I came back with a fiancé. I couldn’t be happier.adventure, beach, cape cod, nantucket, nina, ocean, photography, proposal, road trip, travel
