He told me the big surprise :)

As some of you may remember, I used to post a lot about my boyfriend while he was in army basic training and sending me letters. In his letters he always talked about a big surprise and question that he had for me. I would always ask him in letters what it was and on the phone but he wouldn't tell me. Well this past weekend I flew out to Oklahoma to see him and watch him graduate as an official U.S. Army soldier. After the first day I got to see him, he had to be back at his barracks. He ended up texting me that night and we talked for a while. I kept bugging him about the surprise and he eventually told me! My friends and his mom were right..he wants to ask to marry me! I was completely shocked because even though I had a feeling that's what the surprise was, it was nice hearing it from him. That next night he was able to stay at the hotel with me and as we were falling asleep I asked him more about it and he said it was something he had been thinking of since before he left and he thought a lot about it while he was away. He said he'll have to really save up. I had to leave on Monday to come back to Florida and he's still in Oklahoma going to school for his specific job in the army. He calls and texts every day and he's said that I'll officially hear the surprise soon :) I'm really excited and I can't wait. I knew he's always really loved me but I think now that we're apart, he realizes all over again just how much he loves me. Every other text he sends says I love you or other sweet things. I'm not sure how my parents will react to this surprise, but I know i"m really excited for it :)

I knew it! Congratulations. I'm sure you're still in cloud nine even now. I'm happy for you. I hope you fasten your seatbelt because this is the start of the rest of your life (or lives together). I wish that it is a happy one.

Thank you :) Deep down I knew it too but it was still a surprise when he actually told me what it was. I'm still really happy and excited about it. I think things will work out. I've been able to talk to him a lot now that he's out of basic training and he says he only wants to do the 3 years he's currently signed up for. Before, he was thinking about staying in longer but now he's changed his mind because of me. I told him to do what he wants and that I don't want to hold him back from what he wants, but he just told me that what he wants is to be with me. I'm kind of relieved now that he won't be staying longer. Once these years pass I think things will get somewhat easier for us :)
