As the sun was setting we grabbed a private spot on the sail boat and started our usual smooching. Henry seemed more emotional than usual, which made sense once he asked me to marry him. I told him yes, with a huge smile and tears in my eyes. (The tears were from the wind, of course.)
Henry nervously fished the ring out of his pocket. After the ring was on and I dried my eyes a bit, he waved to the captain, who paused the reggae to make the announcement to everyone on the boat. We were toasted with champagne (Henry had the bottle stashed in an ice chest before we left) and more reggae.
The rest of the sunset sail was full of smiles and congratulations. The mood was perfect as the full moon rose and the sky filled with stars. We danced and drank rum punch and began our plans for the ceremony...
I know we've been dating for a bazillion years but no time would feel more perfect. I'm so happy, guys!
Thanks to henrylyne for sharing his island again, and Maile for the photos!
