The Story of Christina + Gavin

 THE PROPOSAL

AFTER LEARNING WE WERE HEADED TO OAHU, GAVIN INDICATED THERE WAS A NICE BEACH THAT HAD A GREAT VIEW OF THE SUNSET.”

WE HAD ORIGINALLY PLANNED A TRIP TO DISNEYWORLD (HELLO MICKEY!) AND UNIVERSAL STUDIOS (HARRY POTTER!) IN EARLY SEPTEMBER OF 2017 BUT MOTHER NATURE HAD OTHER PLANS. A WEEK BEFORE WE WERE SET TO LEAVE WE ENDED UP CANCELLING OUR TRIP DUE TO HURRICANE IRMA. GAVIN KNEW CHRISTINA WAS UPSET (BYE, BYE MICKEY AND HARRY) SO HE SUGGESTED WE GO TO HONOLULU, HAWAII THAT NOVEMBER INSTEAD (WOOHOO! VACATION BACK ON!).

AFTER LEARNING WE WERE HEADED TO OAHU, GAVIN INDICATED THERE WAS A NICE BEACH THAT HAD A GREAT VIEW OF THE SUNSET (THAT SHOULD’VE BEEN CHRISTINA’S FIRST TIP OFF). WE DECIDED TO START OUR DAY OFF WITH A QUICK HIKE BUT WAS TOLD THE TRAIL WAS CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION (DARN!), SO WE DECIDED TO DRIVE TO HANAUMA BAY INSTEAD – IT WAS ALSO CLOSED (BOO!). OBVIOUSLY THERE WERE MANY, MANY HOURS BEFORE THE SUN WAS SCHEDULED TO SET SO GAVIN SUGGESTED WE HIT UP SOME SCENIC LOOKOUTS ALONG THE WAY. A MULTITUDE OF LOOKOUTS LATER WE FINALLY REACHED LANIKAI BEACH! WE ENJOYED A LOVELY STROLL DOWN THE LONG STRETCH OF BEACH AND WAS COUNTING DOWN THE MINUTES UNTIL SUNSET. GAVIN INSISTED WE STAY AT THE END OF THE BEACH (WHY? CHRISTINA ASKED. THIS IS A NICE SPOT TO VIEW THE SUNSET, HE SAID). MINUTES TICK BY AND NOOOOO SUNSET! IT WAS TOO CLOUDY! (UGHHHHHH!) BY NOW CHRISTINA WAS PRETTY ANNOYED, HER DAY WASN’T GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN AT ALL. TO TOP IT OFF, GAVIN KEPT WALKING BACK AND FORTH AND DOING THIS WEIRD THING WITH HIS EYES (IT WAS ANNOYING CHRISTINA!). FINALLY HE INSISTED WE TAKE A SELFIE AND ALL CHRISTINA COULD HEAR WAS THIS SHUFFLING BEHIND HER. SHE WAS JUST ABOUT TO TELL HIM THAT THE SELFIE STICK WAS IN THE FRONT POCKET OF HIS BACKPACK WHEN LO AND BEHOLD, SHE TURNS AROUND AND THERE HE IS ON BENDED KNEE WITH A RING! DESPITE THE CLOUDY WEATHER AND THE MANY HICCUPS IT TURNED OUT TO BE A MEMORABLE PROPOSAL.
