It was my (Krystle's) 30th birthday. Alphil had planned a day full of surprises for me.
When I woke up, he gave me a happy birthday note with a key and told me to hang on to the key because I would need it later. Before we went for lunch, he took me to Crescent Beach. We have "our log" - which is where we had our first kiss, so I knew when we got to the beach we were heading there. As we got closer I saw items on and around the log and I thought somebody else had taken our log and I was so disappointed. As we walked even closer though I recognized the blanket thrown over the log - it was one that Alphil and I had bought together. Confused, I asked him how our blanket got there and he just told me to look closer. On the other side of our log was a beautiful picnic set up and roses. The picnic box was locked - which is when I got to use the key. I opened the box and saw a number of items that were sentimental for us - and the bright blue Birks box. I immediately burst into tears (like, ugly crying) and started flailing saying "Omygosh omygosh it's happening!" Poor Alphil barely had a chance to get on his knees.
He gave a beautiful short speech (most of which I did not hear because I was crying so hard) and put a gorgeous ring on my finger.
"Wait... you said yes right?" he asked me.
