ENGAGED: My Stepson handed me a ring!
So I asked on Instagram [@samjhobbs] what the next blog post should be and the engagement was the most requested!! So here it is.
Engaged! I truly cannot believe it!
I had always hoped to get married one day and I knew from the second I met him that he was the one.....BUT I was not emotionally ready for such a perfect proposal.
We are going to Mexico later this month and I knew it was in his plans to ask while we were there. It sounded picture-perfect, but what they did was a million times better.
Instead, they plotted secretly with my family to ask me during our early Christmas in November, which is my next blog.
My family is very close and extremely emotional. Everyone was crying, including myself.
My stepson and now fiance got down on one knee and my stepson said, "Samantha will you marry us?", and rushed into my arms to hug me.
That was enough to make me and my entire family sob for a solid 10 minutes.
His reasoning behind asking me at home instead of doing a fancy proposal on the beach was based on the fact that he thought once he would ask me, the first thing I would want to do is call my family and tell them. So he told them the best place and time to do this would be at our home with everyone to share this amazing moment. And guess what?
He was absolutely right!
Marriage is certainly not about any fancy proposals [contrary to popular belief in 2019].
Marriage is about L-O-V-E and man, do I love my boys!
Yes, being a stepmom comes with its challenges, but moments like these make it all worth it.

Now that you are sobbing too, here's one last one from another angle
Through this wonderful experience, I have come to the conclusion that the wedding pictures will need to be BEFORE the actual wedding for them to be somewhat presentable because we are all cry babies. The end.
