ENGAGED!!!

I, Ashley Vincent, am officially engaged to Devon Gibby!! He proposed earlier tonight and everything was just so perfect! He had told me on Sunday that we were going to a piano recital for his friend, and I totally believed him. Tonight when it was time for him to pick me up, his roommate came to the door and said he was taking me somewhere and had to blindfold me. I new then that he would probably propose, but prior to that I had no idea! So we first went to the movie theater where we first met, and everything was staged perfectly. The same people were there and they pretended like we were going to see the same movie--the other people proceeded to pretend to go to the movie and Dev took me to the next place. We then went to the first place we officially hung out and the same people were there too. We played the same game we had played that night and reenacted everything, even the conversation. Next he took me to JcW's where we went to eat on our first date; following that we went to Thanksgiving Point where we went and the same couple that was on our first date was there, so everything was reenacted exactly like it had been. After that we went to the place where we first kissed. Then he took me to the canyon and there was a blanket by the river with flowers and a couple of candles. ( oh and the whole time we were in the car we were listening to a cd he had made with songs that had special meaning to both of us). When we got there we sat and talked and he told me why he wanted to marry me and proposed! And of course I said "YES!" Everything was absolutely perfect and so well planned. I'm so grateful for Devon and am absolutely so excited to marry him; I couldn't think of anyone better that I would want to spend the rest of my life and forever with. We are getting married May 8th in the Bountiful temple! Pictures coming ASAP.
