Making my "happy place" happier!
On November 7th, 2014 I headed out to work for the local parks dept, like any other day. My boss gave my partner and I instructions to head to the beach to pick up something that had washed ashore. It's was a beautiful day, so we quickly accepted. This wasn't just any beach. This was "my" beach. When I decided to take charge of my life and become healthier, I would walk the two mile trail that ran alongside the water. 7 years and 65 pounds lost, and this is still the spot I run when I need to relax or refocus. So after driving to the end of the trail, my partner and I headed on foot to the cottage marking the end of the trail and the beginning of the ocean. As I rounded the cottage, there he was. My boyfriend Dan was there with my two dogs, dressed in matching tuxedos. There, in front of my parents (who were hidden behind the cottage as well), with my dogs, my best friend asked me to marry him. He somehow found a way to make my "happy place" even happier.
