It all started 4 years ago when I started my new job and met my fiancé, Josh. I can still remember the first time I was given the chance to wait on him at the counter and after he left I looked at my supervisor and said, “I am going to marry that man”. Little did I know it would really happen!!

Being with Josh is amazing. He is the most wonderful person you could ever meet and is so giving and caring. As I like to say he is a devoted “life-saver” as a Paramedic, Volunteer Fire Fighter and a Main Diver for the Search and Rescue Team in our area. He is constantly giving to everyone in our community and that is what made me fall head-over-heels for him.

July 9, 2011 was the day my life would change forever…

I was working at the bank till noon and then volunteering that evening at our local fair, as I do every year. Josh had asked me to come directly home after work because he had plans for us and promised to have me back in time to work at the fair. So I went home, changed and headed out the door with him. I had no idea where we were going but I did notice a small cooler in the back seat so I just assumed we were going for a nice picnic in the park in Springfield.

We puledl into the Springfield Marina where Josh proceeded to park and said he was going to go ask for directions to the park. Ha, I guessed it, a picnic in the park! Josh went inside the Marina office and was in there for a good amount of time so needless to say the wheels start turning in my mind and I no longer feel a picnic coming on.  He comes back to the Jeep and says, “Okay, let’s get changed” and I said, “YOU RENTED JET SKIS!!!!!”

Now let me back track a little here, our first date was supposed to be renting Jet Skis but the weather was not permitting that weekend we were free and we never got the chance to reschedule.  In a sense, were having what was meant to be our first date on this day and I was so excited! So now that I know what his surprise is he handed me a bathing suit he had purchased for today, a beach towel, a pair of sandals, sunglasses and even a hair tie for me. Now, do you understand what I mean when I say “he’s amazing?” We proceed to get our lesson on driving the Jet Ski and we were off buzzing around the lake for about 30 minutes before he found this very quiet, very secluded cove and shuts off the Jet Ski. As he turned around to face me he started to tell me how much he loves me and how happy he is with what we have together and how well we work as one. At this point I still had no idea what he was about to say because what we were saying to each other was nothing more than what we have discussed before and I felt as we were just having another amazing day together and sharing a moment.

As he turned back around and stated fishing around in the compartment for something that’s when I thought to myself  “No way, No way he is getting out a ring!” and  so he turned back around with the box in hand, opened it up and said, “Lacey Ann Boensel, Will You Marry Me?” Of course I said yes after I collected myself and hugged him and kissed him and I could not stop bouncing up and down and giggling and smiling!!!

In fact I’m still smiling…

And that was the best day of my life with the best man I could have ever dreamed of!
