Words can't explain how excited I am to announce that Michelle (my wonderful assistant and BF) is ENGAGED!!! It happened last week and I am so excited! We have already begun planning and it is going to be a wonderful day that really showcases the love that John and Michelle share with one another.
Michelle had plans to meet up with her sister and another girlfriend for drinks at Vivace. There was a knock on the door and when she opened the door, John was there with a newspaper tucked under his arm. That's not totally unusual because Michelle loves to read USA Today (in her eyes it's totally the People magazine of newspapers) and he'll pick one up for her every now and then and drop it off.
So she sees him and thinks he just came by to say "hi" and drop off the paper. He opens the paper up to show her and it says "Today's the big day! Will Michelle Payne Say Yes?" She started SCREAMING and shrieking and then he got down on one knee and asked if she would marry him and of course she said YES! She asked him if her family knew and then he told her that her sister Kristen was waiting outside the door to capture it all on camera! She came in and they had champagne and took a million photos while she just tried to take it all in ...
Her sister and John suggested that they go down to Vivace to celebrate. As she walked into Vivace John's mom immediately comes up to her and as she was hugging her, she saw all of her friends,her friends hubbies, his friends, and her family, it was AMAZING. He had organized for everyone to be there to celebrate! What a proposal!
Michelle and John are most looking forward to waking up next to each other everyday and eventually starting a family!
Congrats Michelle and John, I can't wait for your big day!!
