"Do you want to know a secret?"

You know that friend I mentioned in this post?

His name is Shawn.

He was just a friend when we planted those tulips, we had maybe know each other for about a month. He kept coming to camp, so I had to think of things to do together. :) 
I learned that day he had worked for a landscaper during high school, so he knew more about planting bulbs then I did.

Not too long after that he had a talk with my father, and he came to camp the next week with a huge bouquet of flowers and asked, 

"Will you be my girlfriend?"

I said yes. :) 

But he's not my boyfriend anymore.

This Saturday he came to camp and asked me to go for a walk with him.

We didn't get very far, we were next to a little gazebo on the camp property, and Shawn asked if it needed to be repainted, so of course I started looking at it, saying something about how maybe it did, but with other projects at camp we might not have time. I turned back to look at him, and his face got serious as he said "I have something else to ask you."

He got down on one knee, and pulled out a ring.

"Bethany, will you marry me?"

By the way, I said yes.

(More of the story coming soon)
