A ROCK on the Rock!

My boyfriend and I met while both working on a cruise ship and had the most romantic first few months together. We were so lucky to be able to work and travel at the same time and saw so many wonderful places (while getting paid!!). Our first date was during a Mediterranean Cruise when the ship made a stop at The Rock of Gibraltar. We had such an amazing day exploring the caves, the “monkeys den” and the gorgeous town at the foot of The Rock.
After 6 months at sea, the ship returned to the Med and we decided to “re-live” or first date together in Gibraltar.
As we were wandering along the top of The Rock and looking out to sea, reminiscing about the months we had spent together, Will stopped suddenly and dropped to the ground. I thought he had twisted his ankle and I knelt to the ground next to him!! He said “stand up silly, you’re ruining it!!” to me, and I suddenly realized what he was doing!!! He had a ring in his hand and was asking me to marry him! I of course said YES!
I cannot think of a more wonderful way to start our lives together. We are getting married in the Fall and I am just so happy to have found the man of my dreams.
