From the second we got onto the plane it was a dream come true. We landed in Tahiti and took a small plane to Bora Bora. We were both speechless as we looked out on turquoise water. There are no words to describe how beautiful it was. I was in the most romantic place with the man of my dreams. It felt like heaven. When we got to our room at the Four Seasons I was overcome with emotions. I felt so blessed to be there I didn't know if I should cry, laugh, or scream with excitement. So we did the next best thing and jumped into the water. The water is so clear you could see to the floor of the ocean and all the fish swimming around you, including stingrays that come right up to you.

Eddie is a great travel planner and had the whole seven days planned with adventurous and relaxing things to do. After our swim we had couples massage and a coconut milk bath on a secluded deck overlooking the ocean. Later that night was our dinner on the beach. . .that's when my mind started playing tricks on me.

When we had dinner on the beach I thought for sure he was going to propose. It was the perfect setting. But boy did he throw me for a loop! After our conversation I was a little disappointed and thought there was no way he was going to propose and that I just needed to get it out of my head. Easier said than done! Dinner was yummy and the view was to die for. When we got back to the room Eddie had trails of rose petals all over the room with a big heart on the bed, chocolate covered strawberries, and champagne. Again I thought, "Oh god, here it comes."

But I was wrong again!
