I was challenged by Vera from Lady and the Blog this week to share the first photos we ever shared on Facebook. We joined Facebook back in 2007. Our first photos that we shared were our engagement pictures from Hawaii.
John proposed on November 20th, 2007 on the Big Island of Hawaii at sunset. We held off telling anyone we were engaged for the rest of our trip so we could just savor the moment. It was so hard to keep it a secret but this was before the crazy world of social media had taken off so it was way easier than it would be now.
But yet we all managed to survive those days and sometimes I wonder if we were better off then or now. It is such a double edged sword. But I digress from the real reason for this post….our first Facebook photos way back in 2007!
These pics were taken before John proposed. Of course I had no idea what was about to happen. I thought my parents just wanted pictures of John and me at sunset..
Oh my gosh we look so young…happy but so young!
John proposed a little down the beach from where my parents were watching sunset. I thought he was just dragging me down the beach because he was tired of my parents after a few days and wanted a break for a few minutes. Did I mention I was completely clueless about what was to come.
I cried! oh my goodness I cried when John proposed. He was so sweet, romantic and wonderful when he got down on one knee to propose. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about that moment and how far we have come since then.
Engagement Beach as we call it is now one of our favorite places to visit on the Big Island. It is a bit of a rough ride to get to the beach but so worth it once you get there.
