I remember the day I got engaged very well. We took a weekend getaway to a romantic tourist spot not to far from the town we lived. It had kind of been "our spot" for a long time and so it was the perfect setting. We were in front of Niagara Falls (Canadian side) and in the beautiful garden area, my husband asked a nearby person if he could take a photo of the two of us. Then, he surprised me by getting down on one knee and presented a gorgeous ring - perfect for me, and asked if I would say yes to sharing our lives together. It was perfect and magical and still makes me smile! The next thing we did was call friends and family to tell them the news. I don't think many were surprised since we'd been together for 5 years prior, but their support and love meant a lot to us. Not everyone is lucky enough to have amazing support and if you've just been told that your friend (or family member) is engaged, there are some ways to support them to show your love.
