The Ballad of Jay-B and Fiancé Knowles

It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. After four days in Montauk and one day back at work, Justin and I set out on a bike ride along the Hudson River last Sunday evening. The plan was to go for a spin, hang out for a bit in one of the parks by the water, and then ride to din. We posted up on a grassy area and read and talked for a bit. Then we decided to get up and reposition ourselves to better see the sunset. (We’re really into sunsets these days.) I stood, but Justin didn’t… Instead he kneeled on one knee… and POPPED THE QUESTION!!! I was stunned. My heart started pounding and time seemed to stand still. (So cheesy I know but true.) I said “Oh My God” about 20 thousand times and then asked Justin to repeat his proposal. Again I replied “Oh My God.” “Is that a yes?” he asked. And of course I said, “YES.” And then he asked should we go to our party? Again I was shocked. He had arranged for a big family dinner (our parents and siblings, our nephew and niece and my grandpa all included). It was the perfect combo of an intimate private proposal and a larger-scale family celebration. I’m so excited to officially be family with my man.


P.S. Here’s a picture of us right after the proposal - 

P.P.S. Re: the title of this post – Justin has taken to calling me his Fiancé Knowles. And it just so happens that Justin’s fam calls him JB. (His middle name is Blake.)
