From the email Emily Sue wrote her friends just after returning from Maui –
“Ok so I can’t believe I am writing this email to everyone! But here it goes- for those of you who did not know- Today Mr. RTW and I returned from our week long trip to Maui and as a complete surprise to me Mr. RTW proposed last Wednesday July the 27th 2005 while we were on our vacation!
I am engaged!!!!! It was THE MOST ROMANTIC EVENT OF MY LIFE!!!!!
We were headed toward East Maui on the “road to Hana” which is basically the jungle/rain forest part of the island where all the high cliffs and waterfalls are…. We pulled off the side of the road to explore an area where some great waterfalls were….After our hike into the area through bamboo and crossing streams we made it to the first 2 waterfalls and it was amazing!
Instead of spending pages of emails to tell this sweet story- To make a long story short- at the third waterfall that we climbed up (it was about a 35 foot one) at the top-with the waterfall all to our selves- Dustin popped the question!!!
I couldn’t believe my ears and I got so weak in the knees I thought I was going to fall off the waterfall completely! Of course I said yes and needless to say the rest of our trip we were on cloud nine 😉
Since this was such a shock and I am still trying to get used to just being engaged”
