It was nice, but it was different, â ???? Martin shared. â € œWe were on a small fishing boat in the Bahamas. It was just the two of us and luckily a couple on another boat nearby told us that they took a picture of us while Erik was proposing.

She continued, â € œGod thank you they were at this point in the middle of the ocean â ???? the snapshot later took my breath away. Erik just said, “I can’t wait to spend the rest of eternity with you.” And we were engaged. Again.â ????
