A/N: Some of you are very perceptive, asking how Edward knew the diary only knew him as "Edward" if he hadn't read it. All I can say is he just assumed. I mean, what are the chances Bella would go through the whole thing calling him "Edward Cullen." :P

I said yes!
It was perfect, and totally unexpected. I panicked when I saw that Edward had packed up my books. I think our conversation went something like this:
Me (calling to him from our home office): Did you pack all my books?
E: (yells) Yeah.
Me: (really panicking) All of them?
E: Hey, can you come here for a sec?
So, I drop what I'm doing (which was packing up his medical journals) and make my way to the living room.
He had lit a dozen candles, placing them in a heart-shaped circle, and in the middle of the circle was you.
"Edward," I whispered. "What is this?"
"Take a look," he said, so I moved forward and stepped over the candles. I dropped to my knees and picked up the book, just barely able to read the entry. You know, the one he made yesterday?
Of course, by now, I'm a big sobbing mess, and he comes to me with a ring on the tip of his finger. A DIAMOND RING. Just for me.
Needless to say, packing was forgotten the remainder of the night.
We just barely finished boxing the rest of our stuff this morning before the movers arrived a little bit ago. Good thing they weren't early! ;)
I can't wait to start our new life together!
P.S. This is my last entry. I'm writing this as we drive north out of Tulsa. Thank you for being there for me. And also, to my daughter, who one day will be reading this – it's OK if you make the first move. ;)
Story End Notes: So, there ya have it...49 updates in 49 days. That was kind of fun. :)
Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
Also, thanks again to my betas/pre-readers Dinx, Acinad and Vampire_Extraordinaire, who all convinced me to go ahead and post this little thing anyway after I wrote it up on a whim.
Jury's still out on an EPOV, but just in case, if you want to read it, you might leave the story on alerts. It will be posted as an extra.
Thanks again! You guys rock!
