On Saturday, March 1st, 2014-the love of my life proposed to me.
He visited me where I’m currently stationed in Virginia Beach, VA. His series of flights getting here had multiple delays and he ended up being about 8 hours late for the weekend we had planned together-but I didn’t care, I was still so happy to finally get some time with him after so long. When he got here, he had to wait to check into his hotel so he walked me down to the beach just after sunset. We were walking and laughing hand in hand and he was talking to me and telling me how much he had missed me and how he was sure that I was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. The one he wanted to be with forever. The one he wanted a family with. And after saying all of these sweet and perfect things, he said “So I have a request. You can say yes or no, but it’s entirely up to you….
Cassandra Lynn Davis, will you marry me?”
And I swear I almost couldn’t get the word out. I started crying and all that mess…I finally said yes and then sort of tackle hugged him and that was that.
He pulled me up and put the ring on my finger and I can’t say I’ve ever been happier (“:
Kody knows me so well…

You know I kind of always thought of myself as this hectic mess of a person who didn’t know what to really do with her life. I’ve loved a million different things and tried a million different hobbies. I find myself being creative but lost half of the time. It wasn’t until Kody Ross became my best friend in college that I started to find my way. We’ve been through hell and back together-losing a child, losing each other multiple times, but we’ve always found each other again. We’ve broken ourselves apart and built each other back up in incredible ways. I wouldn’t be where I am now without him. He helped me find a place in the world-helped me discover a career that I love. I wouldn’t be in the Navy if it weren’t for him. I don’t know where I’d be.
And the best part is that we KNOW that. We know that the path to our love has been hellish and awful sometimes. We know we’ve hurt each other and others. But we ended up so much stronger in the end. It doesn’t mean I don’t have regrets-I definitely have those-but I think it’s beautiful that after all of that hell, we’ve proven everyone wrong and we’re still here. Together. We’ve made it so far and now we’ll make it to the end together-no doubt.
I guess I just feel like sharing how grateful I am to have met Kody when I was thirteen. Sitting in the Commons in our old high school and just smiling and being kind while he played his guitar.
Our adventure together didn’t start until years later, but he’s always been so kind and wonderful to me.

I adore you, Kody.
I just want you to know how absolutely grateful I am to have you in my life.
