    My work friend, Taylor! She doesn't know any of my family or close friends, so I did not have to worry about her leaking the news to anyone else and feelings getting hurt!

    I didn't have the change to "share" the news. He had secretly recorded the entire thing and shared it on Facebook before I could even ask him not to.

    I got engaged about two years ago and my wedding date is next year. As I can recall the very first person I told about my engagement was my little sister and then my parents and then my fiance's parents and siblings.

    My FH asked me while we were staying at a beautiful cabin in the woods. I told him that I really wanted to keep it just our secret for the weekend. However, we went to breakfast at a local diner and I texted my sister asking her if she could keep a secret....then I sent her this picture. She called me back screaming and crying. I swore her to secrecy.
