I’m off the list! As you know, I had my suspicions that he was planning something for this weekend 😀
My long-version proposal story is here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/113-has-left-the-list-rose-garden-proposal-d?
The short version:
This morning we watched the sunrise from the mountain near our house – well, missed it actaully, we were on the wrong side! But still beautiful to see our city shrouded in mist 🙂
After that, he drove us down across the lake and we saw some hot air balloons getting ready to fly, so we stopped and walked around. There was ice on the grass, so I walked out a heart pattern in the grass for him 🙂
We walked across the road for a picnic breakfast at the nearby rose garden. We walked around, enjoying the sunshine – it was still -4 degrees! – and he got his new camera out and said he’d like to take some pics. We walked around a kind of roundabout in the garden and he said an acrostic poem he’d written that spelled out “will you marry me”. Then he said “Put more simply…” got down on one knee, pulled out a TARDIS ring box, and said “alsgirl, will you marry me?” and I said “yes, yes of course!”
He’d even managed to smuggle in a bottle of champagne and glasses! We took a couple of pics and enjoyed a delicious brekky in the beautiful garden 🙂
