- Wedding: September 2012
Well last night was the night! It had been a super long day.We were flying home to the Midwest from our families on the East coast. We had been visiting for the holidays, and I was a little down that the proposal had not happened while we were home. We had been up since 3am EST, flown home, done all of our housekeeping stuff we had neglected for 2 weeks and finally we could relax. I went to bed really early because I have to work today. My FI said he would follow shortly. About 10 min after I had gotten into bed, he came in and asked if I would come out and look at something he had working on. It turned out it was on this game he had been playing (minecraft). In it, you can build whatever you want. He had built a roller coaster that he wanted me to look at. So we “ride” the roller coaster around the map, ending up on a really tall tower. He told me to look down, and when I did, the words “will you marry me” were spelled out in light on the ground of the map! I obviously said yes!! It was so cute because this proposal was just so him! He really wanted to surprise me and he did for sure! I thought that at the earliest it would be on my birthday next Sunday. I also love that he did it this way, because we will always have his proposal saved! He said it took him over 10 hours to complete 🙂 I will post ring pictures when I get home from work if I can make my camera cooperate!!
