On 12/23 my love proposed to me and totally shocked me!
We had a mini trip up north to a mountain town in NH. I booked the hotel as a surprise to him, with the jacuzzi in room etc. He planned a couple outdoorsy things for us to do, so I thought MAYBEEE this was it.
Well, nope. Nothing while we were there. Then we were on our way home yesterday and he said he wanted to stop and show me something in his hometown which we had talked about checking out before. Okay, fine. Well, we drove right by it and ended up at our “spot”.
We often go to his hometown to walk around. It’s a cute lakeside town with dirt roads. We walk over a bridge to a beach area with a dock. We only go there in the winter since it’s very secluded and pretty. We often sit on the dock and talk for hours with hot cocoa.
Anyways, we get to the beach and walk around. Then he goes “promise you won’t have a heart attack?” I go “huh??” Then down to one knee he goes, in the wet beach sand. He was adorable, tears and shaking and told me he wanted to be my protector forever and he couldn’t find a more perfect and beautiful person and then “will you marry me?”
What a perfect idea! I was so happy he chose that spot as our proposal spot. It’s such a sentimental and personal thing and was just US. I was so in love with that moment!!!!
