- Wedding: April 2011
I love reading the proposal posts (def. in my top 5 favorite posts on here!!), but I never did post mine, because I had already been engaged a couple months when I found this site. So bear with me…I want my turn!
We were on vacation, and after breakfast he told me he wanted to show me something he had found while he had been out walking earlier (him and his friend had gone out to “talk to the cabin owner about firewood” while me and his friend’s FI made breakfast). So…me, being me, asked if I could stay in my pajamas for this walk (later he admitted he only agreed to this because he didn’t want me to be suspicious of anything!). While walking, he explained that he had found a little stream that joined up with the river, which emptied into the lake.
We found the spot and I looked around and said “that’s cool, babe” (cool, but…why are we walking down here right after breakfast??), while walking over to the water to get a closer look when he said “No silly, look down”. On the ground, he had written with rocks and sticks “Luisa, will you marry me?” (and I had almost walked right through this!!) and when I turned around he was kneeling with the ring!
It was super cute 🙂 The only crappy part was it was the beginning of the vacation and the ring was waaaay too big, yet I still wanted to wear it. So…I used some gauze and masking tape and wrapped it around the band to “resize” it. Hehe.
