- Wedding: November 2010
Okay ladies here is the “Proposal Story” I know …finally lol.
Well Saturday, Dec. 19th was our anniversary. It also turned out to be the day that the massive snow storm coated the east coast (22 inches fell here)! We were unable to go out and he decided that he would brave the elements and come over to cook me breakfast. By the time he arrived it was 4pm so it was a very late breakfast. After he made his signature meal, lol we just relaxed and hung out around the house. I had made up this scavenger hunt type game since we were stuck indoors, it was a series of clues throughout the house that would lead him to his gift . As the evening went on he solved each clue and had a great time. We were concerned about the roads so he decided it would be best to get going. We said our goodbyes, I told him to travel safely and call as soon as he got home.
After he left I went upstairs and I heard the dog barking in the living room, I went back down to see what was going on and he was back at the door, I opened it and he came in and gave me my anniversary gift, which I loved. So once again we said our goodbyes I locked the door and went up stairs to change. About an hour later I’m sitting in the living room watching the news and the clock waiting for his call that he had made it home, when there is a knock at the door. Its late I’m wondering who is at my door at this hour. I asked who it was and it was him. I opened the door asked if he had gotten stuck in the snow he said no, I asked was everything okay he said yes. Well I thought he just decided to come back for a while as he sometimes will leave and change his mind and come back to spend more time together. Or maybe he decided the roads were too rough and wanted to stay over. He turns off the tv, and puts the dog in the basement. I’m still clueless, thinking-and I don’t know why-maybe he wants to dance lol. We sat down on the coach and he took both my hands and begun to say the sweetest things like “You are the only women I have ever loved, ever want to love, and want to love for the rest of my life”, “You know you can plan things and they don’t turn out as planned from the weather to the details, but…” By now I’m going “Oh my God, Oh my God” thinking it’s happening! The next thing I know he said my full name and went down on one knee and said “Will you be my wife?” I said “YES!” threw my arms around him and cried and cried! It was wonderful!
Apparently he had been planning to do it that day but with the weather and all we couldn’t go out, and he wasn’t able to pick up the ring by that day as he had planned. He said he went out to the car and thought to himself that he couldn’t let the day go by without asking. He told me that he had previously sat down with my father and asked for my hand in marriage! The ring is at the jeweler but he showed me a pic that he had torn from a catalog that I circled like two years ago! It was all faded and folded up in his wallet he told me that he got a ring that looks very similar to it. I’m so excited Bees, have been making and receiving phone calls for two days! We are very excited and feel so blessed to enter this next phase of our lives.
Thanks again for all your well wishes and support, I just love the hive and of course you all know as soon as I get the ring I’ll posts those pics !
