I’m training for a half-marathon with my man. Sundays are our long run days, and yesterday we had a 10-mile route planned along a lake, passing through a nature preserve. About 3 miles in, he says he has to stop because he “has a cramp”… so I keep running back and forth waiting for him to walk it off. Ha! Then, he points out that there is a blanket with roses and champagne glasses on it just by the lakeshore. I STILL have NO IDEA what is going on, so I’m like “Oh, that’s so cute! Someone must have had a date planned here!”
I didn’t get that it was for ME until he said “I have a question for you…” and got down on one knee. At which point I started crying my face off and responded, “ABSOLUTELY!!”
The champagne was great, and we had a view of the distant city skyline across the water. He did well!!! (Needless to say, we didn’t finish our run. Haha!)
The ring has a big emotional history – the diamond was in his mother’s engagement ring. She passed away when he was a teenager. He had it reset by a wonderful local jeweler – he asked me for hints, but ended up going with something totally different from what I had envisioned. And I LOVE it. It’s so timeless:

Congrats! It’s gorgeous!
My Fiance also proposed on our favorite running route. Unfortunately, it was in December and only 20 degrees so no champagne or picnic for me! Lol
