He asked on Sunday evening, and it still hasn’t quite sunk in!
We were at my parents’ cottage near the beach for the long weekend. On Sunday night, after dinner out with my parents and my brother, he suggested that we walk to a little beach nearby to “see the stars”. We sat in the sand and chatted for awhile and tried to pick out constellations, and then he started to talk about how he wanted this to last forever. And I absolutely agreed.
He said, “So, forever, huh? Forever, like… this?” And he pulled out a box, turned it over in his hand a few times, and opened it. I could barely see the ring in the dark…but he put it on my finger and asked me to marry him. I cried/giggled a lot, and he chattered about the planning and ring-shopping until he realized that we’d better get home if we wanted to tell my family before they went to bed.
When we got up to leave the beach, a dog from one of the houses nearby found us and barked his head off at us until we’d gone. What’s a proposal story without some comic relief, right? 😉 All in all, I couldn’t have dreamed up a better time, and I’m so incredibly happy to be marrying the guy I adore!
