I joined this forum in January 2013 and it took me almost 4 months of lurking to actually ask to get added to the waiting list. I started out as number 348 on the 3/25/13 list. Fast forward almost 6 months and 210 list positions and I am engaged!!!
The proposal wasn’t a complete surprise – I knew he had the ring (we had chosen it together) and I knew there was a fairly high chance he would do it on our vacation, but I was still full of doubts and anticipation.
Here’s how it went: we had just spent 3 beautiful nights exploring Quebec City and headed out to our amazing cabin at the Jacques Cartier national park. It was our second day there, and we had done some amazing hikes with some incredible views. We were coming back from our evening mini hike and in my mind if he was going to propose on a hike it would definitely be at the top of a mountain! So I wasn’t expecting anything that day when he offered to stop at a bridge to enjoy the sunset. And then he got down on one knee, asked if I would marry him. I instantly burst into tears mixed with plenty of giggling and jumping, and now I am officially engaged!
Here we are right after it happened:
And a view from earlier that day:
And of course my ring!

@Ms_Purple: @aithinne: @MrsBananas: @arsing89: Thank you SO much! I almost can’t belive it has actually happened.
@This Time Round: Thank you! I LOVE Canada in general (spent several childhood years in Ottawa and I’m pretty sure those years were some of the best of my life), but Quebec is just something else. And have I mentioned the food?.. We enjoyed our vacation so much I actually think we’ll be going there for our honeymoon!
