So I have been lurking on these boards for a few weeks and I finally decided to make an account and post! I have been engaged for a few months now but thought I would share my story since it was so romantic!
A week after our five year anniversary I was hanging out with his mom, step dad, and brother while he was hunting at his cabin with his cousin. Close to the end of the day his mom got a call that he left his lights on and now his jeep won’t start. His triple A was never renewed so we had to drive the hour to the cabin from where we were go go jump start his car. We pull up to the cabin and there are all these lights and there is a candle lit path going towards the river. I get out of the car and his mom drives away. I followed the candle lit path and go through an arbor and there is a fire going and a table with flowers under a canopy of lights. There was music playing in the background and He was nowhere to be found. A few minutes later he walks down holding a guitar and starts singing our song which is drunk on you by Luke Bryan. He started changing the words in the song. Like when the song says “you look good in those blue jeans” he sang “youll look good in that white dress” and when luke says “we’ll take if off on down by the water” he sang “i already asked your father”. and then he got down on one knee and proposed! The thing is he never played the guitar or sang! He bought a guitar and was taking guitar lessons after work for months and i never knew about it. What I later learned was that he took a week off from work (we live an hour away from eachother so we only see eachother on weekends) and was at the cabin preparing everything. He built the arbor himself from trees by the cabin. Another cool thing was he got instant bingos/pull tabs because they are my favorite and we won $250 on one off them! He had my favorite food ready (pizza and wings from my favorite place) but i was way too excited to eat anything. I was so surprised and I still can’t believe that he put all of that thought into this. Also his dad was hiding in the trees and took pictures of everything!
