Last week, my SO told me that it was bothering him that I knew he was planning to propose soon. He felt like there was no way to surprise me since I knew he had the ring and that he had previously told me it would happen in March. He said he wanted to make it fun and special so he came up with an idea: Engagemukkah.
Engagemukkah? Yes, engagemukkah. A Hannukah-like engagement. (Which was especially funny since we are not Jewish and do not celebrate Hannukah!)
He explained to me that every night, he’d be giving me a gift — eventually leading up to an engagement ring and a proposal.
The gifts he gave were very thoughtful — including a plastic ring my little cousin gave him. We took her to Chuck E. Cheese in January and one of the prizes she won was this ring. She gave it to him and said, “Here, now you can ask oneheartoneway to marry you! And I can be your junior bridesmaid!” Well, he hung onto the ring and that was my first gift. So sweet! 🙂
And on the 4th night of engagemukkah, he got down on one knee and proposed. He told me that the past year and a half have been the best and that there is no one else he’d rather spend his life with.
Then he asked me to be his wife and put the most beautiful ring on my finger!! (And thankfully, I got a manicure on the 3rd day of engagemukah!)
