My Fiance proposed on our three year anniversary – 19th January 2012. I was hoping it would be then and it was, I was dreaming of him proposing during a sunset walk on the beach on our anniversary, i didn’t want to tell him, because i knew about the ring, i knew the timeline, i kinda figured the date, i wanted him to figure out the how. and guess what? sunset walk on the beach was how he was going to do it!
we went for the walk on the beach at sunset, before going to dinner at a nice Italian restaurant, i had seen the ring box bulge in his pocket, i didn’t tell him cos i didn’t want to spoil it for him, BUT it was cloudy so we couldn’t see the sunset really, and it was very very CROWDED. no space anywhere, full of families with kids running around. so it didn’t happen then, we had a nice dinner and he suggested we go for a walk on the beach again after dinner.
So we went back down to the beach, the clouds were gone mostly, we could see all the stars, no one was on the beach except us, we walked a short ways then he stopped me. He said ‘Jacqui, I love you so much, I can’t wait to marry you and spend the rest of my life with you. You are the One.” I got very teary. Then he pulled the box out (after a bit of a struggle to get it out of his pocket). I had thought he would keep it in the little blue box from Tiffany’s. But it was just in the ring box that was inside it. So I blurted out: Where’s the Tiffany box? (I have zero control on what I say sometimes) He ignored that, got down on one knee and said “Will you marry me?” I said “YES!” We kissed and hugged and he put the ring on my finger.
We got back to the apartment where we were staying (we go on a holiday every year for our dating anniversary) and he gave me the poem he wrote.
It was so romantic and I wouldn’t change a single part of it! Oh and he had asked my father’s permission first, which I knew about. We had to convince him that we were planning a long engagement, and want to live together first, after that he was ok with it and gave his blessing, mum did right away.
I love my Fiance so much and I can’t wait to spend my life with him! Sorry for the long post!
