How did he propose?
Fiance and I had been coming up on our Five year dating anniversary and my birthday, so we decided we could combine the two and celebrate by going away for the weekend. We had been talking for a while about getting married and knew that we would eventually.
I just didn’t know when the proposal would be. We went to a jeweler and designed a ring together, however I had no idea when the ring would be done or any of the time line details. He knows how much I love surprises so he wanted to keep our anniversary weekend a surprise so I did not know where we were going.
We ended up going to the mountains in PA and staying at a bed and breakfast that over looked the entire valley. After we got settled at the B & B I wanted to go back outside to the veranda and take pictures of the beautiful view. He agreed and brought along my birthday gift— which I just assumed was a cookbook from the looks of it. Up until this point I still did not think he would be proposing this weekend. I had thought he might initially, but my mother (who was in on it as he asked her permission) was very persuasive at making me believe otherwise.
Anyways, we went out on to the veranda to take pictures of the sun setting and open my birthday present. It was a scrapbook of our relationship. He had saved our first date movie ticket stub, and had pages of us from college, graduations, concerts, up until present day. The last page said “The next chapter”… and when I looked up he was on his knee with the ring.
I don’t remember much of what he said and we laugh about it now because he said I looked like I was going to pass out! Later that night we had dinner reservations at a great restaurant that specialized in crab cakes (my favorite). It was all in all a fantastic weekend!
