- Wedding: September 2012
I’m feeling romantic & lovey dovey today, so I wanted to share my proposal story! My boyfriend had been gone for a military school in Texas for 6 weeks, so he wasn’t home for our 2 year anniversary. When he got home, he told me that he had made dinner reservations at the Harper House, a nice restaurant downtown. So we were celebrating our 2 year anniversary a few days late.
Neither of us had been there before, but it’s a really nice place. All brick inside with beautiful hardwood floors, a pianist playing softly in the background, it really was a sweet way for us to celebrate our anniversary. & he had only been back home for a few days, so I was just ecstatic to be spending time with him. After we ate, he asked me if I wanted to take a little walk downtown, so we took a little stroll. We went down by the old courthouse, took a seat on the bench there, and just talked for a little while. 🙂
The reason we went there to sit & talk was because that was where we sat & talked on our first real date together. There was a festival going on downtown back when we had our first date, so we walked around there and then found that quiet spot to sit & talk, people watch, just getting to know each other. So we walked down there after dinner, and talked for a bit. He started telling me how I was his best friend, that I really made him so happy, and how much he loved me. Then he said, “well, I brought you here for a reason.. I love you so much..will you marry me?” At this point he is down on one knee, with a little blue box popped open, and I am ecstatic, shocked, I said ‘are you for real?!?!?!YES!!” and he put this beauty on my finger. 🙂
I got butterflies in my stomach just typing this!! 🙂 But that is the short and sweet story of my proposal 🙂
