- Wedding: April 2012
We got engaged on november 12th, but I just came across this board and couldn’t resist sharing. Well here goes……We were together for five years and although I really wanted the ring, I was trying to be understanding since I knew that my boyfriend was putting all his money into renovating our future house. On november 12th was his 30th birthday and since I was planning a big surprise birthday party the next day, I was relieved when he told me that all he wanted to do was on his birthday was watch a surfing competition. When we got to the beach ,”for the surfing competition”, he walked over to a towel and picked it up saying “why would somebody leave a towel there?”. Next, he dug out the box and handed it to me. When I opened the box and saw a rose, a folded up map, gold coins, and jewelry, I didn’t even know what to think. I was so confused that I thought we were ruining someone else romantic surprise. LOL. Then he handed me the map, which read, “will you marry me”, and got down on one knee. Although I didn’t cry, I was beaming for the whole day and I am smiling now when I think about how much work he put into the proposal. I am really hoping that despite all the stress, I can feel as happy on our wedding day as I did back then.
