- Wedding: May 2011
We’ve been engaged since May 1 but I dont think i have told “the story” so here it is….
May 1st was Fh’s birthday and we planned on going bike riding on an Island near where we live with his sister and her boyfriend.
Well, April 30 or whatever the last day in April is Fh had been up for over 24 hours straight from working double at both of his jobs.(he told me this part later) After he got out of work he took the ferry over to the island and theres a place called battery steele that you spray paint on ( we had done this many times before) it’s an old army fort or something. well, he went to battery steele and theres a side room kind of thing and he spray painted will you marry me on the ground. that was that. the next day started like any other. i had no idea what was about to happen. we all got sandwiches and pedaled around the island. as we approached battery steele his sister had to pee. (good acting on her part, turns out she never really had to) so i went off in the woods with her while the guys disappeared. when she was done we went to find the guys. i went off to the right side and she kept insisting we go her way so finally i gave in and followed her.
Well, as we approached the other side of the fort i saw candles. there were a dozen single roses on the ground in a path leading up to the “room” and in the room there he was on bended knee behind his masterpiece. “Will you marry me?” was on the ground with tea light candles and rose petals scattered all around it. and of course he said “will you marry me?” and i just smiled and said “you know i will!”
I LOVE IT!
