I did! My fiance proposed two weeks ago today. It was exactly perfect – simple and sweet.
We had discussed getting engaged, so I knew it was on his mind. We even talked about being engaged before the year was through. We are going on vacation this summer, and I thought he might propose during our trip. However, I came home late after work on Thursday night, walked into my living room – and there he was. He had parked his car down the street and had my parents let him in. It was so simple and yet the most genuine, intense surprise I have ever had. He got down on one knee, opened the box, and the rest was history. I burst into tears. Then we got to celebrate with my parents and a bottle of champagne. Like I said, simple and sweet. I have a lot of anxiety about big dramatic to-dos, and he is not a man of many flowery words, so it was exciting for both of us in the ways we are most comfortable. It was a perfect infinitesimal moment in time and I will never forget it.
