We were together for 13 years at the time and had booked a family vacation to Mexico with his family as part of my 30th birthday celebration. He had asked his mom to hold onto the ring until it was time. we had gone on a timeshare tour with his family of the resort, it was stunning.. later in the day after the tour he had arranged for us to go back to the presidential suite rooftop for a "party" there was a butler with champagne and rose petals and he proposed on the luxury rooftop at sunset. I couldn't have asked for a better proposal it was like a dream!!! and the ring was more then I could have ever imagined.. he did good
February 29th, 2016. I proposed to her.I planned it for weeks. I had my mom, daughter and friend cutting out little red paper hearts. I printed off little stories of our time together and glued them to red paper which I hung from the ceiling in the hallway. I borrowed lights from my office and ordered a lot of tealight candles. The morning of the 29th I woke up early with my daughter to set up. Hung the lights up down the hall way and had the cut out hearts lining the hallway into the living room where I had candles lit. My daughter went to go knock on the room to tell her she needed her help (and she captured the moment for us)
We actually came to a mutual decisions that the correct progression of the relationship would be to get married. We bought the rings on February 12th, but we have an ongoing "competition" to see who can propose the most until the wedding day.
After years of harassment, he decided to propose Feb 15, 2017 at 5:30am before he left for work for 2 weeks. Turns our he had the ring in the house for over a year, but did not want to ask on Valentines Day, and for some reason decided not to ask on our weekend away in Jasper
He told me we were going out to a restaurant to celebrate his promotion (since we haven't celebrated with just the two of us yet). When we got back he said that we should watch a movie but first he needed to watch this gaming thing on his computer. I went to go feed the cats, when he told me to come to the study. I opened the door and there were candles in a heart shape on the floor and he was down on one knee.
I visited him in St Louis, Mo and I had a crazy day travelling, flight got cancelled and allll that haha i was supposed to be in St Louis at 9:35 am but ended up that i had to take a train from chicago to st louis after flights delays so I got there at 11:45pm He took me to forest park and proposed while it was snowing a little, it was very cute! The best way to end a lonnnng day of traveling!
It was Christmas morning... he woke up early and turned on all the Christmas lights etc.. (I could hear him from other room- he slept in spare room)... and we opened our gifts then he handed me the last gift (was a large sweater box)... I began to open it.. there was soo much tissue paper and finally I found the ring box... looked up at him and he got on his knee.. said the sweetest things with tears in his eyes and asked me was just perfect!
