How They Asked

Thanksgiving 2018, his family was meeting my family for the first time. Because of distance it’s been difficult to get them together to meet each other so we thought this was finally the perfect time to get them together. His brother even flew in from Texas to surprise him for the holiday but the surprise ended up being on me in the end. A week or so before he had ordered some stemless wine glasses that said “Thankful” on them and he asked if I liked them. He told me he was going to give them to the family as a gift. Not thinking anything of this I told them they were nice and that was the end of it. After Thanksgiving dinner he decides to pass them out and asks for my help. While I’m passing them out he tells me the gift bags all have names on them (which they didn’t, only mine did) and for me to pay attention. I told him I didn’t see any names and laughed telling him he should have told me that! Everyone gets their glass and finally starts to open them. I open mine and to my surprise it says “Mrs.” I was completely surprised. I didn’t know what was going on and kept asking because I was confused lol. Then he gets on one knee and in front of the people who are closest to us asked me to marry him. I immediately started crying and said YES! I had no idea that he was going to do this and that made the moment even more perfect to me!! I couldn’t be happier!
