It was a Friday evening and we had a surprise “birthday” party to go to for one of his roommates. He picked me up that evening and we casually drove to the restaurant. We get there and he tells me “hey they are running late, let’s just take a small walk until they get here.” We began to walk around Unicorn Lake, a place we had visited on our first two dates. We arrived at the bridge that we had walked on many times before. Once we got to the bridge, there were some rose petals in the shape of a heart. At this point, I began to realize what was going on. He grabbed both my hands and looked me in the eyes as he began to express how much he loved me. After he finished, he dropped to one knee and pulled out a beautiful ring and asked “Carleigh, will you marry me?” I couldn’t believe it was really happening. Tears began to fill my eyes as I said yes! He stood up, we hugged and kissed and before we left the proposal location he prayed for our relationship and engagement.
