how they asked: It was the Fourth of July weekend, exactly one year after we had first met. We planned a little trip, taking the airplane to fly down to Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks for a romantic long weekend.
What Christy didn’t know was that I had the ring ready to go… and that I had snuck away to her family’s summer house (which happened to be right on our route of flight) a few days earlier and spelled out the big question on the lawn. In large, red eight-foot letters, 160 feet wide! :)
Christy said YES! This was the happiest day of my life… only to be surpassed the following May, when she said YES again and we got married to each other. In the exact same spot, right there on the lawn overlooking the river…
