how they asked
Drew and I had planned on going on a birthday trip to Bend, OR for months. He had also hyped up a gift he was going to make me, he’s a wonderful wood worker. Well my birthday came and he said he hadn’t finished it yet, I was a little disappointed but understood. A few days later we were on our way to Bend! On the way there he wanted to stop at Belknap hot springs and take a soak, I was thrilled. Well we got there and the pool was closed for cleaning, so Drew suggested that we go up to the secret garden and have a picnic. We got there and we were the only ones there and had the whole garden totally to ourselves. While I was setting up the table Drew had gotten behind me and when I turned around he was down on one knee saying “Deirdre, will you marry me!?” I obviously said yes! He had spent months planning the ring, proposal, and making the box that my engagement ring went in, it is something that we will pass on to our children and put an extra special touch on what was an amazing day.
