How they asked
I can finally put this out there! So this was how I proposed to Cally, the other story! ?
Those who have gone through this (and those who will soon find out) you want to propose in a way that speaks to you as a person and couple. Some plan a flash mob, a fancy meal, or even arrange a marry me sign. I couldn’t do this because “Edi doesn’t plan” …. I’m a spontaneous improviser!
This made it even more of a challenge because Cally knows this, and the moment I planned a holiday or meal she would have clocked on to what I was about to do.
Because of this I took the ring with me everywhere hoping the “moment” would arise in line with my spontaneous style.
After a month or so of waiting for the right moment, I was sitting on the sofa admiring “my precious” (yes I became very attached to this ring by this point) Cally almost caught me staring at the ring, and it hit me!….All these missed opportunities mixed in with the thought – Cally doesn’t know I have the ring!! I should just start documenting these moments!
This escalated quickly into trying to get as many photos of Cally with the ring without her knowing!…. yes she had no idea what I was doing in these photos!!!
The idea was to take as many photos, in more daring scenarios, until I found the perfect moment to propose, or until I got caught, at which point I would propose!
Here are some of the photos I captured over the space of about a month before I found the right moment (this is a story in its own right).
I got so brave and confident taking these photos I managed to capture this! Cally holding the ring whilst sleeping!
I left in Cally’s Jewellery plate for two days! And she didn’t spot it!
I ask in the moment! ;) It’s a story in its own right!!!
