How They Asked
Our 5th dating anniversary was coming up on Feb 7th. After the Super Bowl, we stayed at my parents’ house and I took the following Monday off, which meant we could spend the day together. We spent the day talking about our goals for the future and where we see ourselves in a few years. Eventually, I thought I had convinced him to go look at rings together, he told me he wanted to stop at the apartment quickly and then we’d be on our way. To say I was elated would be an understatement. I waited in the car when he headed inside and shortly after he came to the door and waived for me to come in. I had the mail in my hand so he asked me to run it upstairs quickly. When I came back down he called my name and I walked into our living room with him down on one knee in front of our fireplace and a small letter board sign that read “Will you marry me?” I was shocked and beyond happy. It was sweet, heartfelt and just the two of us. He had the ring the entire time! I think we both knew from the very beginning of our relationship that we’d end up together, but now it’s official!
