how they asked
Adam and I have been together for 3 1/2 years. Adam had given me an hourglass necklace which he called “its only a matter of time.” Then, for my birthday gave me a paperweight with broken clocks on it and called it “time is of the essence.” So when he gave me the paperweight I said “where’s times up?” meaning the ring.
He proposed to me at my house with family all around us. He had my brother Frankie play guitar, while his girlfriend Caylin sang “Can’t help falling in love” by Elvis Presley. In the middle of the song, he had everyone sing along and then proceeded to take the ring box out and got down on one knee and said are you ready for times up? Then said, “will you marry me?” I, of course, said YES!
