We just recently bought a house together that we planned on fixing up and making our dream home. I didn’t know it at the time but this is where Greg was going to propose to me.
It was a Thursday evening and he told me we were going to a nice restaurant for dinner since we hadn’t had a date night in a while. So I met him at his parents house all dressed up and excited to finally have some alone time with Greg (buying a house is stressful!!)
As we were leaving the restaurant, he asked if I wanted to stop by our new home. I didn’t know this at the time but my future brother and sister in law were hard at work lighting all the hundreds of candles Greg had set up in the house.
When we pulled up to the house, he led me to the side door and told me to go in. When I walked in I was completely blown away! Greg had created a scene right out of a movie. The kitchen counters, table and shelves were lite up from so many candles. There was a path of rose petals and white string lights leading me from the kitchen into the living room. He turned his iPod on (country love songs of course) and walked me into the living room. When we got there, there was a piece of sheet rock leaning up again the wall that said “Will You Marry Me??!!” Greg got down on one knee and there asked me to marry him! Of course I said YES!!
He told me that this was going to be our house together and this is where we are going to start our family. He said that those words on the sheet rock will forever be in the foundation of our home together. This is where our love story will begin.
