the mommyhood memos: the proposal

the proposal

His idea was big, bold, and public.

Unbeknownst to him my idea was quiet, intimate, and sentimental.

But he was the one with the ring so...

I got my proposal on the main stage at our local Christmas festival in front of 1,500 cheering and screaming on-lookers.

I was shocked and a little embarrassed. Ok, a lot embarrassed. (And for the record that's very hard to do.)

I was also thrilled.

As far as a proposal was concerned, big, bold, and public had never even entered my imagination... but I was just glad to be asked to spend the rest of my life with the man I adored.

It was a happy, happy day.

Happy Love Day to my sweetheart. I'm so glad you wanted to show me off to the whole world.

And now, so do I... in my own little way. *grin*

I'm still so very in love with you.

In fact, I'm more in love with you now than I even was then... on that hot, humid night in December:

And obviously I was pretty dang happy and in love with you then.

You have my heart Ryan. Always.

Awww, that is a sweet story! I would have been petrified if my guy proposed to me on a stage...I have a borderline phobia of being in front of a lot of people. lol. BUt, the thought of it sounds so adorable if I weren't such a wus!

I would be embarrassed, too, but I bet that was totally exhilarating at the same time!

I have seen proposals like this happen on TV, though I don't know anyone who it's happened to. Until now. :)

That is so sweet. I would have liked a little bigger and flashier, in fact for a while it was a bit of a sore point for us. He made up for a lame proposal with by planning a romantic 1 year anniversary. In any case, after 11.5 years of marriage, I have no regrets! Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day!
