My 10 year anniversary is tomorrow, so I thought I’d share my proposal…
Without going into too much detail, we were young and dumb while dating, but eventually got our heads put back in the right place and got back together.
We were both in the military. In October, I was just told that I was going to be medically discharged. That was kind of scary because I didn’t know what I was going to do next! Well, that very same day I was told, I was sent to the field with my brand new unit. Just a few things going on all at once…eeek!
When I came home a few weeks later, My Love had left me a dozen roses! Awww…how sweet! We met up to go grocery shopping (we liked to cook together) and he was sooo not himself that night…he seemed so stressed, so I asked…”What’s wrong?” Him: “Stress” (I know there was more conversation than this, but not a whole lot more---very uncommon for us).
We got back to the barracks and put groceries away and I sat down on the couch. He was up kind of pacing…he walked over to his jacket and said, here, I have something for you. He handed me a piece of computer paper folded up like a card…Here was what was on the front (yes, this is the actual card!):
I had NO clue what it was going to say…I do remember thinking that maybe it would be something asking me to stick around the area when I got out instead of going off to Arizona to go to college (like we had talked about). So, I opened it…
I was flabbergasted…stunned…
I remember very clearly asking “Ummm, are you sure?”
I don’t even remember saying yes, though I obviously did at some point. Come to find out later that My Love was sitting holding his breath the whole time, ready to bolt out of the room if I said “no”.
Oh yeah, and he had also called my Daddy and asked for my hand in marriage before he asked me. He’s awesome.
So, not long after that, I got out of the military and we were married and it’s been an awesome adventure since then!
How were you proposed to?
