It was a very spontaneous proposal, and very joyous. He had the ring hidden in his glovebox, and then when I was bopping around the car, he asked me to check in there as I was preparing to throw out a few things. And Voila! There was the ring, shiny, and staring at me. In my shock, I was convinced that I found it on accident (which had been my fear all along) and exclaimed, "Are you serious?!". Which probably is considered an inappropriate response to a marriage proposal. In my shock, I barely heard him say the words, "Will you marry me?" About the time it registered that he was seriously I immediately responded with a Yes.
A little comical, a little shocking, a lot of wonderful.
He did good. :)
Stay tuned for the rest of our adventures in engagement-land.
Oh yeah, the wedding date is another Friday. August 6, 2010.
