Pretty sparse on details there, like, who took the photo??
With an air horn blaring and the nipple tassels swinging.
...she said no.
edit: I was also wearing a sombrero.
That's awesome. Any pics?A funny story. Before I proposed, I managed to get my in-laws away from my wife. I said I had a question for them and showed them the ring. My father-in-law looks at me and says, "I appreciate the gesture, but I'm already married." My MIL was tearing up and my FIL was trying to act macho about it, but I could tell he was flattered I would ask them first.
I proposed on the beach at Indiana Dunes State Park. It was cold, windy, and there wasn't another person in sight. Sarah couldn't figure out why I wanted to go out there before we met some friends of hers for dinner. I proposed out by the sea wall. When we got back in the car I had a CD burnt with Chris Rice's "When Did You Fall" cued up. That song describes the four years before we got married to a tee. We sat in the car listening to that song, watching the waves come in off the lake, and warming up before we went to dinner.
I had not met her friends before and it was kind of fun when Sarah introduced me as her fiance. They wanted to know when that happened. The jaws dropped when I answered, "About 20 minutes ago!"
It wasn't about the proposal itself. It was all about the people we shared it with.
Two months. Engaged for two and a half years, while attending different universities. Married for almost 35, and counting.
We were engaged just six months, but we were married four years to the day we met. It will be seven years in September.
