Happy National Proposal Day!
March 20th, 2017 is National Proposal Day so it got me thinking about the day we got engaged and wondering about all of the proposals that are happening this year.
In the early days of our relationship, my husband (then boyfriend) would leave me post it notes all over the place with confessions of love and romance written on them. Some would be easy to find, others, I’m still finding to this day nearly 9 years later. (TRUTH: he was putting them in books he thought I was going to read and then I never did– until now!)
Post It! Notes were his way of letting me know he loved me, even when he wasn’t around. So it was only natural that we got engaged via Post It note. But I never suspected that was what was going to happen.
After a night out together, I came home to do school work and sit at my computer. My daily planner was always right there in front of me ready to remind me of all of the important things I needed to accomplish.
On this particular night in 2010, my planner had a note on it that said “open to 4/3 please”. And when I did, it had a second note asking me to marry him. When I turned around, he was down on his knee holding the ring.
Gush worthy in my mind. And totally us.
This is a remake of the post it notes via video.
The real ones are proudly framed and hanging on the wall of our bedroom.
So how did you get engaged? Was it in a special location? A big surprise with family and friends? On vacation? or privately together at home?
We’d love to hear your stories.
And if you’re recently engaged or know someone that just said yes, we have a great leather GPS engagement sign to always remember when and where it all started!
