The Tiny Heart: Engaged-iversary

3.19.2012

Engaged-iversary

Two years ago today, my hubby (then boyfriend) proposed to me. Back then, I was still living in NYC and he was in Jersey, so we only got to see each other on the weekends. That Friday night was nothing out of the ordinary. I rode the train down after work, we ate burritos from our favorite place, and then we were watching tv. He went towards the closet and said, "Wanna see something?" and pulled out the ring box.


Yup, he proposed to me in what is now our bedroom. 

He later told me he had planned to write "Will you marry me?" in the sand on the beach the next morning, but he got so nervous that he decided he couldn't wait any longer to propose. To this day, he still says he blew the proposal.


I didn't get some over-the-top, romantic proposal, but it did come from the heart. And that's really all that matters.

  11. Aww, that is so sweet Sharon! And the over-the-top proposals can sometimes feel a little less genuine. I love that he was too nervous to wait LOL!

    1. Thanks Marion! I'm happy the proposal was just the two of us and not with a million people around. It made it so much more special and plus I was crying my eyes out :)

  12. Yay that's so exciting! Proposals don't have to be huge crazy things - it'll always mean something to you no matter what :) And I love that you guys have such a big height difference. It's awesome.

  17. These are quite possibly the most adorable photos ever!!!!! EVER! I love that you and your hubs are so differently size, my hubs and I are the same way :) Oh and I think that's the perfect proposal, he was so excited he couldn't wait any longer! I did get a sort of elaborate proposal BUT I totally put 2 and 2 together before we even got to the location and according to Rand "ruined his surprise", I mean, we drove up behind a horse drawn carriage and it was my fave day of the year...what else was I supposed to think LOL...

    1. Haha Lori! If there were any horses involved, I definitely would've known too! I have to say I was genuinely surprised for my proposal because really, who else gets engaged while watching tv?

  25. My hubby's proposal wasn't incredibly romantic or over the top either, but it was so "us," and that's all that matters. Super cute post :)
