Here’s the story of how Chris proposed. We had gone to the All-College basketball game, but I rode with my uncle, and Chris met us there after work. When it was time to leave, Chris drove home and I rode with my uncle to get my car. I remember Chris calling to ask when I would be home- after I picked up my car and drove home, I told him, as I wondered why he was asking this when I’d just seen him 20 minutes ago!
On the way home, I really wanted ice cream, so I called Chris to see if he wanted anything. I was slightly annoyed when he said no, he didn’t want anything, and then told me to just come home and eat the ice cream in the freezer. I remember being even more annoyed when I pulled onto our street and saw that he didn’t leave any lights on- not even the outside lights!
I walked in the house, and it was completely dark, except for the candles near the door! Chris was at the end of the doorway, on his knee, holding the ring! I was completely shocked and so happy! He said some really sweet things, then asked me to marry him, and I said yes! It was absolutely adorable and a perfect proposal.
He did great with the ring- I love it! And, I can’t stop staring at my hand!
