The day my FH proposed, it was November 17th, 2007...the day before my b-day. He was actually moving from Florida to Kentucky for a job he had taken. Long story, but finances was the driving force behind this major move. I decided to join him on this long road trip. I felt sad the whole time. My baby was leaving, and I didn't know what the future held for us. I was not a fan of long distance relationships at all. So you can imagine what I was thinking and a proposal was far from my mind. After a long trip, we arrived in KY, and had a hotel room booked for the remainder of the weekend. We were really tired from the trip and decided to order in and hang out for the night. I fell asleep for a while and it must of been minutes to midnight when he woke me up. He wanted me to open my bday presents. I was so sleepy and resistant, saying "no its okay, I'll open it first thing tomorrow morning." But he pressed on. So I decided to get up and he presented me with this big box. In it was a box with a candle, a mini art easel picture frame (we're both artists) and a poem that ties in the candle and art easel picture frame. Won't tell the whole thing, but it went something like "You light up my life and I can't picture myself without you!" CORNY...but my heart melted...LOL. And attached to the bottom of the frame was smaller box. Right there I should of known that it was the ring, but I thought it was earrings or something!! So I opened it and BAM!!! the waterworks came on. I think I was saying things like "Oh my god", "what the hell", "are you serious?". So he got on one knee, asked me and I said YES!!! So after a year and a half of our long distance relationship, he finally landed an excellent job back in FL and now we are planning the wedding!
