My FI wasn't nervous the night that he took me out (or so he says) for our 1-year anniversary dinner because he knew what he wanted to do. I knew he was going to propose this year, but I didn't know it would be our anniversary night! And so, I thought nothing of it when he acted ultra giddy on our way to the restaurant. If you ask him today, he'll say that he's never been more sure about anything else before.
During dinner, we were seated in a secluded, private area of the restaurant with no one around us. We toasted to each other, our love, and our future and he took this opportune time to ask if I wanted to spend forever with him. I said "yes, you know I do" still not catching on to what he was about to do. He asked me to spend forever with him, to be his wife and through the crying, foggy vision, and nervous shaking I said "yes!" We were both smiling ear-to-ear. I never thought someone could truly surprise me the way he did and catch me off guard. Never in my wildest dreams did I think someone could pull off a proposal without me knowing about it, but he did. We both just gazed at each other taking in the surrealness of the moment - - probably thinking the same thing: Did he? Did I just...? YES! We are engaged. He was smiling ear-to-ear; we hugged, we kissed and couldn't stop staring at each other. The whole moment felt surreal, like something out of a novel, and my stomach was in knots. For us, it was by far the perfect proposal, the most romantic night of my life, and an evening neither of us will ever forget. I wouldn't change a thing...errrr, except we should've had a camera on hand!!
