The Proposal: Her Story
On the day of our third year anniversary we attended a wedding. Josh was ready to go about an hour before we had discussed being ready. Then everyone started rushing me! I finished getting ready and went to the wedding. I was told before we went to the reception we need to go back by the house because my mom needed to grab something. While we were there Josh insisted that we should take pictures. I did not want to take pictures, only go and eat, but I decided to give in and take pictures since we were both dressed up.
In the midst of taking pictures Josh hands me a box of chocolates and a card for our anniversary. I read the card and take the chocolates and told him how much I loved them. I really only like fruit filled chocolate so I sat the chocolate down and began to walk away. Josh said wait I want a piece of chocolate. For those of you that know Josh, you know that he hates chocolate, so I was excited when he said he wanted chocolate. If Josh said he wanted some chocolate, I was thinking it must be some really great chocolate, so I wanted some as well. I was struggling to get the ribbon off the box, and when I finally did I was thinking that it was kind of lopsided. Josh quickly took the top off the box and revealed the ring box within the chocolate. I wanted to scream and get really excited but I suppressed my feelings just in case it wasn’t a ring, so I wouldn’t embarrass myself. I asked “is it earrings?” Instead of answering me he dropped down to one knee and proposed. I was laughing, clapping (like a baby seal), and overjoyed. I must admit I was upset that my nails were not painted, because I made him promise that when he proposed he would make sure my nails were painted. I did give him a hard time about my nails although I am glad he didn’t hold back the proposal over my nails, keeping me away from that ring. The ring was a beautiful representation of our commitment to one another and went perfectly with the beautiful moment.
