PROPOSAL STORY:
My fiancé informed me that he was had to go out of town for a business meeting. We packed up his overnight bag together, enjoyed the last few hours together before he left. I kissed him goodbye and watched him pull out of the driveway. An hour after he left as I was finishing up getting ready to go out to a dinner reservation with my friends I received a phone call from him stating that he had gotten a flat tire on the road and did not have the proper tool to change it. He asked if I could drive out to him so he could use the tool from my vehicle, I knew I would be late to my dinner reservation so I quickly made my way to where he said he had broken down, as the sun started to set I could see a bunch of lights in a corn field just off to the left side of the road, I paid no mind to the lights because as I got closer and closer I could see his truck parked on the right side of the road and what looked like him squatting down looking at the back tire. I got out of my car and walked up to him asking what exactly he needed from my vehicle, as I got up to him he turned around with the ring in his hand as he kneeled down on 1 knee. He first apologized for lying to me and promised it would never happen again, right before he asked me to Marry him. I said YES as I tried to fight back tears from ruining my dinner make up, but all of that fighting was a waste because when he told me to turn around and look into the field behind me I noticed the light filled tent I had seen in the distance only now I can clearly see now that it was not only filled with all of his friends and family but also my family AND my girlfriends I was late to meet for dinner!!!! He had arranged the entire thing from the fake business meeting, to having my girlfriends plan a dinner reservation, to even making sure I wear my favorite dress that I love taking pictures in to dinner by having my sister request that I wear a sunflower dress to match hers because he knew I would always find a reason to wear my favorite dress. I could not fight back the tears any longer! He truly is an amazing man and I’m really happy to spend my life with him.
