SUYL- A Low Key But Still Romantic Engagment

Show Us Your Life this week is about proposal stories! You can read the longer version about my engagement here.  Our engagment was very low key. Originally it was supposed to have been done on a horse drawn carriage here in Memphis, when we came to visit and look for a home. Mother nature had a different plan and gave us lots of snow in NJ causing the stores and the jewelery store to close, which he was completely upset and mad about. Nonetheless, when we came back he went and picked it up (note: I didn't know about any of this, though I had an inkling, until after we got engaged). He looked excited that night when I got home from work but I didn't know why. Until midnight of course. When he asked me to marry him, in bed, being all silly. It was perfect for us because we're silly together although he did get alot of heat about it from his family later! We didn't take any pictures of our engagment that night but when we got to Memphis we had my mom take some at the Botanical Gardens. I wasn't really dressed for them though so I think we'll try again but my favorite was this one:

Stopping by from Kelly's Korner. Our proposal was very low key as well and I wouldn't change anything about it! Loved your story! : )
