What is your answer to this question?
For me, it was a gift that many ladies have received. My most surprising gift was my engagement ring. Sure, we had talked about marriage and what our life together would be but I was a college student and my guy was a grunt … more specifically an enlisted Infantry guy in the Army! I knew he didn’t have money to get me a ring but he hand managed to work out a financing deal and surprise me with a ring during his holiday leave. We hadn’t seen each other for months and during that time we had over a month where we didn’t even talk due his training. So needless to say, I was just happy to have him around.
I love my proposal story because it is a snowy, romantic story at one of my favourite places, the campus of Virgina Tech. ahhhh. We walked from my apartment to an ice cream store that had just opened and then walked over to campus. I remember telling Brian that my hands were going to freeze while I was foolishly trying to finish my yummy waffle cone! We got to campus and stood on top of the chapel (yes, you can stand on the top of the chapel!) and looked over the beautiful Drill Field. I saw the lights on in my old dorm room. That was the room I lived in when I met Brian. I was freezing and rambling on about how that room had great memories. Brian reached around me with a box and asked if I would create a lifetime of memories with him. That is when the tears started! Tears that instantly froze to my face. That was my Christmas gift eight years ago. I still remember how surprised I was and how special I felt that night.
I share that story hoping that we all get a moment where we are that surprised and feel that special!!
