So sweet - I'm inspired to share now.

My FI and I have been friends for 7 years - dated for 2.5.

When we first started to date, he was going through a lot of very big issues - ending a long-term relationship that wasn't really healthy, leaving the company that we both worked for (I had already left), starting a new business, moving back to where I was...

We used to go to this really cute restaurant area and watch the sunset and talk and plan. I would literally watch the stress melt from him while we would sit next to each other on the adirondack chairs.

One afternoon, after we had a really nice day at the spa, he took me there, we sat on the adirondack chairs and just passed the time like we have for years. He asked me to dance with him. He played a game with me which is totally like him. It was called, "Tell me your favorite memory from the future" (for example, "I remember when chet was a puppy and you turned bright red because he chewed all your shoes.") Then he said some incredibly kind, sweet things about our relationship and then asked me to marry him and gave me a beautiful ring (I finally understood why he was carrying his computer bag - with my ring - around all day including at the spa that we had visited earlier).

Then he said, "I remember when you made me the happiest I've ever been when you told me on the adirondack chairs that you would be with me for the rest of our lives."
omg...that story just made me tear up...that is so sweet what he said to you!!! what a keeper!

        He is a really great man and I will do everything that I can to make sure that he feel as appreciated as he truely deserves to feel.

        Update to the story - the chairs were a bit long in the tooth (not too bad, though). Anyway, there are fewer of them than there used to be. Either the venue is throwing them out - or - he bought two for our wedding gift. Wouldn't put it past him.
