The Story of Chris and Stephanie ( a whee bit long)

Recommended Posts

So this is how it went--

I met Chris on the internet in September of 2005 and never really though we would get married. He has this fear of failure and I come from a divorced family so I have seen the bad end of things. We talked for a while on the phone then set-up our first date. The night we met there was a huge storm and by the time I got to the restaurant my shirt was soaked (of course I saved my hair by pulling my coat up) and I was shivering. Well to make a long story short we got a long well. We have had a few hiccups but nothing we couldn't figure out.

 

I was not expecting him to ask me to marry him but really wanted him to! So one day I forwarded on one of those email things you get that asks you dozens of questions ranging from what is your favorite food to if you could bring back one dead person who would it be. Well I threw one more question on the tail end and it was "Would you marry your current partner" This was my child like way of seeing where I stood. I knew we were serious but not sure what that meant to him.

 

So about a week later we are driving by a billboard with a huge engagement ring on it and he asks if that is the type of engagement ring I would want!!

This spurred a conversation about it and I knew it was going to be asked shortly.

He didn't do it big like some guys--that isn't his style. I had taken a Friday off from work (Good Friday) and we were snuggled up and he asked if I would marry him. I honestly didn't answer at first because I thought he was just goofing around. Then he got real serious and asked again. So I of course said yes and then we went out that day to pick out my ring. FYI- the ring wasn't nearly as big as the one we saw on the billboardsmile120.gif

 

He later told me that he was waiting for the right time to ask and that holding me in his arms was the perfect time. He recently told me he knew months after meeting me that he wanted to marry me!

Aww I love that! Aaron proposed in our townhouse, just the two of us after a long day of work. It was perfect. I wouldn't change it for the world! He has since said that he wishes he did something bigger - but I loved it!
