London Eye proposal
Posted 17 July 2010 - 06:14 AM
During one of our visits to London, we decided to take a ride on the London Eye (his idea) with some close family members (let me add, the whole time, said family members had these nonstop grins on their faces that made me think they were crazy until I found out why) and when we reached the top, the whole ferris wheel stopped. Of course, I freaked out...but thankfully restrained myself to not let it show. I'm not afraid of heights or anything, but all I thought of at the moment was 'oh great, it's broken. My luck this happens while we're on it.' I'm an adventurous girl, but am not into being stuck somewhere for hours while engineers try to fix it far down below.
Anyway, while I had my internal freak-out, I didn't notice Eric was getting down on one knee. When I finally turned around to say a comment about the broken ferris wheel, I gasped. Silent tears streamed down my face as he proposed. He placed the ring on my finger and we hugged and kissed. I said yes! It was amazing and I found out from the family members that the ferris wheel had been stopped on purpose for the proposal.
One last thing I'd like to add, the London Eye goes slow as it is, so it took me a while to realize the whole thing had come to a complete stop. Makes me wonder just how long FI was on his knee until I finally turned around and realized..hmm...
I'm still dying to find out how he got them to stop a very popular and well-known attraction, but he won't budge. =/

To answer your question, he moved to the Florida (where I live now) for a couple years out of work purposes. He's originally from the UK. We met when he moved here, but we kind of go back and forth to visit family, since we got together. We plan on living in England after the wedding.
