I’m Engaged!!!

I asked Amy to marry me this week and she accepted. We will be planning a Spring 2006 wedding.

The proposal was fun and memorable. I wanted this time around to be special and something that I would remember as well as her.

Since we both have kids who are with us just about every day, I arranged to take a day off so I could surprise her during the day. Next, since her family owns a messenger service, I arranged for her to make a “special” lunchtime delivery to a restaurant where a man would be awaiting a package he absolutely needed for a business meeting.

I filled a box with rose petals and the ring and then delivered it to her company for delivery. Yes, I arranged for Amy to bring her own ring to her own proposal.

I put together a few symbolic gestures such as various different colored roses intertwined together in twos. I wrote a note for her explaining all of the symbols of our lunch. And, with the rose and the note, I waited for the delivery.

Amy arrived to a big surprise….me! We had our wonderful moment together and I made my proposal. The rest is history.

It’s been a great week for me. More to come later.
