Our Proposal Story

Well, hey! Today marks the six month anniversary for our wedding!

I haven’t stopped talking about and sharing parts of our wedding since starting this blog really. It dawned on me though, that I haven’t really talked about the proposal. I think I’ve talked about it a little, but not recently, and not to the extent I have with our wedding. I was trying to Β write it down, and then I realized that it was easier for me to just say it.

So I’ve filmed a little storytime vlog where I tell you about how the proposal went down. By the way, it took me like 5 tries to get this right, cause my camera does this thing sometimes where after 2 minutes, it goes super blurry and you can’t see anything. Course I don’t notice, cause it doesn’t have one of those flippy things so you can see yourself on screen. I may look into getting a nice, decent camera. My phone is good, but for videos and things were I use my tripod, I need a camera.

Anyway, here’s the story of our proposal. Sorry about my silly camera which kept putting me out of focus.

    Mike was going to take me skating outdoors and propose on the rink, but I was sick the day he was planning to propose so we went out for dinner and he asked at the restaurant =)

    1. I love hearing proposal stories too! Thanks so much Cleia πŸ™‚
      Haha, it’s funny how sometimes you need to go to Plan B for the proposal ? A restaurant dinner sounds just as nice though πŸ˜€

      1. You’re very welcome! ? Haha it was nice, the restaurant owners gave us free champagne! I always joke now that he should “propose” again and see if we can get free desert ?? Don’t worry, we’ve never tried!
