"I Love You, But . . ."
by Nicole Bradley
It was my birthday and I had returned home from the doctor.
Yes, I had to go to the doctor on my birthday.
I was sitting at the dining room table wondering where my boyfriend was.
He comes through the door with a dozen roses in a vase. I was surprised.
He said, "Read the card." I said, " I will."
"Seriously, read the card." The card read, I love you but..."But what?" I asked with an attitude.
He dropped to one knee, looked me in the eye, brought one hand from behind his back and placed a beautiful, small box in my hand and said, "Will you marry me?"
I screamed, "Yes," and opened the box to the most beautiful ring which he removed and placed on my finger.
We've been married 6 years now.
Hot Air Balloon Proposalby Candice Lazar
My husband proposed to me on a hot air balloom overlooking Sonoma Valley wine country in California.
I wasn't surprised, as he had been behaving strangely the previous couple of days, but it was still lovely.
He kept the ballooning itself a secret until we got there.
We helped inflate the balloon just after sunrise and then went up.
He proposed in a bathrobe because it was still chilly outside, and I had accidentally left his fleece pullover on the airplane.
After the ride and proposal, we landed and then had champagne and brunch with the balloon pilot and tracking-car driver.
Romantic Proposal in the Parkby Carrie Middlemiss
I met my hubby while traveling Europe. I’m from Seattle and he’s from England.
We met at a pub in London. We spent several days together and met in Paris a week later for my birthday.
When back home, we spoke every day and Ben visited often. After 8 months, I came back to England. Ben took me to our special place; Hyde Park.
We were sitting in the park when a park attendant came to talk to us. We were laughing and thought this must be a hidden-camera show.
As the attendant began to leave, Ben asked him to take a picture of us. I stood up next to Ben and he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him.
Turns out the attendant was his friend and then four more of his "mates" wearing tuxedos, carrying a table, tablecloth, chairs, champagne and lobster ravioli (our first meal) then came up. We sat in the park celebrating with everyone!
