How Lee Proposed

I'm participating in Kelly's Korner's Show us Your Life's proposal stories :) So here's how Lee proposed:

Lee is a little bit younger than me, so when I graduated and got a job he was still in school. He was an MIS major and ALWAYS had projects and group meetings. Plus, he was the president of a club in that major that had meetings every Tuesday. So for his last year and half of college we hardly ever saw each other. It was tough.

One Tuesday night his meeting got cancelled so we were going to have a date. We didn't see each other much during the week so I was pretty excited. When I got home from work that day he met me at the top of the stairs at my apartment with my favorite flowers:
He had cooked dinner for me and had it waiting...I think it was chicken cordon bleu...not the kind you buy frozen in the box (not that there's anything wrong with that stuff, it's delicious...I have some in the freezer now!), but he had actually made it! I know he's made that for me before, I THINK that's what he made that night!

It was a gorgeous day (April 3, 2007) was warm outside but not hot, and the days were starting to get longer. So while we were eating I said we should go get ice cream and eat it at the park (which worked out PERFECTLY since that's what he was planning on doing).

We were heading to get ice cream (listening to a CD of sweet songs he had made me...he gave it to me later that night and it was labeled "Marry Me Mix") and he said he was really full so why didn't we just go to the park and walk around a little while. We got there and walked around a little bit and then sat on a bench in front of the river and were just talking. The sun started to set and he said "You know I love you more than anything in the world," to which I responded "Yeah I know" (haha). Then he got up and said "I brought you here to ask you a question," got down on his knee and asked me to marry him. I don't think I ever actually said yes now that I think about it! I was just crying and nodding!

And we DID got get ice cream when we left the park!

I don't have any pictures from that night, but here's the first one I have of us after we got engaged:
Easter 2007

So that's our proposal story! I think he did a good job ♥
