for us, we went to Savannah, GA for Valentine's day with our 2 kids and with another couple and their kid. we lived about an hour from there at the time in a military town (hubby was in the army then) and anyway, we were walking down the historic streets and stopped at a fountain (i still remember which intersection this particular fountain was at) and the couple we were with kind of occupied our children for a moment while we sat on the fountain and talked. i had that intuiton that it would happen that day, and felt it coming by the things he was saying. he then pulled out a ring and popped the question :) it was so sweet! i know, how cliche' to propose on V-Day LOL.

He called me from basic training and said that he didn't want to spend another day without me as his wife. He then told me to start making wedding plans for the day after he graduated basic training. That was nearly 9 years ago.

We are older, kids grown. I-widowed, him divorced. We met , fell in love, neither wanted marriage. Then I started re-thinking it & told him I wanted marriiage, but if he didn't, I needed to leave. He took me out on the dock over the river in back of his home, and said "I want you in my life for the rest of my life" I said, "yeah, so tell me something I don't already know". He said "I want you to be my wife." I was shocked and couldn't speak. It was not what I expected him to say, just couldn't get my mind around it. Then he said, "You're not speaking. Oh yeah, I forgot. I love you" First time he had said that to me. I still couldn't speak. He said,"You're trying to figure out how you can cater the wedding aren't you?" (I'm a chef) He was right, I was. I said "yes" Then he said, "You can't, you're going to be the bride" I broke out in tears. We were married 6 months later on the dock, with our kids as our attendants.

My DF & I were watching a movie, & he popped us a bowl of popcorn. As we got down to the bottom of the bowl, I felt something hard in my handful of popcorn. I looked, & there was the diamond ring I'd been admiring! I get stupid when I'm shocked, so I said, "What is this & why did I almost break my teeth on it?" DF said "What do you think it is, love?" I said "Are you asking what I think you're asking?" DF said "Are you saying yes?" Then he slipped the ring on my finger & kissed me. It was so silly, & so wonderful, & so very us.
