How It Was


Chelsea was about four steps ahead of me (as always) and I felt my window of opportunity slipping away as I fumbled for the ring in my blazer pocket. I said “Chelsea hold on a second” as soon as he turned around I got down on one knee, voice trembling and said: “Chelsea, will you marry me?”. Before I could finish she grabbed the ring and started crying.


The entire night I kept thinking to myself what if he proposes? He had a few opportunities earlier in the night so I decided that he wasn’t going to do it. Reaction? Of course I told him yes, he was my best friend and person I want to spend the rest of my life with. All I can say is tell them yes if you find this person. Even if you are dying of fear, even if you are sorry later, because whatever you do, you will be sorry all the rest of your life if you say no.


Love Story

How we decided that we should
be together forever!

This is the story of our proposal. It was the Friday before Thanksgiving and had planned to ask Chelsea to marry me. I took her to dinner at the first resturant we had dinner at when Chelsea moved to Columbus.

After dinner I took her to see a play at Ohio Theatre, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The entire time I kept thinking about when I would eventually pop the question and I began to get nervous. The nervousness never seemed to dissapate as the evening went on, I was running out of time as we were walking back to the truck and as we were passing the statehouse I decided I had to take a leap of faith. I had to ask Chelsea to stop because she was 12 steps ahead of me as usual. When she stopped, I got down on one knee, hands shaking, voice trembling and said: “Chelsea, will you marry me, please?”. She was confused, surprised, and then crying. She ripped the ring from my hands and replied: “Of course, I will!”
