Well... We had talked a lot about getting married, so it wasn't a matter of if, but when I was going to ask her. I racked my brain trying to think of a really creative way to ask her, but the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to do something that would; A: Surprise her, and 2: was something that was special for us. As I was coming up with ideas I realized it was going to be impossible to surprise her, if I planned something special she would of been suspicious, and not surprised.
I bought the ring, and decided the sooner the better. On Monday, April 22, while Amelia was at work I prepared. I walked to the store and bought a bottle of Champagne. I came home and made some chocolate covered strawberries. I packed the strawberries, and Champagne on ice and hid them in the bedroom. Amelia came home from work, and after dinner we, started up a movie. As the movie started I sat behind her and rubbed her shoulders and neck. As I worked my way down her left arm, I grabbed her hand, pulled the ring out and asked... and she said yes.
