Just popped it last night. I decided to go cliche, mostly because that would surprise her the most. We got a night off from our son so I took her out to the restaurant where we had our first date. I "accidently" went the wrong way home, stopped at a park and asked while watching the sunset.

Got down on one knee, vomited in my mouth, looked her in the eye and said "This is as good as you'll get".

I did the whole proposal on a quiet beach during sunset routine. Worked very well!

Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware. We were camping for her birthday. Had a beautiful morning on the beach and I wanted to pop the question there. I had the opportunity but there was too many people around. The Park is a decommissioned military post from WWII so there are these massive concrete lookout towers. We climbed to the top overlooking the dunes and the Cape. I got down on one knee and asked on her birthday. She kinda knew it was coming, just not where. I did pick out the ring myself. Kinda cool that we can always go back to that exact spot.

So, I bought the ring the other day, pretty nervous at the prospect right now, haha.

Christmas Eve 1968...opening gifts with my Mom, brother and sister-in-law and their two daughters. The three adults knew what was coming...in fact, the diamond in the ring was my Mom's! I had gotten a shoe box full of rocks from the garden, put the ring in the box and wrapped it up real pretty and Christmas-y. When she opened the box, she had to dig around to find the ring...and then she started crying. We were married in August 1969...almost forty-three years ago.

Don't sweat the minutiae!

Good luck. I was nervous too. I don't think you can mess up a proposal...especially when you both want it. The hard part is not screwing things up for the whole rest of your lives; Good luck and congratulations!

On a trip to Duluth, I drove to Enger Tower instead of my friends place. She was really anxious suddenly and didn't want to leave the car. It was late fall and pretty cold. As we approached the tower we could hear teenagers swearing and being jackasses. Then I got nervous! They left as we ascended the staircase and at the top, with a great view over Duluth and Lake Superior, I got down on one knee and popped the question. 1 year anniversary in 3 weeks.

Just do it when it feels right. I had a plan laid out and everything, then one night we were watching fireworks (with a full moon brightening up the sky) from the roof of our townhome on the fourth of July drinking beer. I went down to refresh our beer and the thought hit me to propose right there, instead of how I had planned it. So I did, and of course she said yes.

The funny thing is is the way I was planning it would have been less special in her eyes. So in the end, go with your gut!

Not to mention having the ring was like sitting on a hot coal. It took a lot of control for me to not just give it to her.
