We had been together for three years at the time. We'd talked about it a month or so before Valentine's day. It sounded like we were both ready so Valentine's was the night that we're going to become engaged. At least, that's what I thought. I was completely convinced. He was taking me to a very nice restaurant and we were dressing up for it. It was all adding up.
I took hours getting ready, I wanted to be stunning for him that night. He wore a suit and was looking fine! We went to the dinner and I could barely talk being so full of nervous excitement. He was nervous too. We finished dinner and desert but he didn't propose. We then left the restaurant and I felt disappointed. We went home and we started to get ready for bed.
I told myself it was a really nice valentine's night. He gave me a beautiful Valentine's day card and dinner was wonderful. I may have been hoping for a proposal but I told myself that it wasn't fair to expect it if he found he wasn't yet ready.
That night, as he was about to turn the lights out. He took a big deep breath and said, "I have something I want to ask you." I didn't realize the direction he was going at first. Then he reached for the pants he had worn to dinner and pulled something out the pocket. He then said, "I was too nervous to ask all night." He showed me the ring box and then got on one knee next to the bed. I said yes before he even ask the question, I was so excited and happy.
The most beautiful restaurant in the world couldn't have been more romantic than the way he asked me to marry him that night. Although the engagement ring was a beautiful gift, his being nervous enchanted me even more. It’s like he wasn’t sure I would say yes which made me feel like I was even more special to him than I knew. It was so charming and sweet.
My husband is my most wonderful gift to date. We've now been married for 4 years and are now expecting our first child. We are both so excited about the gift that is to arrive in only 5 months!

Customarily, a lovely gift for the occasion! Gift Away!
Art gifting is wonderful, but please be advised, it can't always be returned after matting & framing.
Very nice, but exercise caution in relationships or discuss with giftee first perhaps.
Fabulous, but most fitting for self gifting. Enjoy! You deserve it!
