Proposal Story

I'm linking up with Emily at Baby Berry for a proposal story

the proposal

Here is our story:

It was a hot day in July of 2007 and we actually spent ALL day out at the beach and on the boat.  While we were out there were porpoises coming right up to our boat and it was so cool!

We even had Sugar on the boat with us :)

After a long day we had planned to go to dinner for Chance's parents' anniversary, or at least that's what they told us it was for.  We got all dressed and ready to go and a limo came to pick us up at the house.  Chance was bringing his guitar and said it was because he "wrote a song for his parents" that he wanted to sing for them.  So, I thought nothing of it.

We got in the limo and headed to Alligator Soul in downtown Savannah.  The dinner was wonderful!!! They had the BEST strawberry daiquiri ever too!!!

After dinner, Chance pulls out his guitar and says "I'm going to sing a song that I wrote for my parents and then I'm going to sing a song that I wrote for you, Amy".  I was very confused... Then Chance started singing...

as he was singing, I'm sitting here thinking "aww, that's such a sweet song for them (his parents)".  Then all of a sudden he says my name in the song and I got REALLY confused for a second... I was thinking "why would he put my name in a song he wrote for his parents"... but then I realized he was actually singing to me. 

Then it happened... the end of the song said "Amy will you marry me?"... AHHHH!!!! I was SOOOO excited, but so shocked!!! I immediately started crying when he put the guitar down and started to get on his knees, I threw my hands up and covered my face, while Chance dropped the ring box under the table!!! haha! I didn't see that part though because I was too busy crying in my hands.  When I opened my eyes, he had the ring right in front of me.  Of course I screamed "yes!!!" and put the ring on :)

As you can see, Chance's mom and sister were just as shocked as I was!!! They had no idea either!

And here we are with one of the managers of the restaurant who really hooked us up that night.  He even turned the music off in the restaurant so that Chance could sing his song.

After leaving dinner, we stopped by the house of some friends of the family to share the news.  I remember texting like everyone in my phone!!! The next day I drove back to Warner Robins and ended up losing my voice from telling the story SOOO many times! :)

It was definitely a night I will never forget!!!!!!  I love my husband so so so so much!!!! God definitely blessed me when he sent me Chance.
