The Best Birthday Present

Posted 30 Jun - 10 votes - 0 comments - 3418 views


It was my 27th birthday. I woke feeling what comes natural as you get a year older....not much and no different to a normal day! However as the morning went on I wondered silently to myself when I was going to receive my present from my boyfriend. Day goes on, phone calls, presents received from friends & family, and nothing from him. I started to think, but as fast as the thought came in, it went ('no way' I was thinking!).
Latter part of day - we had a gorgeous bday dinner celebration and drinks with family, then off to bed....and still no present. I had to ask. He told me all the way through the day he really had no idea what to get me so he will take me shopping another day. I didnt believe him, until the each hour went past and the clock struck 11pm!! I felt like a little child deprived of a present, and started sighing loud and was rather hurt and upset (my birthday was coming to an end). 11.55pm soon came, and I was almost asleep (not talking to him now because I was upset), and just as I was drifting off, a box was placed in my hands, light went on, and he was on his one knee on the floor next to the bed asking me to marry him!
I later found out he had all sorts of ideas riled up in his head, but he was too nervous to pull them off.
I still think that this proposal was very much him (left to last minute haha) and I wouldn't have it any other way!
