Before my husband and I were married, we dated long distance.  One weekend I took a Friday off work and drove up Thursday night to spend the weekend with my honey.

We are both teachers, and he told me to come to his school on Friday and have lunch with him since he had to work.  Right at the beginning of lunch, he got a call on his radio to come outside and help with lunch duty.

As we walked outside toward his middle school students, we saw a bunch of them in a line with their backs to us, and I had no idea what they were doing.

When we got out to the field, his 6th graders all turned around and were holding big signs in front of them.  The first thing I saw was that it spelled out my name, and I wasn’t quite sure why… then I read the rest of it, and it said, “Will you marry me?”  Right there in front of the whole school, he then got down on his knee and told me he couldn’t live without me and put a beautiful ring on my finger.

After that I found out he had taken the rest of the day off, and he took me to a nearby park to have a romantic picnic lunch with wine and cheese and all that good stuff.  It’s been a wonderful and amazing few years of marriage since then.
