Marriage Proposals

cigar band marriage proposal ideasI love to buy my wife a little gift every now and then nothing too big and wowing but, something that would catch the heart. Since Christmas was just a few days ago, I thought she wouldn’t be expecting anything so, I went out and bought a new necklace to match her new pendant I gave her in her stocking.

I went in our bedroom and opened her jewelry box and placed the necklace next to the pendant. Then I saw a cigar band, and I smiled remembering the day I gave it to her.

I took off of work early to surprise her by bringing flowers to her work. As I got to her floor all of her co-workers already knew I was coming and stood and looked over their cubes watching as I walked toward her.

I stood at her door way and said what would you say if I told you that I have fallen in love with you. She turned seen the flowers and started crying tears of joy and smiled. Then she said, “If you’re in love with me, I guess I’m going to have to marry you.”

I smiled and remembered that I bought a cigar that day to celebrate a promotion I received at work. I reached in and slid the band off and got on one knee. As I did, the “AWWW’s” and “Oh My God’s” echoed off the walls and her eyes got very big. I looked at her and said, “From the first day I saw you, I knew you were the one. So I decided to get close to you and get to know you as much as I could. Here one and a half years later I want you to be the one I spend the rest of all of eternity with. Lisa you are my soul mate and I believe we were meant for each other, Lisa will you be my wife?”

She started crying, and then she said yes and I slid the cigar band on her finger, and it fit as if, it was meant for her finger. As I got off my knee to hug my new finance, the cheers of happiness and joy seemed to flow through the entire building. I then pick her up in my arms and carried her to the elevator, yes just like in officer and a gentleman, which is one of her favorite movies I might add.

I then heard her call my name from the kitchen which made me snap back to reality, I smiled and closed the box and went to my wife and gave her a kiss and told her that I love her more than she would ever know!
