Faini Proposal Stories~ Congratulations Carlye & Darren
October 13, 2017
As told by Carlye:
Darren and I met through an online dating site, and dated for over a year before we started talking about our future together. Both Darren and I wanted the ring to be a surprise, but I also wanted to be able to help narrow down the selection a bit. I decided the best way to do that was to have my twin sister take us each shopping separately. I had a wonderful time trying on rings and finding out what styles I liked with my sister's help.
This summer, Darren and I were on our way to a family campout with all my mom's family for the weekend. According to my sister, we "had" to stop by my parent’s farm to pick up a few things to bring with camping. After we got the car loaded up, Darren asked for a tour of the farm. I was anxious to get to the camping trip, so I tried to speed up the tour, but he insisted on continuing the tour in detail.
At one point, we stood on a hill overlooking the pasture, and he put his arm around me. It was a perfect temperature out, the sky was super blue, and there were fluffy white clouds in the sky. We stood there for a little while soaking in the view, and he asked, "Do you remember a couple weeks ago when I asked you why we work (as a couple) and I didn't really give you my answer? Well I wrote down some of my thoughts in a letter for you to read." By that point, I had a pretty good idea what was going on since he isn’t one to verbalize or write down his thoughts and feelings. I asked if he wanted me to read it out loud and started reading.
When I finished the letter, I looked up as he pulled out ring box. He got down on one knee and asked me to marry him which I quickly and excitedly responded with a “Yes!” His hands were shaking slightly as he slid a gorgeous ring onto my left ring finger. We kissed a few times and exchanged some I love you's. After a few more minutes together on the hill at the farm, we then left to go see my immediate family members and called his family to tell them the news.
