I Propose a Change

I Propose a Change

A wedding proposal should be one of the most memorable events of your life. It should be special.  Maybe you want your family and friends there.  Maybe you want it a private affair between the two of you.  Maybe you want to trip over a wadded up bunch of weather-beaten AstroTurf.  But probably not. 

That’s why this future groom enlisted his How-2-Home friends to help him jazz up his balcony before he popped the big question.  They decked the whole place out in greenery and lights for a romantically magical look, and his fiancee was thrilled!  Check out the link to see how to make the faux-box shrubs.

Funny proposal story: one of my best friends was proposed to at midnight on New Year’s Eve in the middle of the skating rink at Rockefeller Center.  How romantic right?  Problem was, she was planning on breaking up with the guy.  Ruh-roh.  So, as thousands of strangers skated around them clapping and hooting, she smiled a big smile, nodded a huge nod, and hissed “We’ll talk about it,” through gritted teeth. Nobody was the wiser.  Except for the poor guy!

    Lol on the marriage proposal. And on anonymous’s reply above mine. I so identify with the proposal – had something similar happen to me – I was breaking up and he was tearfully proclaiming love. Awk ward!

    Wow. I don’t love the ‘after’ either but don’t be so hateful about it!

    I hardly EVER delete negative comments, after all, everyone is entitled to an opinion, but that was extremely rude. If you have nothing constructive to offer, don’t bother. Like it or not, you have to admit it’s way better than it was.
