90/366 – Engagement

My boyfriend proposed yesterday, for real this time!

He convinced me to go for a ride on his motorcycle despite the threat of rain, and we drove to the spot where we went on our first ride together. It is a little lookout that looks over the Kentucky River, with a stone bench/fence arching around it. He had a friend drive up there before us and put his guitar, a notebook we had been writing letters in and mailing to each other, and some fake rose petals that we had been mailing back and forth as a joke. When we got off the bike he sang one of my favorite songs (called blue eyes, which is perfect since I have blue eyes), and then he had me read a letter that he had written in the book. At the end of the letter it said that I should look up, and when I did, he was on one knee in front of me with the ring in his hands. I said yes of course. And then not long after a photographer friend of ours popped out of the woods across the street where he had been hiding and taking pictures of the whole thing. The rain held out while we were there, but it started up as soon as we finished everything up, and poured on the ride home. I couldn’t stop smiling and shaking, it was so perfect. It still hasn’t entirely set in yet, but I couldn’t be any happier 🙂

88/366 – Diamond Knuckles

Yesterday I worked from 8-3, and then got in my boyfriend’s car and drove 13 hours to Lexington. I didn’t have much chance for a picture so this was what I could manage.

My boyfriend and I joked about him proposing with brass knuckles, and yesterday he surprised me with this. Which is fake proposal number….6?

39/366 – Fake

Chris, my boyfriend, had joked that he was going to propose to me through mail. He had also joked that he was going to give me a bunch of fake proposals before the real deal. So, he had mailed me an early Valentines day present that I opened today, and inside was this lovely plastic ring with a note that said “will you?”

25/365 – Lexington Legends

What a night! I went to the Lexington Legends game tonight because my friend was proposing and he wanted me to take some pictures. It was such a cute proposal, and I am so glad I got to capture it! Plus, it was an absolutely perfect evening for a baseball game, the weather couldn’t have been better.
