April 1, 2006. That was the day my husband proposed to me. Several things made it the best day, not just the fact that he proposed.
He later told me he hadn’t planned to propose this day. He just happened to have the ring on his person, but because of the conversation among our group and someone probing about marriage, he just did it – much to the shock of all of us at the table.
Further, because it was April Fool’s Day and my hubby is such a joker with a wild sense of humor, everyone kept calling me to verify whether it was true.
There is one more thing that made it the best day ever. That night, we came upon a fair as we were leaving dinner. We went to the fair and had a great time. It was a full circle moment, as our first time hanging out at length included a fair.
