Home Proposal Idea: Before I Leave Proposal

Candles on the stairs

My boyfriend was about to be deployed to Iraq, so on one of his last nights home, we went out for a nice dinner.

When we arrived home, he asked where my dog was and I told him the basement. I went downstairs to get my dog and saw the stairs lit up with candles on each step. As I walked down the stairs I saw numerous different arrangements of all of my favorite flowers placed over the entire room.

The table was set with champagne, glasses and a picture of us. The best part was a soft teddy bear sitting on the sofa. I thought all of this was a good-bye present until he got down on his knee and asked me to marry him.

Even though he’s half way across the world right now, I have this great night and the beautiful ring to remind me of him!
