My boyfriend and I had been going out for 1 year. One Summer night in July, after we had just finished up at a family picnic he suggested that we do something different, assuming that „different” was just a night at the mall or maybe a movie.
My premonition looked to be right-on when we pulled into a mini-shopping plaza. Confused I asked him what was going on because he looked a little nervous. He said nothing was wrong but we were meeting someone here.
Then he started telling me how much he loved me and how he was so grateful to have me in his life. I was even more confused when I saw the person that we were waiting for drive up in a van labeled „balloon services”. My boyfriend said, “okay, let’s go,” and we got in the van and drove to an open field about 20 minutes away.
I continued to ask what was up but the only reply that I received was, “You’ll see.” Finally, as we entered the field, my question was answered; in front of me stood a hot air balloon and my boyfriend asking if I was ready. About half way into the ride at 3500 ft. my boyfriend proposed to me.
It was the most romantic, and totally unexpected proposal I could of ever dreamed of, it was perfect. Of course I said YES, and we will be getting married next year.
