From The Bride:

Here’s the long version, long, because I’m a sucker for details 😉

It was a rainy Tuesday in August. Perhaps the rainiest it had been all summer. I was off that day, because Tuesdays are my day off, and it was also my birthday. The night before our walk-in closet had come crashing down (side note: one of the most terrifying sounds we’ve ever heard), so I had a feeling my day “off” would now be consumed with errands and closet-putting-back-together.

We started our morning with a run down to the water. It’s a road filled with huge, expensively gorgeous homes. We ended up getting drenched. The sky literally opened up on us 1/2 way through the run. But the feeling was refreshing, although our phones didn’t quite agree. Added to the day’s errand list: a trip to verizon.

And I was right. My day would become consumed with errands and re-hanging clothes on our newly mounted clothing rack. I followed it up with a little hospital work from home and dabbled in some video editing. Needless-to-say, I was beginning to feel my inner-bratty child breaking through because the day itself wasn’t anything spectacular.

When we arrived to my parents for an early dinner, we hadn’t even made it through the garage door when Jason got called into work (this was when he was still employed by Comcast). Let’s just say my inner bratty 5-year old took over, practically stomping her feet and rolling her eyes as she crossed her arms against her chest. He leaned in to kiss my forehead, and with a soft “I’m sorry, I’ll come back as soon as I can” he was gone.

So I was moody….very, very moody.

Dad made my favorite mac and cheese (amongst other delicious grub), and we talked over dinner. I could tell they were trying their hardest to raise my spirits (and the mac and cheese almost did it). About an hour and a half later, we cleaned up the kitchen and mom forced me to pack Jason dinner leftovers (remember, I was still being a cranky 5-year old). I needed a ride home and asked if they’d drive me back to my apartment and stay a bit so I could show them the final cut of the wedding video I’d been working on. They agreed, and off we went.

When we pulled into the parking lot, I saw Jason’s car parked in the same spot it been when we left. I grumpily remarked, “he took my car to work all the way in Millersville!” As we began making our way down the path however, I noticed my car parked, and angrily remarked “he’s done with work and didn’t even come back to the house!” Now I was really heated. Of course, my first thought was I’d walk in on him planted firmly on the sofa playing video games or watching baseball.

When we finally entered the building, mom realized she’d “left something in the van” and ran back to get it, leaving dad holding the door. So I walked up the three flights of stairs, only to discover the front door to our apartment was locked. I gave it a couple good thuds, only to have it unanswered. As I began walking back downstairs to meet my mom who had my apartment door keys, I hear the apartment door open up behind me.

I turned and said “why didn’t you come back to the house! What are you doing here?” Looking a bit flustered, he said “just come inside.”

As the door swung fully open, I found myself walking onto a hallway full of flower petals and candles. Of course my mind starts ticking away, desperately trying to figure out what was going on. Jason always told me that he’d propose on a day that I’d least expect it. Being that I’m head over heels in love with him, of course I hoped he’d pop the question any day and everyday, but never thought he’d do it on my rainy,Tuesday, errand-filled birthday.

I rounded the corner, his leftover food still in my hands, and found our coffee table adorned in petals, flowers, champagne and CAKE!

As you see in the photo above, the cake has a box with a ring. I looked to him and said, “now that’s a cruel joke” not even noticing the small ivory ring box next to him. We both sat as I drooled over the cake, figuring this was just a special way of celebrating me turning 27.

I honestly don’t remember his words after that. It’s more like a silent film. His mouth was moving, then his hands presented me with a box, and I was sitting (disheveled and feeling horrible for being mad at him) in shock. I caught him looking over my shoulder, and turned to find my sister on the laptop behind me, watching the entire event take place.

(Cue the waterworks!)

I’d told Jason months before that I was sad that Caitlin would likely not be around like I was for her on the day she got engaged. I told him that out of everyone, she’d be the one person I really wanted around…and he remembered.

(Cue the comic relief)

As I lifted her (in the laptop) off the back of the couch, she started yelling “Wait, what’s going on? I can’t see anything! What just happened! Go into the light!”

She had no idea he was going to propose! He’d set her up thinking we were just going to have our birthday cake together (for those of you that don’t know, she is my identical twin sister).

Okay, okay, this is getting long. Let me sum up the remainder of the night: parents enter; laughter and crying continues; I discover he’d taken the entire day off and wasn’t really called back into work; we ate cake; Cait changes my FB status to “engaged;” and we continue celebrating with champagne, love, family and laughter!

(…and about 15 minutes later, our newly hung closet came crashing down…again)
