I'm taking her dad to lunch tomorrow to ask for her hand. If all goes well, I'm going to simulate one of our favorite dates together "carriage ride" amoungst other things. Then at the end on the lake front, I'm going to give her her valentines day card (we're celebrating it early because she has to work on the actual day). here's what the card will say. Feedback will be much appreciated. her name is repalced with ***

 

February 10th, 2007... Remember that day because it's going to be

 

an important one in the history of our relationship. may 12th,

 

2006 we met at mugshots and I knew the first time I met you that

 

you would be a significant part of my life in some way. June

 

12th, I realized what that feeling I'd been feeling was... Love.

 

I explained to you that I didn't want to just tell people that you were my

 

girlfriend, I wanted you to actually be my girlfriend. June 17th,

 

You realized what that feeling you'd been feeling was while we

 

were on a carriage ride, minutes later we were covering eachother

 

in powdered sugar. june 24th My 25th birthday... I love you, ya

 

know? june 27th We finally tell eachother what that feeling was.

 

August 8th You left for Virgina which started a new chapter of

 

our relationship, we learned to be close with out touch, hard but

 

it made us stronger. December 6th four months later we never have

 

to be apart again. December 7th Your birthday and the day we

 

welcome Maggie into our family. Back to the opening date... Today

 

is the next big important day for us, it's the day we celebrated

 

nine months together and valentines day a few days early... It's

 

also the day I looked you in the eye when you finished reading

 

this and told you I love you, then, I got on one knee and told

 

you I can't imagine a future that doesn't involve you as my wife.

 

I said "***, will you marry me?" and you said "_____". I love

 

you ***.

It sounds like you have a good plan, but just one piece of advise:

 

Your note really is a bit too long...keep it simple and focused.

 

Also, why is her dad coming along with you guys ??? I don't see what role he has in all this. Make sure he is no where nearby...you want to be alone when you proposed....

 

also, make sure you practice the words again and again, because you are going to be so nervous. I bet you'll be shaking...so practice saying what you are going to say and do several times, so on your special day, it comes out naturally and confidently.....

 

good luck....

he's not saying her dad is going to be with them, he's going to ask her father for her hand in marriage before he proposes. but the actual carriage ride is only going to be the two of them.
