My fiancé had just gone on leave from the Army and was planning on staying with me for three weeks. He had told me on August 1st I need to keep my calendar open because he had a fun day planned. He wouldn't tell me a single bit of information regarding where we were going or what we were doing. The only hint he gave me was that I was to wear comfortable clothing.
Friday came and he was very excited and kept checking the weather. At 12:00 we went out to lunch and then got in the car and started driving. I wasn't allowed to look at the GPS and I had to keep my eyes closed for the entire ride. We drove for almost 45 minutes and when the car stopped he said I could open my eyes. I was looking at an empty grass field; I turned my head and saw a huge sign that said skydiving! I was thrilled because I had always wanted to go.
Fast forward to jumping out of the plane. I was on my way down and my tandem partner told me to look at the ground. I didn't think anything of it, but then I saw a huge sign on the grass. It said "Lindsey, Will you Marry Me?" My jaw dropped and I had a huge grin on my face. When I landed he quickly came over and dropped to one knee, and asked "Lindsey will you make me the happiest man, and marry me?" I think I said, "Yes!" without even hesitating.
