My fiancé decided to propose to me this past Christmas to give me something happy to think about during the holiday. My dad had passed away in June, and it would be my first Christmas without him. My fiancé knew I was having a really rough time. So, on Christmas morning, he saved the ring as the last gift to open. It was in this beautiful wooden box, which happened to be a trick box. After I fumbled with the box for a while, he finally told me to open it from the bottom. I opened the box and was so surprised! He got down on one knee and said, "It's an engagement ring" instead of saying, "Will you marry me?" He was so nervous that I waited for him to ask the question, but I ended up asking him, "Are you asking me to marry you?" He said that he was proposing, and of course I said yes!
