A Surprise Pride and Prejudice Engagement
(Note: This isn’t me)
See? This is a tailor-made proposal. Not some “big screen of basketball game nonsense. This person took into account his girlfriend’s pastimes and favourite things in the world, knew how close to the family she was and engineered the perfect engagement proposal, without a doubt managing to make sure this would please her (surely her mother and sisters would know).
This is how you do big gestures.
This is so awesome I can’t even.
Also, the look on her face as she came into the house. Hehehehehehe!
STILL THE MOST ADORABLE THING EVER
These are my grandparents. They were high school sweethearts and they have been married for over 65 years. Within the past year, my grandpa got sick and developed Alzheimer’s, so he lives in a nursing home now. My grandma goes to see him almost everyday, but each time she walks in he gets so surprised and excited and relieved by her presence. You can just hear the joy in his voice. It’s one of the saddest and most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced. I hope that one day I can find a marriage like theirs. They are the two most selfless people I know, and such a wonderful and pure example of love.
