I was sorting through my *ahem* incredibly organized box o'pictures (Ok fine, it's just a white photo box from Hobby Lobby with pictures from the last 5 years thrown in) and found a CD of pictures from our trip to Boston last April (Ryan ran the marathon!). Also on the CD was the video of Ryan proposing to me, so I thought I'd throw it up here in the interest of full disclosure...and because watching it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I think that I am way lucky to have this on video, because my family wasn't there to see in a way, I could make them feel like they were there.

I did a post on how Ryan proposed to me and our trip to Boston here. Maybe I'll repost it on our engage-a-versary, but for now, if you're interested, follow the link to see the whole story.

His best friend Dane took the video...the first 20-30 seconds are seemingly non-eventful, but Dane's commentary is priceless!

You can't really see it in the video, but Ryan asked me to marry him right on the start line of the Boston Marathon....after he ran the race earlier that day and PR'd. He's so talented and he ran so well that day. When asked how it felt to get down on one knee after racing 26.2 miles (!! And I think a half marathon hurts!), Ryan replied with, "it hurt."

Needless to say, it was perfect (for us at least, I'm sure non-running geeks wouldn't have been interested), and I never in a lifetime could have dreamed it up myself. Bravo handsome man!

I love hearing engagement how did your partner ask you to marry him or her?


  1. How amazing that you have the moment on video! The one thing I would have wanted to add to my perfect proposal in a garden in Prague is having someone there to take pictures of us together.

  2. How cool!! The starting line of the Boston Marathon is a pretty important place for most runners. That's an amazing story and so great that you have video.

  3. Thats really awesome! Thanks so much for sharing your special moment with us! Mr. Milk proposed this past Christmas morning. I thought it was all a joke initially and even said "yeah right!" when he knelt down...not my brightest moment :)

  4. I'm so jealous you have documentation of your engagement! That is so awesome, and definitely something special you'll have to look back at forever!

  5. You are incredibly lucky to have this recorded. It is amazing. Thank you for sharing this!

  6. how amazing - talk about filling a day with memorable events! and how sweet you have the video. It's far enough away that you can still have your own memories of how it went and what he said but the moment is captured forever.


Hearing from you all makes my day!
