Birthday Proposal

Time for an Etsy Blogger Blog Carnival (say that 5 times fast) and the topic is to blog about a favorite birthday memory. Hands down my favorite birthday memory is from just 3 years ago…


Hubby made dinner reservations at one of my fave downtown Austin restaurants and when we walked outside the restaurant there was a horse drawn carriage waiting for us. Hubby is actually a pretty romantic guy (yes I used “romantic” and “guy” in the same sentence…there is hope) so I just thought this was part of my birthday surprise. As we were trotting along and the sun was setting, Hubby asked me to be part of his family (how cute is that). I think my first response was “are you serious?” and then he pulled out the ring and I knew he was talking business!


I feel a little bad for future birthdays because how in the world can they compete with a proposal?! This so would have been my cake topper if I had seen it while I was planning...
