Kristen and I went to Greenport to celebrate my birthday. Little did she know I purchased a little gift for her instead.
October was unseasonably warm last year, it wasn’t coat weather but I needed to wear one to hide the ring box. On our way to the water Kristen jokingly slapped the clenched hand in my pocket asking me what was in there but I was able to shake her off. I hired a local photographer who, without Kristen knowing, had followed us down to the docks. I’ve been known to “fake propose” from time to time by getting down on one knee and then tying my shoes, so she was expecting another prank from me when I had asked her turn around and close her eyes while I did something. I took my coat off got down on one knee and asked her to turn around again and then I asked her to marry me.
