Denice’s version

Henrik’s proposal was poetically innocently perfect for me.

I was working at my laptop on the dining room table one day when Henrik came home. As I was working, I had an awareness that he disappeared into the spare bedroom for quite some time which was odd, but I thought maybe he went in there to work or make a quiet phone call.

When he came out, he nonchalantly laid something next to my computer. It was a handmade card folded out of typing paper on top of a gift wrapped box. Being the wordsmith that he is, in the card he asked “would you like to tie the knot with me?” and said “I’ll ‘ring’ you later.” I opened the package and was holding a Boaters’ Knot Tying Kit. That was my exciting and unexpected marriage proposal.

Shortly after that we had a nice dinner and I went for a shower and as I was getting out of the shower he came in with my favorite cocktail in hand, a cantaloupe martini, and said he loved me and looked forward to taking care of me for the rest of his life.

I’m thinking I’m probably the luckiest girl in the world.
