Welcome to the Chocolate and Roses blog hop and giveaway!
May 5th through the 9th
Thank you for joining me on this blog hop and giveaway. We have all decided to tell you a story of our most memorable time some gave us chocolate and/or roses.
As cliche at it may sound the most memorable time I received roses was when my husband proposed to me. We were having a combined party for his son's fifth birthday and our son's second. Since it was a birthday party for our children there were lots of family member there. We had just finshed having cake and ice cream and I my mother and I were cleaning up the kitchen while the kids played with all the new presents. It had been a few minutes and I had asked someone where he had gone. No one seemed to know.
I heard the front door shut which was strange because we never use that door and was going to go investigate when he walked into the kitchen with a dozen pink roses in his hand.
We had been hinting about getting married but never really discussed it seriously. He held the flowers out to me with a ring box in his other hand. I was actually speachless (me who can't stop talking for five seconds). He asked if I would marry him and put the ring on my finger. I'm not sure who was crying more. Him, me, or my mother.
After I was done crying and could compose myself again everyone wanted to know if that was a "yes"? I said of course it is. I couldn't believe I was finally marrying the man I loved and wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
We have been married for ten years this June and now have three wonderful children. While things haven't always been perfect we have survived and will continue on.
While I would love to share some pictures with you sadly when I switched computers I seem to have misplaced a lot of my pictures and cannot find any of them from that day. While I can't share those pictures with you I can share this one. I recently took the kids on vacation for ten days and my husband stayed home. When we got back the day after Easter, these were waiting on the kitchen table for me along with Easter treats for the kids.
