New Year’s Eve is an exciting time for everyone. It signifies new beginnings, a fresh start, and a celebratory approach to a new calendar year.
For me, though, this past New Year’s Eve was extra exciting.
My boyfriend informed me that we were going to have a relatively low key New Years Eve – he invited a few of his closest friends over to hang out in the shop and have a few drinks with. He told to me to come to his place around 8, and so I did.
Just as I was getting ready to leave, he texted me saying he needed some help out in the barn. He’s a cattle farmer, and it’s calving season, so I didn’t think anything of it. I told him I would meet him out in the barn as soon as I got there.
When I arrived at his house, I headed over to the barn. He met me at the door and he started playing one of our favourite songs, Autograph by Dallas Smith.
I actually had a hunch I was walking into a proposal, but once I heard this song playing, it secured my suspicions.
Blaine asked me to get one of his cows some grain. I opened up the grain bin where it is kept, and he had the ring sitting in a bucket. I whirled around to look at him and he asked me to be his wife.
It still feels surreal saying that.
I hadn’t really given much thought to what exactly my proposal would entail, but it was absolutely perfect and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. It was personal to Blaine and to us, and that’s all I wanted.
The ring is perfect, too.
This past New Year’s Eve was certainly one I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
