A Big Question
Pete proposed to me on a trip to Boston during his Spring Break from Law School. We flew in and had a fantastic first evening visiting Sam Adams Brewery and tasting the local fare. The next morning he got up before me and took a trip down the street to bring me coffee in bed. When he returned he distracted me with the coffee and when I turned around he was on one knee asking me to marry him. The timing was especially perfect because we planned to visit my sister and brother in law in New Hampshire on the second half of our trip. We don't get to see each other often so it was very special to be able to celebrate with them.... [read more]
A Big Question
Around the beginning of May 2013, John started putting a buzz in my ear that he would like to go to the aquarium sometime soon. A lot of me knew something was up, but I tried to stay calm and not think too far into it. So Saturday, May 18th, we headed to the aquarium for an 11am show that he "really wanted to see." Being that I am not a morning person and really not a morning person on weekends, I found it odd and suspicious that he would have me up and out of the house by 10am. Found out later that he had been ready to go since around 6 (as he couldn't sleep most of the night). So we get to the show after dropping Macy at doggie day care. The show is all about predators and they have divers in the shark tank explaining each of the predators. (John decided to try and start dating me after I went shark fishing with him and his friends one night). Towards the end of the show, the divers come on and say they found a treasure map and they need help reading it from a volunteer in the audience...John's hand immediately goes up. For those of you that know John, know that he is extremely shy and quiet and WOULD NEVER volunteer in front of 50+ people. At that moment, I knew exactly what was happening. He walks up, grabs the microphone, and the divers press a sign to the glass that said "Lindsay Hance, Will you Marry Me?" and I awkwardly walk up to the front as he gets on one knee. We walked around the aquarium for probably 30 minutes longer and so many random people would come up and congratulate us. We ended the trip there at the gift shop and bought a coffee mug to remember our special moment.
As the day went on, we went out to the beach to see some friends (who didn't know) and it was so much fun surprising them and spending time with them. That afternoon, we ate at Wahoo's for lunch and then went back to go paddleboarding and lay out with friends. As the day went on, I started asking him what we should do that evening. He couldn't give me a straightforward answer, so in my head I thought he just wanted to go home and relax. As we started our drive home, he quickly turned off to a hotel and said, "Why don't we hang here for a little." I was really confused....we ended up walking into a beautiful oceanfront room decorated by my friend, Alyson. He had her pack clothes for me and make the room special for when we got there. This, I was truly surprised about! We went to a nice dinner that night at the Don Cesar to celebrate and then enjoyed all of Sunday at the beach. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend and feel so blessed to have had such an amazing time with my fiance!
A Big Question
I was exhausted after a week long work trip and had just landed at our local airport. When I walked passed security Scott was there holding a huge sign that read “Dana Rowzee” (my maiden name) on it. I laughed because he looked like a chauffeur, he was just missing a fantastic hat. When I walked closer to him he flipped the sign to read “Dana Wilson?” and got down on one knee in Jackson Medgar Evers Airport. Queue the tears and me asking a million times if he was serious. He was! My coworker knew about it and filmed the whole thing.
