All Good 2009 will always be remembered for one thing, it’s the place I asked Laurel to marry me. It was on Friday, close to sundown. I had chickened out/drank too much beer on the first night and didn’t ask her. I had been carrying the ring around for a few days trying to find the best time to “pop the question”. It’s not like I didn’t know what the answer was going to be, I just wanted the surprise to be perfect. We had talked about marriage and the ring before so I knew that she wanted to pick out her own engagement ring.
But that’s no fun! I wanted a surprise proposal.
So I found the perfect ring on Etsy, it’s a traditional solitaire diamond shape but artfully cast sound of sterling silver. I loved the mix of traditional shape with unconventional material. She did too!
So on Friday night in front of Erin, Kevin, Mark, Sarah,her brother Adam, and all of All Good I got down on one knee and asked my best friend to spend the rest of her life with me.
There was also music and stuff at this concert…
