Proposal to my Girlfriend
I was going to propose to my girlfriend when she came to visit from USA and I wanted it to be special, romantic and something that’s us.
I rented out a 1930’s cottage hidden in the woods/forest for us that was away from people and would be our own private place for 5 days.
We have talked about getting away from life and the world and just being with each other for a while now with no other distractions usually saying something like “Lets go live in a cabin in the woods”.
I thought this was the perfect setting for us to not only to get engaged at but also be away from everything and be able to get some much needed relaxation.
So here is the Cottage/Cabin
And here is the front door
It walks into the Kitchen
Which is connected to a Living room with a fireplace to set the romantic mood with a TV and sofa to relax and snuggle up on :)
With a beautiful bookshelf full of books and a few boardgames too
Behind the bookshelf is the king bed with fantastic views of the forest/woods
Also it has a big spa bath for a romantic soak with views of the forest/woods too.
It also has a small outdoor setting for breakfast or tea in the morning.
And some local wildlife too which were friendly and not afraid to be close (Kookaburra’s)
Once I got into the cabin it was dressed to be romantic with warmth, light music and a cheese and meat platter with some pate and some 800+ fairy lights strung up outside the window to the bedroom.
I had decided to propose to her in the bedroom as it was too cold outside to do it so i hooked up the fairylights to a remote controlled power board so i could turn them on and off with a remote.
Once it was all set it was dusk and I went and picked my beautiful girlfriend up who was all dressed up and looked amazing (She always does).
It was at dusk and we had a beautiful drive up the winding mountain where the cabin was and had lovely ferns and forest all around us.
I got her to close her eyes and slowly went down the driveway then got her to open her eyes to see all of the cottage/cabin and told her that I have taken her to our cabin in the woods and we will be alone and away from the world for 5 days together :)
She loved it all and enjoyed the platters of food and it felt so cozy and romantic.
I then went under the bed and grabbed the hidden ring box and remote and called her in.
As she was sanding there I had the remote in my pocket and got down on one knee and opened up the ring box to show her the ring and hit the on button on the remote and the forest came alive with the beautiful lights all around and I told her how much i loved and wanted to wake up next to her for the rest of my life and asked her will she marry me :)
She said yes and loved everything that was setup and we had a fantastic evening and days before we had to come back home.
It was perfect and exactly how I had imagined and planned in my head I am so happy and so lucky to be with her and I can’t wait to start the Visa paper work to have her come down here to be my beautiful wife.
I love her with every fiber of my being and would do anything for her it’s true love and she is my best friend i couldn’t be any more luckier than I am now :)
