Love Can Move Mountain (Books)

| Romantic | December 24, 2013

(It’s my fourth Christmas together with my boyfriend, and we decide to open our presents to each other simultaneously. We’re both huge outdoors geeks. I’ve bought him a guide on the history of Canada’s national parks that I found one day, and knew he’d love. We don’t ask each other what we want for holidays to keep the element of surprise.)

Boyfriend: “Alright! Ready, set, go!”

(We both open our presents, freeze, and stare at each other. He has gotten me the exact same book.)

Boyfriend: “Oh. My. God. One sec, wait right there.”

(He comes back into the room a minute later, gets down on one knee and pulls out a ring.)

Boyfriend: “I was going to plan a really romantic way to give this to you, but I don’t think we’ll ever have better proof than this that we’re perfect for each other. Will you marry me?”

(Of course I said yes. We’ve been married for two years now, and everyone always asks why we have two copies of the same book on our coffee table!)
