Happy Valentine's Day!

These are the flowers hubby gave to me upon our engagement. Hubby proposed in a telephone conversation the night before he gave me the flowers. No bended knee stuff. Since he worked for Ma Bell at the time, his technique seemed appropriate. We were engaged on the night before St. Patrick's Day--so we always celebrate St. Patrick's Day as the anniversary of our engagement. It's easy to remember.

He bought the engagement ring the weekend after he asked me to marry him. We went to NYC's Diamond District. He had instructions from a friend of his at work on the ins and outs of buying a diamond there. We ate lunch at McDonald's after the ring was purchased.

I have written thirteen books--all romances. In every book, the hero and heroine fall in love. None of the books have the hero proposing in a phone conversation. In some the hero does propose on bended knee, which is nice. In some, there is a marriage of convenience where the heroine falls in love with the hero after they are legally wedded.

How did your husband propose to you? Was it a romantic proposal--a well-choreographed surprise? Or was it simple, but sweet?
