Book Store Proposal:

The other night, my boyfriend said he wanted to go to our local B&N (site of our second date, by the way) to check out a book. Being a book lover, I was all in. Plus, I wanted to grab Kat Rosenfield’s new book anyway. We arrived & I marched straight back to the YA section to grab my book. Then I hear my boyfriend, Derek, call me from the other side of the shelves. “Hey, what about this book?”

I come around the corner, and on the top shelf is a book box with the words, “Will you marry this lucky guy, Sara?” on it. I literally dropped the book I was holding & started shaking and crying.

Derek took the box, opened it, revealing a ring pillow inside with an engagement ring tied to it. He removed the ring, got on one knee & asked me to marry him.

Of course I said yes.

His friend, who’d helped stage everything, was standing by to take these photos.

It was the perfect proposal. I am so lucky.
