We had talked about marriage and browsed engagement rings briefly in the past, but nothing too serious. It was a long weekend when we went away just the two of us to a little cabin on the lake in Concession, Nova Scotia.

When I woke up in the morning, I was shocked to find a chocolate box on the table that looked just like the one from Matilda, my absolute favorite movie! The ring was inside the box, next to little chocolates that she handmade herself. I immediately said, “Yes.” What she didn’t know is that I was also secretly planning on proposing to her that day.

In the evening, I assembled a campfire for her complete with strung lights, wine, cheese and of course, s’mores! As she was coming outside of the cabin, I handed her a large wrapped gift and she sat down and opened it. It was a handmade wooden frame with our favorite quote, followed by the words, “Marry Me?” She cried and of course said yes as I pulled out a box with her ring inside. To both of our surprise, we realized that we had picked out the same ring for each other! It was the most magical day. —from Rebecca and Danielle
