To celebrate the launch of Millie and the American Proposal on Amazon, I’ve asked authors and bloggers to talk proposals. Today, it’s the turn of author Jennifer Joyce to tell us about her real-life proposal.
When my husband proposed to me, we weren’t at the top of the Eiffel Tower, overlooking Paris. We weren’t in a swanky restaurant or gazing up at the sky as a plane wrote ‘will you marry me?’ for all to see. We were at home, with a pizza heating in the oven while we watched TV. It wasn’t even a fancy pizza, just your bog-standard supermarket pizza. Pepperoni. Frozen.
The proposal was far from glamorous. It was simple, understated. Private. And for me, it was perfect. The man I loved had asked me to marry him and I was one happy gal!
As it turned out, many years later when we eventually got married, our wedding was probably the smallest, quietest wedding known to man. It was a simple wedding, understated and very private. It matched the proposal perfectly.
Jennifer is the author of the book ‘A Beginners Guide to Salad’ and a book blogger. Find out more about Jennifer:
