Over 15 years ago I sent my Sweetie on a treasure hunt to find her
engagement ring. She's from Pennsylvania and I brought her to my home in Connecticut
for the weekend.
I snuck out at first light the next morning
as she slept. I placed hidden messages at places she visited for the first time when she
met my parents about a month earlier. Each message was about a mile or two away from each
other so she had to use my car during the hunt.
The first message was hidden in a magazine
she had to purchase at a grocery store my brother worked at. The second was at a sandwich
shop within her favorite sandwich I preordered for her. The third was on a milk carton she
had to buy at a dairy store my sister use to work at. The forth was under a bridge we use
to swim at and the last place ended up next door to my house at a grave yard we use
to walk around holding hands.
When I finished setting up the treasure
hunt, I woke my Sweetie and told her that she was to use my car and go on a treasure hunt
with real treasure at the end of the hunt. She was really excited and had no idea
about the ring. It took her less than one hour to complete the game and end up in the
grave yard where she found a large one foot square box. I hid in the woods and took
pictures as she unwrapped four boxes neatly wrapped inside one another.
Each box had a small love note which read
something like; "getting closer, isn't this fun", "today is the first day
of the rest of your life", "I bet you're wondering what's in here" etc..
She finally got to the last two inch square box and she thought it was a pair of
earrings until she read the note that said "I love you, will you marry me?" She
began to cry and quickly opened the box to find the diamond engagement ring.
I then left my hiding place and walked over
to her asking if she was okay. She said yes. I asked her what the answer was and again she
said yes. It was the happiest day of my life and I love more today then I did that
day over 15 years ago.
