Within the first couples of months of dating, Dylan and Elizabeth took on a very big project together. A house. Not just a house… but a house that needed major renovations. Although it was a big step, they were both ready and excited to take it on together. Through many hours of work and dedication, Dylan and Elizabeth were able to make their new house a home.
One of their biggest projects on the house was their back patio/deck. When finished, it quickly became their favorite place to spend time together in the evening. Flash forward to an evening a couple of months after their deck was finished and picture this… Dylan grilling steaks and shrimp on the deck… flowers and candles on the patio table.
Elizabeth got home from work and didn’t think much of it as Dylan frequently did nice things like that. He told her they were having dinner on the patio and that there was a special dessert coming. Having just got home from a long day, Elizabeth instantly started brainstorming what it could be. She was hoping for cookie cake but Dylan didn’t give her any clues so she wasn’t sure.
When they had finished dinner, Dylan went inside to “get dessert”. When he came back outside, he got down on one knee and presented her with a diamond ring. Although it wasn’t the cookie cake she was hoping for, it was the best surprise she had ever received.
