with Angella Dykstra
I'm a mom of three, a professional accountant, and an amateur photographer and writer. I am not a marriage expert. But my husband and I take "Til death do us part" seriously, and here I'll be sharing how we keep our marriage strong while we both do that insane work-life juggle.
Check out my Work It, Mom! profile and my blog, Dutch Blitz.
I wrote about the night of our engagement a few months ago. Dinner out with his parents, feigned car trouble, then a proposal on a dock in the town we have called home for the past eleven years.
It was romantic and amazing and PERFECT. I would not change a thing. Yet, I love to read or see about other proposals and all of them get me weepy and full of snot because LOVE, MAN.
Case in point: Isaac’s Lip Dub Proposal. I’m sure that you’ve seen it and if not, YOU MUST.

I’ve seen some snark on the Internet about how public proposals (Including this one) are “creepy” or “manipulating.” That makes no sense to me.
My husband and I had talked about marriage before he proposed, had talked about dates, and had even gone ring shopping together. Most people I know have done the same. It doesn’t make the proposal any less special, it just shows that we were both on the same page, relationship-wise.
Was your proposal public or private? Would you like to have had it done differently? Did you love Isaac’s proposal, or do you have a heart made of coal?
