The setting was Bar Harbor, Main. He rented a private chartered sailboat for the two of us with a captain, and right at sunset while we were far from the coast, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife!  


I told him I was totally surprised but that would be a lie if I said I was completely surprised.

He told me that we were going away to Maine for the weekend which was great, but then he did all of the planning and made reservations for all of our activities for the weekend.

He's not really a planner and always asks me to pan out our schedule when we go on vacation, so I was a bit taken aback when he literally had everything planned down to the hour.
