Porch Swing Proposal

The Porch Swing Proposal

Over the years we’ve heard various stories of how our porch swings have played a part in special family moments.  We feel very blessed to be included in such wonderful memories.  Sometimes we got so caught up with the business end that we forget how special porch swings really are!   However, we’re quickly reminded when we receive letters like the following:

“Early in our relationship, my girlfriend and I had a conversation about bad breakups. She went through her list and I went through mine, and a common thread among them was the awful ways that the people in our lives had gone about breaking up with us. There were the text messages, the surrogates, and phone calls just to name a few. None of them were very classy or chivalrous. One thing she had mentioned is how she always wanted to be broken up with on a porch swing like you would see on TV or in the movies. I jokingly said, ‘If I ever break up with you it’ll for sure be on a porch swing.’  I then added, ‘And if I ever ask you to marry me I’ll do it on a porch swing too…that way when we sit down you won’t know which one its going to be’.

Well two years later, when I decided to ask her to be my wife, I knew what would have to be done. So along with shopping for the perfect engagement ring, I had to find the perfect engagement porch swing as well.

Christmas morning, after the we opened all the presents from under the tree and family had all gone home, I asked her if she was happy with the couple if small and unremarkable gifts she had gotten from me. She of course said yes. I then said, ‘Do you think that’s all I got you?’.  ‘Not now that you said that’, she said with a widening grin.  ‘There is one more, but you have to put your coat on.’

I walked her out the side of the house to the side walk and around to the front porch. As soon as we rounded the corner she saw the newest addition to the porch, a cypress moon porch swing. Her hand started shaking in mine and she said in a sarcastic and trembling voice, ‘You’d better be breaking up with me’.

Here is a picture of us a few minutes after she said yes.”  – C.A.
