My fabulous husband found the tape of his proposal this weekend and put it on youtube, and I thought i would share it with y'all too.
Heres a little background. . . Clarke and I met in college and started doing musicals together- I was a theater major, and Clarke was in all the choirs at Auburn so we stole him when we needed great male voices for any of our musicals. We fell in love. And Clarke, becuase he knows me so well, and knows how much i loved to sing, and how i wished more people would just break out in song in everyday life, set his proposal to music, and then had the band play a song that i knew and let me sing my acceptance back to him. My husband sang with The Auburn Knights Orchestra. This all happened at the Knights reunion weekend- they have one every summer and all the members from each decade dating back to the 30s get together for a weekend and perform- Its a fabulous event!
Anyhoo-Last night we watched the proposal on youtube- I hadn't seen it for YEARS. I was blown away by how beautiful it was, but at the same time, got horribly embarresed at how bad i sound singing! And I said so. And I hurt Clarke's feelings. And I feel bad because i really do sound terrible singing, but Clarke reminded me (how could i forget!) that i had just been PROPOSED TO FOR HEAVENS SAKE! And then he told me to shut up and stop being so darn self concious and quit ruining one of the most precious moments of our life together. And he is right. So. I'm shutting up.
