It was Blake and Carly’s two year anniversary, so Blake (the boyfriend) decided to do it up big for his lovely girlfriend. He built her, with his own two hands, a custom jewelry armoire from wood he presumably cut down himself as well. He filled it with a number of gifts (i.e. scarves), which already overwhelmed Carly… who had no idea the best part was still to come!
Eventually, she got to the bottom drawer, which didn’t have a knob screwed into it yet. Blake told Carly she’d have to screw it in herself. When she finished, he told her to have a closer look inside the bottom drawer of her new handcrafted jewelry chest. Inside the drawer, she found a box that contained her engagement ring. Blake got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life, Carly. It was an inspirational moment to see a young couple get engaged in such bosslike fashion!
Boss Tip: Skip to about 7:35 in the video to watch the REALLY good part unfold.
Carly included a brief synopsis of what happened during their engagement, when she uploaded the video on YouTube. She put it so eloquently that I just have to share it with you, “On October 9, 2014, my boyfriend,now fiance, surprised me with the best proposal I could have ever dreamed of! I was completely shocked and am beyond blessed and excited!!
I thought the surprise was the beautiful jewelry armoire he designed and made me for our two year anniversary…boy was I wrong.”
We wish Blake and Carly all the best for the future, which we know in our hearts only holds great things for them, and happy lives together.
