Long Distance Engagement: Proposal in a Box

First of all, let’s get the important thing out of the way – I’M ENGAGED, I’M ENGAGED, OMG I’M ENGAGED! *dances around the room* I’m also still in a long distance relationship, but not for much longer!


I have been in an extremely loving relationship with Dylan forย four years now. It’s been a while! Throughout that time, we’ve had to deal with a LOT of long distance. The long distance doesn’t even phase us anymore, but we couldn’t be happier to finally have to opportunity to close the gap between us! Dylan currently lives in Wisconsin and I’m situated in Brussels, Belgium (that’sย 4,178 miles /ย 6723 kilometers between us)!

On December 12th, I got a box in the mail that granted, I knew was coming. We decided on our next move together, but I was clueless as to what was actually in the box. Dylan is so sweet and amazing, so today I want to share my proposal in a box with you!


The first thing I could see peeking out of the box were RING POPS! How cute is that? He figured that ring pops were a better alternative to packing peanuts, and oh boy – was he right! They fit perfectly with the whole theme of the box and made for a sweet celebration! ๐Ÿ™‚


Then of course, a photo of my handsome fiancรฉ down on one knee with the sweetest “will you marry me?” sign in his hand! Since so much of our relationship has been at a distance, this long distance proposal meant the WORLD to me. It was extremely sentimental to both of us, and we’re so happy with the amount of love in our relationship that has kept us strong and dedicated to each other.

The box contained the ring, the beautiful photo of Dylan down on one knee, a bunch of ring pops, and a box of Udderfingers. Don’t worry, I didn’t know what those were either a few years ago. They’re almond butter toffee candies from Wisconsin, and he brought them to New York the first time he came to visit me! They’re veryย sentimental to the two of us, as we snacked on them during all of our snuggle sessions and Netflix marathons. It was amazing!


Finally, I couldn’t be happier to be marrying the love of my life. We really have gone through the biggest ups and downs anyone could imagine. Our love is strong, and we’re both extremely excited to begin our lives together.

Distance, my friends, makes the heart fight for true love.
