A Proposal

How would you like to be proposed to? Under the stairs on a moonlit night as you and your partner sit at your favorite spot? At the restaurant where you had your first date? On a romantic weekend getaway at that sweet, little cottage in the mountains? It is a fun occasion to fantasize about - imagining that moment in which your loved one pulls from his jacket pocket a small box that contains so much promise for the future.

Recently, while on a jog in the nearby park, I came across this chalk drawing on the pavement:

Who is Paige?  Did her soon-to-be fiance plan a romantic walk in the park that would end at this very spot?  Did he plan for her regular running route to bring her to this place where she would be surprised by the unexpected message?  I'd like to think that she said yes and that they are now happily planning their wedding.  Unfortunately, the end to this story is a mystery. 
Seeing chalk drawing this made me think of the lengths that men and women will go to to propose to their loved one in a special way.  The proposal does not have to be extravagant, just meaningful.  Because when you're in love, romance comes easy.  
What would your ideal romantic proposal entail? We'd love to hear from you!
