Three years ago I got engaged. I was at Lily Bay State Park in Maine on Moosehead Lake. My wife Allison (girlfriend at the time) and I had just finished a day on the water. If you have never been to Moosehead lake to paddle you are missing out. The place was awesome.

Anyway, thinking back on that day It makes me think about my friends Neil and Derek and when I told them that I was going to propose. I wanted the proposal to be something memorable and I wanted to do it while paddling. The problem is that diamond rings and water are not the best mixture. I mean, what if I tried to give her the ring and it slipped from my fingers and she went after it and got tossed in the water. That would certainly be a memorable story but not a very happy ending. So I decided to wait till we landed to propose and that made all the difference.
