A proposal on the edge between scary and meaningful.

It’s mean? It’s scary? I dunno.

I think there’s something beautiful about getting real, getting really into that headspace where you think about life and death and how precious it is, and whether, in that place, you want to spend the rest of one’s short, precious life with someone.

Just don’t do it to me.

Boom: Will You Marry Me?

    With my not being too fond of flying I may have possibly hurled and this video would not have turned out as cute…lol

    Stupid. Read my comments on why at the Youtube. I'm disappointed that elephant journal would even post this. Thumbs DOWN!

    I don't see how scaring the crap out of someone you love is a good or clever idea, regardless if there is a proposal and pretty ring to follow.
