The "Sweetest" Proposal

I got engaged on Sunday night! Thanks to Bakerella and Rich of course, it has been such an exciting and overwhelming experience. Thanks to everyone for your wonderful wishes…and thanks a million Bakerella for making this happen! I haven’t stopped smiling since…

Most of you already know the story of how it all went down, but if you don't, feel free to read up on it at Bakerella.com. Not only will you get a glimpse of the actual proposal, but also the LATEST UPDATE posted by Bakerella herself, describing the background behind it all!
And to top it all off, Rich and got presents in the mail from Bakerella herself! She sent us "Bakerella, and "Bakerfella" t-shirts....I can't wait to wear mine to work tomorrow! Thanks Bakerella...you are amazing!

  9. Hi, Melissa! I read your proposal, along with all of Bakerella's readers. I just read the back story that she posted today about you and Rich and how the proposal came to be.

  12. Congrats from a total stranger. What a sweet guy you have there.. but you obviously know that. Good luck on the wedding!

  13. Congratulations Melissa and Rich! Aha, I should have known he was Canadian -- Canadian guys are the best! I'm American, but I made sure to marry me a Canadian guy (13 1/2 years ago now).

    Sadly, the one thing I really DON'T have in common with you is baking ability. I can cook decently, but I just cannot bake to save my life. It's even a standing joke between us -- when I met my now-husband in Grand Forks, North Dakota many years ago, I baked him banana mini muffins. It was years later that he told me he used them for indoor hockey pucks. I don't hold it against him!

    But even though I can't bake, I love reading baking blogs. Anyhow, congrats again!
