Family Game Night with a Twist

Sara Melzer & John Rutherford

Over Christmas break, John and my family and I sat down around the dining room table to play a game of Apples to Apples.  That’s how most nights with my family start, so I didn’t think much of it — I especially didn’t think that they were in on it.  When it was my turn to judge, my parents, John, my sister, and her boyfriend each threw in a red card for me to read.  I shuffled the cards and began flipping them over one at a time.  It took me until about the third card to realize this was “it” — he was proposing!   I put the cards in the right order and turned to John, who was already on one knee.  I immediately started crying.  He opened the ring box, told me how much he loved me, told me that he couldn’t live without me, and then asked me to marry him.  I said yes without hesitation and he put the ring on my finger.  We popped champagne, cracked open a bottle of wine, and called everyone we know.  We can’t wait to start our lives together!
