Abby and Andrey have been together for 5.5 years. Andrey had the ring for a while, but was waiting for what he called Abby’s season. He said, “Pumpkins are just so her.” So he hand carved 18 pumpkins to spell out “Abby will you marry me?” and arranged them under their bay window in front of their house. Everyday, Andrey takes Abby to and from the train for work. When he picked Abby up that evening and they pulled up to the house, Abby was upset that he had decorated their house without her consent, but quickly realized that they were pumpkins. And then she realized that they spelled something out. Tears and laughter ensued. A year has since passed and Andrey recently recreated the pumpkins to say “She said yes!” (much to Abby’s delight).
