To celebrate a year together, Terry made a necklace for his girlfriend Anna.
Flashing some serious woodworking skills, Terry crafted the charm from pine, embedding a delicate spiral shell on its face.
Anna wore the necklace every day.
But there was something about that humble wooden charm. You see, Terry hid a precious secret inside it — in fact, all his hopes and dreams were pressed into that wood.
Anna had no idea he had hidden an engagement ring in there!
A year and a half after giving her the necklace, Terry took Anna on a trip to Smoo Cave in northern Scotland, a natural wonderland that they had always talked about visiting. (“Smoo,” by the way, comes from an ancient Norse word meaning “hiding place.”)
While hiking there, Terry cracked open her necklace — and popped the question.
He captured the whole scene on camera: the kneel, the question, the “yes”… and the kiss.
One thing the camera didn’t quite capture? Anna had a few words for her gallant suitor: “Wait, it’s been in there the entire time? I could have lost it, you f****** idiot!”
But rarely do we see a proposal quite so … charming.
