Cool A penguin proposes using a pebble

Hi! My name is Ellie and I'm new here. I thought I'd share a penguin fact (I love penguins) as away to introduce myself

It'd be nice to read any other cute ways of proposing, so feel free to share!

This is so cute! They give a rock too haha.

I don't know any cute proposal stories. :P The day I got engaged, he had taken me to this super expensive restaurant. I had the feeling he was going to propose, so I was extra excited throughout the whole meal (which was delicious). I mean, hints+expensive restaurant=proposal, right?

And then the meal finished with nothing out of the ordinary. I was like, what just happened here?? Haha

(He ended up proposing afterwards.)

Welcome, Ellie!

I find I would quite like to be proposed to by a penguin with a pebble, should I ever be so fortunate as to be properly introduced to an appropriate penguin.

Awww! Haha that's a classic! But, it did make it more special, right? I mean, clearly it's worth sharing .

Thank you! My best friend sent me a picture of said pebble penguin, and I almost cried (no joke). I like the simple things, that's probably why :p
