This woman’s birthday was definitely one for the books.
On her special day, her boyfriend proposed to her, but not only that, she also discovered that he had actually been doing that every day, stealthily, for the past 365 days.
Dean Smith of Scottsdale, Arizona, created a video full of clips of his year-long secret proposal for Jennifer Kessel, his girlfriend.
During a family trip to Aruba, Dean decided to carry out the big revelation with the help of his girlfriend’s family members.
Using a whiteboard, Jennifer’s sister Jaclyn instructed the birthday celebrant to go down to the lobby, while her two brothers led Jennifer to the beach, where her father and stepmother were waiting for her to watch the video.

One the screen, Smith started, “By now you’ve probably realized that your birthday surprise is in the form of this video.
“What you don’t know is that I’ve been planning this birthday surprise for over a year now.”
Dean’s secret proposal videos started on Jennifer’s birthday last year.
“I just wanted to make this video to tell you that today is the day that I decided I want to spend the rest of my life with you,” he reveals.
For romantic Dean, the daily secret video he made is his way of showing Jennifer how much he loved her and letting her know that he thought about her every single day.
So he secretly filmed himself holding a whiteboard with his proposal message in various situations like in the shower, walking on the beach, brushing his teeth, and so on.
But his message on the whiteboard is more or less the same: “Jennifer, will you marry me?”, “Will you be my wife?”, “Make me the happiest man in the world”, “I love you so much, Jen.”
The video ends with Dean’s proposal the day before with instruction for Jennifer to turn around.
And there was Dean behind her, holding the whiteboard, ready to pop the question for the last time. It took minutes for Jennifer to overcome her feelings and she met him with tissue in her hands she used to wipe her tears of joy.
And by the way, she said yes.
