Third week in a row 133 has become engaged! Talk about a lucky number!
After a crazy few weeks, my FI and I took the day off from work to spend my birthday together on 12/12. We planned a day of fun outings, ate a tasty Indian dinner, and came back to the apartment where he played me some songs on his guitar, including one he wrote for me. Then he said he had one more thing in the bedroom. At first, he handed me a birthday card, but once I read it, he got down on one knee!
But Bees, that isn’t even the best part. It turns out this was a family affair, and people had been keeping it secret even during Thanksgiving and Hannukah. Also, two weeks ago, FI’s grandma unexpectedly passed away. Since they’d helped pick out the diamond and kept it safe at their home until my birthday, she knew about it. In fact, my FSIL was there with him when he told their grandparents he was going to propose, and the fact they all were able to share such an awesome moment is special beyond words. Everyone is so excited for us and eager to focus on a happy moment for the family.
The ring turned out more beautiful than anything I was expecting! It’s a 1.25 carat center diamond in white gold with a dainty band for my small hands.
