We went out to dinner last night to our favorite mexican spot – definitely nothing fancy. We both own houses and have been talking about timelines/plans for selling, which house, etc. We were posing different hypotheticals on timing to eachother – from the realistic to the unrealistic. After going home, we just continued chatting as we changed into comfy clothes. He said, “You know, one thing we haven’t talked about is what you want your ring to look like.” and I said, “I can send you some links if you want them.” and he pulled out the ring box and said, “If you sent me links, would one of them look like this?” It was a ring I had fallen in love with years ago (when I wasn’t even dating anyone, but looking at rings with a friend who was about to get engaged) and had sent to to my sister as a “love this, totally my style” type random email. I guess she had sent it on to my now FI at some point.
Later in the evening I was saying how much I was shocked by the timing and he said he has had the ring for two months, so to him it just feels like everything is as it should be now. And to some extent, I have to agree. So sweet.

Your Proposal Story is very sweet
What a great guy, and soooo meaningful that he coordinated it all behind your back with your Sis to ensure it was both a surprise & THE RING you love

He really is the sweetest. He is an encore groom and I know his first proposal was kind of elaborate and involved family and such…which is pretty much my worst nightmare and I was worried he would feel the need to one-up the story since I was aware of it. I am private and simple in what I find joy in. I love the daily things about our relationship. I appreciate thoughtful, but just us, at his house, in sweatpants could not have been more perfect. I should have known that he would know.
And we want to tell family in person, so I am bursting at the seams happy but have to keep a secret for a couple days – nice to share it with you ladies.
