Hi Bees! Oh my goodness, a very emotional 6 months of waiting came to an end last night! I want to share the happy news because you’ve all been such amazing support these last few months.
So a little background: my FI (!!!) asked for my dad’s blessing way back in April, and I have been on pins and needles ever since. He told all of our friends he would propose this summer, and took me on a wonderful trip to Europe when I thought it would happen. But it did not. And then summer ended. And everyone’s been asking. And more waiting and waiting…
I’ve been trying to be really good lately and not bug him or be too cranky, but I just sort of hit my limit last night and burst into big blubbery tears at his apartment. I told him I wasn’t mad, I just felt like he wasn’t as excited to be with me as I was to be with him, and it really hurt. He gave me a huge hug, assured me that wasn’t the case, and then said “Well, I wasn’t planning it like this, but actually this is a perfect moment!” and ran into his room, coming back with a little blue jewelry box. He said he hadn’t proposed yet because he just got the ring from his mom a week ago, and hadnt had it sized yet. He got down on one knee in the middle of his living room, with me now alternating between crying and hysterical laughter (I’m sure it was extremely attractive), and very sweetly asked me to marry him. I said yes, then realizing I probably looked like a tear-stained crazy woman, laughed saying “Are you really sure? You’re really sure you want all this?” Then he laughed too and said “Yes, I do.” I started jumping up and down while he slipped the ring on my pinky finger because his mom has TINY hands. So not the way I expected it to happened, but I wouldn’t have changed it for anything!
I’m sooo happy today and I still can’t quite believe it happened! I’m so grateful to all of you for sharing your stories and support, and I will put extra prayer power into hoping all of you get your rings soon too!
