After dating over 5 years, we’re finally engaged. I think it would of happened sooner had I not said “you can’t propose to me until you’re in uniform” Little did I know that it would take two years before he got accepted into the Marine Corps Officers program.
We just left the Smithsonian after looking at all the Harry Winston jewels (wow, amazeballs!) and he wanted to see the Jefferson memorial again; he knows it’s my favorite. Once we got there he said he needed to use the restroom?! I was a little peeved since he just used the restroom before we left the Smithsonian. So here I am sitting on the steps of the Jefferson memorial freezing my tush off and getting more pissed by the the minute. All of a sudden, I see in the distance of a man in dress blues coming towards me. After that point, I wasn’t so cold and pissed anymore. 🙂
He hired a photographer to capture the whole moment, I thought she was just a tourist taking pictures.

Here it is ladies, my new ring. Best part, he picked it all himself. He even asked my gf’s to find out if I liked rose gold to which I replied no. He went with his gut instincts and bought it anyways. I abosutely love it!
