EXCITING NEWS, BEES.
I have been *officially* waiting since February of this year when we were at dinner one night and he told me that he has realized he was going to marry me someday. this was 2 months before our 3 year anniversary. I have always loved him and always known deep down he was the one, but just like i waited for him to say “i love you” first, i waited for him to admit he wanted to marry me first. we had always talked about “IF we get married” and after that point, it was “WHEN we get married.” I have waited impatiently ever since. He asked my parents for their blessing in late august, and then things slowed down. he started to push away a little, scaring the heck of out of me, and he seemed to be too scared to move forward. just two months ago he told me he didn’t think he was ready yet. I cried a lot, but I got over it. slowly he began to warm up to the idea again. he was back on track and SLOWLY and PAINFULLY moving towards a proposal. this upset me. I wanted him to be happy about our next step in life! commence more tears. then one day, a few weeks ago, after talking with our pastor about marriage, he came out a different man. he had a total change of heart. he was ready to commit. ready to save the money. ready to marry me. I was ECSTATIC. even then, i assumed it would be a bit before he could save the money and rustle up a proposal, but no. he came to me yesterday and asked for a link to my moissaniteco wish list because he wanted to propose over christmas break. WHAT! WHAT!? WHAT IS MY LIFE ABOUT.
I screamed from the rooftops (then sent him my wishlist) AND THEN DANCY-DANCED TIL I COULDN’T ANYMORE. I cannot put in words the happiness in my heart that the man who seemed reluctant to commit is now excited to buy a ring, plan a proposal and be my husband! AHHH! Had to keep it on the DL irl because he wants to keep it all a surprise!
