- Wedding: March 2013
so a few weeks ago I posted about how silly I felt to expect a ring when my bf said he’d bring me back “a surprise” for me from his home leave. I mean, I knew it would not be it but when he said “a surprise” I jumped…ha…
he came back after 2 weeks. at the weekend we were having dinner at one of our favorite restaurant, he handed me a packet BADLY WRAPPED with newspaper and ducttape. ew. but I thought, something really nice would be inside of it. I continue opening those papers, I see a small jewelry box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
then, I see another jewelry box next to it…
that’s when I knew it wasn’t a ring.
it’s a pair of pretty gem stone earings and a matching necklace.
at this point I was awwwwwwwwwwwwwwing and very happy that he decided to get me something romantic!!! I don’t care if it’s a ring or not. He said he went shopping with a guy friend of his and shopped around for HOURS. AND HE HATES SHOPPING! sigh… I thought that was super cute he went into many shops looking for something to give me.
and there’s additional update. a month ago we decided we would talk about progressing our relationship after he’s back from his home leave. he asked for this amount of time and I happily agreed. I wanted him to REALLY think about what HE wants out of life and how he would get it and everything important, I wanted him to really process his thoughts… I was so anxious while he was gone and until we finally talk.
and last night we talked. he actually thought I would bring up over dinner at the restaurant which I didn’t! what I got from him was his timeline for when we would get married. it will be 1.5 – 2 years from now and it will be summer or warm weather. it will be before I be 30 and he be 32. he obviously remembers one time I said I wanted to get married before I be 30. I said that would work!
Now the question came up to me is when we would get engaged. I asked him and he was like “:o wait I’d have to think about that…” well I guess he put great thought into Marriage and life but not E. I just pointed out that planning takes a while. at this point I don’t have to bother with ring talks and engagements fiasco. I will be happy just to tell our parents what we’re doing and do “save the date” sometime this year. I feel relieved in that we will be able to talk more openly and in detail about what we want for our wedding and future from now on!
