- Wedding: June 2013
Hi, everyone. I got engaged on February 24th, so I apologize for waiting so long to share my story.
I knew my fiance was about to propose. We talked about it a lot together, and I even helped select my engagement ring, so that’s kinda a giveaway, haha. Anyways, the week leading up to the proposal was sheer torture. I knew he had the ring, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it! However, I thought I would know when he was about to propose, but he was able to really surprise me!
He came to spend the weekend with me (we live about an hour away). I live in an apartment complex where the entrance to the foyer is unlocked, but the door to the apartments is locked so he always calls when he arrives and I let him in. That Friday afternoon I was waiting for him to arrive and talking to my best friend on the phone. I got a text from him that he had arrived, so I headed up to let him in (I wasn’t even wearing shoes!). I was still talking to my friend, and we said goodbye literally as I opened the door to the lobby. He was waiting for me, on one knee holding flowers, and he proposed. I was absolutely shocked. Apparently I messed up my part by kissing him before he put the ring on my finger.
It feels so good to be engaged!
