After 5.5 years together, we finally got engaged!! My FI suprised me when I came home from work last Thursday (the day before my 25th birthday). When I walked into our apartment there were clouds hanging from the ceiling and a huge multicolored bouquet of balloons. The table had candles, roses, and our TV set up.
(the picture does not even come close to doing it justice!! it was breathtaking!)
*Some back story here: my FI and I are huge movie watchers. We have a running list of every movie we’ve ever seen together (we’re up to almost 700 movies–for those keeping track at home that’s about a new movie every three days and this list does not account for any movies we rewatch). My FI works in Video production for a PR firm in Boston and studied Film so he knows his way around a camera.
After the initial shock wore off and I was able to regain control of my legs and picked my jaw up off the floor I came inside and he sat me down in front of the TV where he played this:
I basically sobbed and laughed through the whole video. Finally, at the end, he came over from behind the TV and got down on one knee. I honestly cannot remember what he said except I know I jumped the gun and kissed him before he could ask!! Eventually he pulled out the ring box which he had made to look like the Adventure book from UP and gave me the most beautiful ring! The center stone has been in my family for around 170 years and the setting is absolutely perfect!
He even gave my cat a bow-tie for the occasion!
I cannot believe I am actually getting married and I am so excited that I had to share my moment with all of you!!!
We’re thinking of getting married at the Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston, MA on 10/3/2015!!!
