- Wedding: September 2013
Hello, I’ve been lurking for quite some time, but I think that now is the right time to come out of hiding and say hello. I think that now is a good time because last night my boyfriend of 7 years got down on one knee and proposed. We met right after our first year of college and we’ve been together ever since. We’ve had a long road to engagement, and I was worried that I might resent him for waiting so long. I was even worried that I might not be excited when the date finally came. But now I’m happy to say that the wait was worth it, hence, the username I chose. So…. this is how it went down….
I had traveled abroad and when my plane landed for my return flight back home, I called my boyfriend to let him know that the plane had landed. It took me FOREVER to get through customs, and then, when I finally got through, I called him again because I couldn’t find him outside of customs and he couldn’t find me either. In order to make it easier to find me, I walked outside of the airport near where passengers get picked up and dropped off. I was facing the street, and then I heard someone call my name. I turned around, and there was my boyfriend in a very nice suit with a big sign that asked me to marry him. My mouth dropped open as he dropped down on one knee and proposed. Of course, I said yes, and then cars started honking. After that, we hopped in a chauffeured car that he had reserved, and headed home to celebrate. He brought his friend to the airport with him, so the whole thing is on camera. Here is a picture of the ring….
