Hello, Bees! This is my first post! Before I get into my first update, I want to say THANK YOU to all of the ladies on this board who have answered other Bee’s questions similar to my own. I have spent a couple of weeks so far doing a lot of pre-engagement research to figure out what kind of ring was for me and everyone’s posts have been very helpful! More about that later, on to the update!
James and I celebrated our 2-year anniversary on September 18th! It was so exciting to be able to celebrate this with him and not have to travel 6 hours to do so! Living together is amazing.
We have discussed our future engagement and I could not possibly be more excited! By January, all of our graduate school applications will have been submitted, therefore, James has scheduled what he* calls a “meeting” to plan an engagement timeline. He would much rather it be a complete surprise, but he knows my planning-obsessed heart is just to fragile for that (which, of course, is just one of the many reasons why I love him!).
On Friday, while out shopping, we took a minute to quickly look at a few rings. It was very surreal! My quest for the perfect ring presses onward, but now I am relieved to know that I have until January to be as indecicive as I want. You can expect that 99.99% of all of my upcoming posts will be ring-related. In addition to my engagement ring research, I have started to put together a blog as a space where I can organize my thoughts and inspiration for my dream wedding. Once it is a little more cohesive, I will definitely post a link!
Anyway, I am over the moon to start this next chapter of my life with someone who I love so much! Let the countdown to January begin!
*After reading this back to him, James is insistent that I was actually the one who called it a “meeting” — sounds about right.
