FI finally proposed while we were on vacation on a cruise back in September. I have been a long time lurker and finally decided I should register and share. FI and I met on a cruise in August 2009 and I am honestly shocked we are still together. When we met, I was still in college and even though we lived nearby each other, I didn’t really think it would have lasted this long. But, I graduated and got a job, he found a job and moved up to Northern NJ and here we are today.
This past summer we purchased a condo together, so I knew a ring was on it’s way, but I never expected everything to be so perfect. I truly feel so lucky and blessed to have him in my life.
So for the proposal…we were taking formal photos on the ship and he told the photographer he wanted one more pose captured. The next thing I know, he is down on one knee telling me how he wants to wake up next to me every day and have me as his partner in adventure for the rest of his life. He said some other things I have a hard time remembering because I was in such shock, but it was perfect. Afterwards, the cruise ship band played Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” (which I think will be our first dance song) and we walked around the ship and had dinner, with lots of congratulations from people and crying on my end in between. It was just so perfect and I wouldn’t have changed anything about it. Now for the photos…sorry if they are big, I don’t know how to fix it

@mrspinesol: I just posted some photos. Yes, it is a Tiffany’s box. I picked the tiffany solitare with the channel-set band and am very grateful FI let me help pick it out, I really do adore it. I know some people say you can get a bigger stone from somewhere else, but I am happy with it.

@chic_and_fabulous: Yes, it is. I am lucky FI let me help pick out my ring. We went on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. We actually are cruising again in February on the Liberty of the Seas. I think we will switch it up for our honeymoon and do something land based though!
