- Wedding: November 2013
Yesterday, on our 6th anniversary, my boyfriend, now fiance (!!!), finally popped the question!!!!
Backstory: We adopted a cat about a month ago, she had liver disease that no one knew about, the disease progressed and even with countless vet visits and all that we did for her she passed away a week or so ago..I was really sad but when we woke up yesterday (our anniversary), My boyfriend told me that after we went to Disney we were going to go pick up a kitty! His parents’ neighbors had a litter and were giving them away.
Being our anniversary, I was really, really hoping that he would finally propose (I had known about the ring for two months). We spent the whole day at Disney and had a really good time at the Food and Wine Festival. It was a great day but when he hadn’t proposed by the time we went home I thought it just wasn’t going to happen. Needless to say I was very bummed but I was determined to not let this spoil our day. We went to his parents’ neighbor’s house to pick up the kitten and then went next door to his parents’ house.
The Proposal: We were there for a few ours, hanging out with his parents, playing with the kitty and watching TV. We had been keeping the kitten in an upstairs bathroom because his parents have 6 big cats and a puppy. Around 8 o’ clock he heads upstairs. I think he is just going upstairs to play with the kitten again but he comes down with her. She is wearing a collar and upon closer inspection there is a ring on it and the little tag read, will you marry me!!!! I was so shocked I didn’t even cry like I always imagined that I would. He asked me, I said yes, he slipped the ring on my finger, kissed me and it was perfect!!!!
The Ring (Sorry for the crappy phone pics):
It has been in my family for 100+ years and it is absolutely perfect!!! (yesterday was my first time seeing it, it has lived in my grandmother’s safety deposit box for years) SORRY FOR THE SUPER HUGE PICTURES!!
