- Wedding: October 2013
OK so a HUGE part of me just wants to scream and jump up and down right now, but considering I am at work right now, I’d definately better not! But…
He proposed yesterday!!! 2:55pm!!! Oh it was exactly like I had hoped! I can’t stop staring at the ring and saying “Thank you!” over and over. Friday he told me he would be proposing within a month so I had no clue it would be so soon!
I had plans to meet up with a friend of mine from the 5th grade (about 15 years ago) that I haven’t seen in a while. We were meeting up at 3pm to catch up but before that my fiance (oh my goodness I can’t believe I can call him that now!!!!!) decided we would go for lunch and ice cream. He kept driving all over town looking for the perfect place with a scenic view. His initial plan was the bridge that we both go to frequently but the dock by the bridge was too crowded and he knew I didn’t want a crowd.
So he tried another place and another. Eventually we ended up at the perfect place. It’s a new spot we found recently and has been a recent favorite of ours. Since we live on an island we have hundreds of gorgeous views. This place is a hill of shells right on the edge of downtown. It overlooks the intersection of two rivers but if you walk onto the dirt path you’ll look down and see there’s a small beach with black rocks everywhere. It’s beautiful with all of the boat docks and sail boats and the view of downtown.
So we get out and walk down there. He starts telling me how beautiful I am and how much he loves me. I started to get nervous and didn’t want him to see me cry so instantly I grabbed and hugged him. He kept saying over and over all of these wonderful things about me and then he said the words!!! “Will you marry me” and pulled the ring out of his picket. I shook my head hugged and kissed him and said “You already know my answer. Of course! Yes times a million!!!” we hugged smiled laughed told eachother we loved one another more times than you could count and it’s been incredible since.
I have to work right now but he’s having dinner with his parents right now and is telling them tonight. He’s already told everyone we’ve seen and we’ve even picked a date!!!!!!! It will be mid April. I was pushing for 18 month engagement but he wants a 12 month engagement. I was just pushing for 18 months for the DIYs, guess I have to get to work!!!
I am SOOOOOO excited and couldn’t wait to come here and tell all!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeep!!!!!
Just waiting for a couple pics to upload and I’ll show the ring. It’s a white Gold black diamond ring 1ct total, it’s absolutely perfect. The pics aren’t the best quality since it’s on my phone camera but oh well, it’s beautiful and shines much more than I thought it would! I will post them as soon as they are uploaded
