Hellooooo Bees 🙂
I have been reading these boards from a distance for soooo long, and now I am finally posting, wahoo! 🙂
Okay, so my SO and I have been together for a year and a half, friends for three, and I have known from very early on that he is my other half…I actually remember the exact day and moment I knew it. We have talked about engagement and marriage, but are waiting to formalize anything until I finish up my undergraduate this year and we move in next summer. ANYWHO I am a sucker for sentimental gifts, and I found a gift I think would be great for me. I found it on pinterest (here is my unsurprisng confession that I am a pinterest addict). Here is a picture of it:
I am putting the latitude/longitude to the campsite we were at the weekend I knew he was the one and the date of the trip printed on the inside. Additionally, he works with his hands daily at work and wearing a ring in his line of work is difficult, so I have a chain picked out for him to wear it on when he has to work.
I had wanted to give it to him for his birthday, but its in December and I am not sure I can wait that long 😛 We are going away at the end of September for some much needed alone us time, so I considered giving it to him then. Our anniversary this year was less than stellar, which was fine for then, but this getaway is right around the 18 month mark, and while we don’t really measure our relationship in months, it is a semi-significant date…worth a gift? 🙂
So thoughts bees! Not too cheesy? And should I give it to him on our weekend getaway or wait until his birthday?
