- Wedding: May 2013
SO and I have been seriously discussing engagement over the past year. We turned a corner in the last few months when he indicated he wanted to buy a house, and I put my foot down and refused to so it unless we were at least engaged. Owning a home is high priority for him as he owns his own home renovation business and thinks it undermines his credibility to have payments sent to our apartment address. So long story short, I know that proposal is coming soon.
Since our agreement, I have kept quiet on the topic of marriage and have just been enjoying our life and focusing on my career, but like any excited waiting bee, I still get my fix from cruising Pinterest. When pinning yesterday, I came across a picture of this gorgeous ring, and followed it to the site it was pinned from, and just fell in love. I’d never really made a big deal about what ring I wanted or looked even really, but this one just caught my eye. so I decided why not let SO in on what I saw since I had been so good about not bringing the topic up? Over dinner I told him about the ring and how I just loved it, and he asked if I could still pull up a picture and show him! So I did and told him the store it came from. After looking at it a minute he said, “so you like this one a lot and would want to wear it?” I nodded, and then he said, “and it’s at this store?” I replied with yes and smiled, and he smiled back and said “ok.” we then started talking about other things, but I am now really excited! I am pretty sure Christmas might be it this year, fingers crossed!
sorry that was a bit long, but I was compelled to gush my excitement!
ps- does anyone else post on here from iPhone and have the worst time with autocorrect? Sometimes I have to type a word several times because I erased something right before and it wants to correct the new and last word to something completely ridiculous!
