- Wedding: August 2015
Over Thanksgiving weekend (which was also our 6 year anniversary) my ::ahem:: FIANCE proposed!!! GahhhhH! I’m still smiling.
He had the whole weekend planned out from start to finish, and it was a total surprise. He had our friends put together a vegan thanksgiving dinner for us, which kicked off the weeked. Then we spent some time in SF, shopped, saw the sights, etc.
Then. At 4:00 am on Saturday his dad calls him…which was kinda ok since FI had already said we needed to get up by 5 at the latest. But he brushed off the phone call, saying his Dad forgot the time difference. Little did I know he was actually calling to see if we were engaged yet (which I still chuckle about….yet?? at 4 am?? lol)
It turned out FI had planned a trip to Yosemite, where we hiked to Glacier Point. It was amazing. And exhausing. And really, really, reaaallllly high up. The view was amazing!
Once we got to the top, he popped out a little black box (eeeee!) and said it was my anniversarry gift. He opened it, and inside was the most amazing diamond studs I’ve ever seen. I was so surprised and confused and almost kinda scolding (since we agreed no gifts, and we’re supposed to be saving money!!). But before I could say anything other than “ohmygod these are beautiful what are you thinking??? I love them!!” He started unzipping his hiking jacket….to reveal a tux! And I immediately started crying.
Next came **the** little black box. He was so cute and amazing; he actually forgot to get down on one knee (not that I noticed or cared!!! haha), so after he asked, I said yes and we hugged, he kind of freaked and got down on one knee, and asked again. So adorable.
Then he took me to the fanciest hotel/lodge I’ve ever been to. Happiness ensued.
Anyway, that’s our story!
Thank you so so much to all the Bees who have given me support and laughs over this last year while I was waiting – you all mean so much! Thank you thank you!
Lastly, just in case you’re interested – my freshly-minted FI made a video of the whole thing, which you can see here:http://youtu.be/bpV-2z-kC68
