I am completely THRILLED. I was expecting MAYBE when he came to visit me at school around christmas, even though I would tell him no if it was on a holiday and say yes the next morning. (just a joke between us, don’t worry.) But he decided earlier.
The boy and I had been good friends for a while before because I had gotten out of a pretty bad relationship and I didn’t want to be with anyone. I was kind of dating around. Well October 10th 2011, he took me out to the beach late one night and we sat in a thunderstorm talking about some stuff. It was a different feeling from just hanging out.
Two weeks later he took me up on this grain elevator and asked me to be his girlfriend exclusively. I couldn’t stop laughing, cause thats what I do when I’m nervous. We’ve always kind of just set the 10th as our anniversary though.
So fast forward to August 1st, 2013, and I was flying out to school on the 3rd, so we went for a walk on the same beach, got out to the point where we always go to collect these tiny seashells I use to make jewelry, and we were standing there, I was just chillin with my ice cream pail. He was standing behind me and we were talking about the pelican. He turned me around and I could just feel him shaking when he knelt down and asked. It was so cute, he almost fell over, he was so nervous.
Definitely loved it. and I definitely Love him.
Custom made, white gold. I know nothing about the size of the diamond or anything, but I know my ring is a size 4.5 ? :]
I didn’t want anything BIG, but I wanted something kind of intricate, definitely didn’t want it to get caught when I’m wearing it though. 🙂
His idea is to have smaller stones set in the openings for anniversaries. Sometimes he has the most clever ideas.
SO happy right now.
