- Wedding: September 2013
First time poster, LONG time lurker here!
I had never allowed myself to join the bee, in the hope that it would cure my waiting blues, but as of Dec. 8th 2012 I am not longer a lady in waiting!
A little bit about me and my man:
I am 22 and he is 24.
We have been together for about 5 years now (with a couple of brief hiatus’) and we are very much in love!
We are opposite as can be, but strangely similar! and he is one of the only people I feel like knows every side of me!
Now for the proposal!!!
Now, I cannot say I was super surprised as I knew he had already purchased the ring, and I caught him going to visit my parents to ask for their blessing. BUT I was trying really hard not to be a spaz and trying to predict when it would be…
So last weekend we went back to our home town for a number of reasons, and we were planning on being pretty busy the whole weekend, but he asked if I would like to get away and spend some time together the two of us on Sat. I was like “DUH”!
So Sat. morning I wake up and he already has a picnic basket packed and he tells me we are going out to his families land. So after a drive that took forever we got to hike around in the woods looking for a spot. We were just laying there just cuddling and chatting when he was like “LETS EAT!” (a little too loudly and spastically might i add) So I started unpacking the picnic and when i lifted up the sandwiches there was a box!
I turned around giggling like a mad woman going “baby, what is this? Its this real?” and kissing him a lot. He finally got impaitent and said, “babe you have to stand up!” and lifted me up into standing position so that he could propose properly! Then he told me he loved me and asked me to be his wife!!
HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE!
Then in true us fashion we continued hiking and exploring until it was time to go make our announcement!
The ring! (sorry the pic is so huge) morganite, rose gold, and diamonds!
I am such a lucky girl (aren’t we all)!
