- Wedding: October 2014
I’ve been lurking on the boards here for longer than I’d like to admit, but I finally had to break down and tell someone how anxious I’m getting! My guy and I are going on a week long trip to Portland, OR next Wednesday and I’m wondering if he might propose there!
We’ve been together just shy of 2 1/2 years, and we’re planning on moving to Portland around March next year. We’ve discussed marriage since around the 1 1/2 year mark, but I knew he wasn’t ready to take the plunge for a while, so I always tried not to mention it too often.
About 4 or 5 months ago, we were walking around the mall, and I wanted to run into Helzberg, just to look. Normally, he’d smile and humor me as I’d drool over the rings, but never really paid much attention. Not so much on that trip. When the sales lady came over and asked if I wanted to try anything on, I blushed and said no, but he encouraged me to try some. I couldn’t really find anything I liked, until he flagged me down and pointed out the most beautiful setting I’d seen. It was simple, but unique and absolutely gorgeous. I tried it on and knew that it was the one. He even knew that I wanted a sapphire as the center stone instead of a diamond! The lady filled us on on specifics/prices, and we headed out. I tried my best to not to mention it from then on.
A few months later, I overheard him talking with his best friend about weddings/rings/etc., and heard him talking specifics about prices and things that we didn’t talk to her about! He’s also gotten a lot more romantic, saying “I love you” more (we used to only say it on occasion, because we think it gets overused sometimes and loses its meaning), etc. and I can’t help but wonder!
We’ve talked about what kind of proposals we like, so I know that more than likely he’ll do it somewhere outdoors and gorgeous, but private (neither of us are into the over the top public proposals). We’ve been looking forward to this trip for months now, and I could see it happening there!
I’m doing my best to put it out of my head and not get my hopes up, but a girl can dream! 🙂
Anyway, sorry for the novel! I just needed to let out some of these pent up nerves!
