- Wedding: November 2014
Soooooooo I have been browsing this website for a few weeks now, and this is my first post. I knew an engagement would probably happen by the end of the year- so I have been looking at all the gorgeous rings posted trying to pass time! I have been with my SI/now FI for a little over nine years! We started dating in junior high and stayed together through high school. We even went through nursing school together, which was a huge blessing! We graduated in August, and I knew once he had some money saved the engagement would be soon. Now go back to Friday November 23 and that was the MOST romantic day ever!
He had told me we were going to take a picture at his Aunt’s for a Christmas ornament that she did every year. I was actually excited to be able to choose the picture instead of her finding one off of Facebook lol. So we were on the way and the whole way I was talking and he was silent. And then he said close your eyes. I said what? And he said close your eyes and keep them closed. We stopped and he helped guide me out of the car and he said open your eyes and he was kneeling on rose petals! We were at the ballpark where we first started dating 9 years ago, and he told me how ever since that day his life has been changed for the better and he said more sweet and lovely words that I can’t remember! One the fence, in the background, he had painted a sign that said will you marry me? It was absolutely perfect!!!! He also prepared a celebratory picnic which was homemade lasagna (which we had on our one year anniversary), chocolate covered strawberries, and my favorite wine!
My amazing ring is an oval diamond (E, VVSI, 1.76 carat) set in a Henri Daussi setting(1.25 carat)! I was in shock! Please share your amazing rings as well!!!!!
I’m sorry for the lengthy post and HUGE pictures! (And typos- autocorrect is my enemy!)
