- Wedding: October 2012
Hi there, fellow Bees! I’m a new bee, but have been buzzing around for quite some time. 🙂 I thought I would share a picture of my engagement ring, which I received two months ago! It is a moissanite centerstone with diamond sidestones. 🙂
After much debate, I’ve decided to go with a plain, 2mm, white gold wedding band that will arrive in the mail next week!
How we got engaged
Sometime after Christmas, FI had been talking about how he wanted to visit his family’s beach condo. At first, I was a little bit wary of the fact that he really wanted to visit for a short period of time in the cold month of January, but after he told me that the condo would be rented for a few months afterward, and my previous knowledge of how much he loves visiting, I just chalked it up to an itching to visit.
We spent the first day just hanging out together, watching movies and making dinner. The second day we decided to go out to dinner at a local place, and then take a walk on the beach. After dinner we walked over to the beach and started to walk along the shoreline. It was very chilly and after a bit we decided to walk back toward the condo. FI started steering me toward the ocean; as I was pretty cold and got a little nervous and asked him jokingly if he was going to push me in! He laughed and started talking to me and telling me how much he loved me and then stopped me and stood in front of me with a big smile on his face, dropped to his knee, presented me with my gorgeous ring and asked “so, will you marry me?” I was totally shocked, but I dropped to my knees to kiss him and tell him “Yes, of course!” (Which, led to a round of applause and cheering from some strangers in a nearby condo that must have been watching!) I was so overjoyed that I didn’t even hear them until FI pointed it out! It was the perfect start of our new life as a family together 🙂
