So he asked and I said yes!
I had a short day at school so we went out for a nice lunch to one of my favorite restaurants and afterward we went to the local botanical garden. We had been last week and it was really goreous. I said that I wanted to go back because it was so romantic and pretty. We made it all the way through the gardens and went to sit on our favorite bench by a giant old tree. I leaned on his shoulder and closed my eyes–I tend to do that quite often. After a while I asked if he was ready to go and he said yes. Then he said “But before we go you should put this on”. I peek out the corner of my eye and there he is with the ring. Then he asked me to marry him!
So cross me off of the waiting list!
Thanks to all of the bees who offered their support and advice while I was waiting (I appreciate it), and big hugs to all of my bees in waiting!

Thank you ladies! I think it is really starting to sink in now. On another note–ring pics. I may not be able to get ring pics put up on the board. My FI heard me open the cover on my camera from the other room and came back to ask me if I was posting a pic of the ring! He doesn’t want me to post pics. He says it’s too personal.
I think part of it is that we got a promise ring when he wanted to get a fairly elaborate e-ring. I love my ring. We picked it together. I think it suits me, but he’s being a little particular about it, so I’m going to give him some time and maybe he will warm up to the idea of me posting pics.
Again, thanks ladies! Whoo I’m excited!

Aww, don’t worry about the pics. We can imagine!
He sounds like my SO. He’s very private too. 🙂
