Hi Lovely ladies!
A few weeks ago my boyfriend (now fiance, eeeek!) spontaneously said he wanted to marry me and we agreed that we’d get married but first he wanted to get me a ring. It was a strange in-between engaged, but not publically thing, because he really wanted to wait to tell people until he could ‘put a ring on it’ or whatever.
So, that finally happened! We had picked out a ring together that day from Etsy, but it would be handmade and would take weeks to come. I also didn’t know if he’d “propose” right away with it or not, so I was hoping it was coming soon, and maybe this weekend, but I’d been wrong before and didn’t want to get my hopes up too much.
Last week he suggested that we take a day trip or get out of town on Saturday, and we decided to go hiking and get oysters along the coast. I didn’t even know if the ring had arrived, because he told me he was going to make sure I didn’t know (and turns out he had it sent to work), but he was being a little weird about packing his backpack himself, even though I was throwing some warm layers and snacks in there too, so I thought maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe.
We hiked, we ate oysters, it was gorgeous, but nothing. Then we went down to the beach at the oyster farm, and he said he wanted to grab the oreo cookies from his backpack, but when he turned back around he had a white ring box with a ribbon on it! He asked me again if I would marry him, and of course I said yes, and he put the ring on my finger! I was, and still am, giddy with excitement! We took some silly photos, then went and had dinner at an organic farm that does farm dinners sometimes, with beer and champagne to celebrate.
So now it’s OFFICIAL! It’s public, it’s real, we are getting married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And here ladies is my obligatory ring porn. It’s a camera phone photo, so sorry for the bad quality. It’s a white sapphire center stone, with diamonds and white gold for the halo and band. I LOVE IT!
