- Wedding: May 2014
So it finally happened!
My new FI and I spent the weekend at the beach in an ocean front condo and had a wonderful time!
I had been in on the entire ring process and knew that he would be proposing during our little vacation.
I anxiously waited through Thursday, Friday and all day Saturday! I will admit I was getting very anxious because I thought maybe it would never happen!!
So on Saturday night we went out to a fancy little French restaurant in town to celebrate our 6 year dating anniversary which is actually this Thursday.
Had a great meal but still no ring :/
So we got back to the condo and he suggested a late night walk on the beach. I thought OK here it comes, I’m ready! We walked and walked down the sidewalk then down towards the water then headed back towards the condo along the water. We walked and walked a little more, eventually passed the condo and I asked if the walk was over LOL. He said no not yet and I looked up and saw a huge sign in a spotlight attached to a fence that said “Artificial Sweetener, will you marry me?”
I squealed with excitement and gave him a huge hug; he got down on one knee and said “Well will you??” I said YES of course!!
So here is my sparkly beauty and I could not be more excited. We are planning a long engagement; probably March 2014 so we can save to add on top of what my parents are giving us.
I feel so blessed to finally get to marry my best friend.
And let me say to all the ladies who think it won’t happen. GIVE HIM TIME! My FI never thought that he would get married. So much has changed in the last 6 years; and it was worth the wait.
