- Wedding: May 2014
Well bees, I’m engaged! I feel like I’m still in shock and it doesn’t even feel real!
Yesterday was his birthday so I wasn’t expecting it at all. We were headed out for a happy hour with some of his coworkers but he said we were a little early so he wanted to wander around for a bit. He took me to the top of the tallest building in our city, where we had one of our first dates. I told him I felt bad because it was supposed to be his day! And he told me that’s what he wanted for his birthday. Aww.
Turns out the ring he had is actually his mom’s ring, which his dad had reset with his mom’s (FI’s grandmother’s) stones. He had it fixed up a bit and it’s just perfect. It’s the same setting and everything but it looks so different!
Really excited. Thanks for all of the support and encouragement! This really is a great forum.
Another thought – I had this big production of a proposal in my head, probably because it’s been so long (over 6 years). But what happened was super simple and I couldn’t be happier. All thoughts of frustration and resentment were just replaced with joy (and some shock!) So it really is true. Hope this helps some other ladies on those particularly resentful days!
