- Wedding: August 2013
I’m a long time lurker, first time poster and I’m writing my first post for a very exciting reason !
I’m finally engaged to my wonderful boyfriend, now fiancé !
Johann and I have dating for almost 7 years and you bet I was ready to have a ring on it ! 😉
It happened two days before my birthday, on August 14th, with a very low-key, at home proposal.
I kinda figured it would happen since I had found a jewelery box in his backpack a few days before…It wasn’t intentional, I just wanted to pack him his lunch since we were running late that morning and bam ! Here was a tiny box but I didn’t know what was in it. Needless to say, I was dying to know and I immediately told him that I had found something I wasn’t supposed to found. He seemed really disappointed but kept a straight face so I kinda figured it was an engagement ring but I wasn’t sure.
On Tuesday evening, I was starting to feel lost and nervous because nothing was happening and my BFF was coming over to stay with us for the rest of the week, and as much as I love her, I wouldn’t have felt comfortable if he had proposed in front of her and her husband so I was absolutely convinced that nothing would happen.
He then asked me what was wrong and I said that I was still thinking about what I had found in his backpack and it was “torturing” me because I was hoping I wouldn’t be disappointed.
At this point he said “I won’t torture you any longer” and he knelt down, said wonderful things about us and asked me if I wanted to be his wife. I remember saying something like “Hmm…bwaaaah…*tears*…hmmm” and finally managing getting a YES out !
We hugged, kissed and cried and then, a wonderful evening was ahead of us : rose petals, bubble bath, candlelit dinner…I couldn’t have been happier !
I thought it was very romantic that he asked in our house because we’ve just spent the last year building it together, doing everything inside ourselves and it’s been quite a challenging experience.
Anyway, enough rambling, I just wanted to share a bit of my magical moment with you guys !
Thanks for reading !
