- Wedding: September 2014
As of last night, SO FI and I are officially engaged!
I got home from work and was bummed out cuz of the crappy weather oustide and the fact that it was such a LONG week. I was also kinda bummed b/c he’d told me earlier in the day that my ring still wasn’t ready yet. When FI got home from work and saw my face, he asked me right away what was wrong. I told him the truth and he said he totally understood.
He went over to his dresser and took something out. I was lying on the bed so I couldn’t see exactly what he was doing. He sat down next to me and told me how much he loved me. He told me that when he saw the ring, he thought it was beautiful and knew it would be perfect for me. He said that he’s always been afraid of change, but that he knew it was time to take the next step. He said he’d thought about waiting for the “perfect moment” but that he didn’t know when that would come and he didn’t want to waste any more time.
He told me to get off the bed, and then he got down on one knee. We both started tearing up. He said “stargazer, will you marry me?” and I of course said yes!
And now, the ring! 🙂
eta: apparently the jewelry store called him later in the day, right as he was leaving work, to tell him the ring had just come in. So he actually was telling the truth when he told me it wasn’t ready yet, but then luckily it was ready just a short while later! 🙂
