- Wedding: October 2014
I have to wait until tomorrow to tell my parents (and therefore all my friends) so I’m telling you now instead!
A couple hours ago, my bf and I went out for lunch. He’d told me that he still didn’t have the ring yet – he bought it online and there were some shipping issues. I was sad, but tried my best to not complain… too much. 😛
So when we went out, he took me to the restaurant we went to on our first date. No alarm bells yet, we go there quite a few times.
After lunch, we went for a walk in the park. At this point I was starting to suspect something was up… it’s a very hot day today, and he’s rather sensitive to heat, so I thought he’d just want to go home after lunch. Nope! He wanted to “see when the pool is open”. I should mention we also went to the park on our first date…
So we walked down the trail by the river, talking about nothing, when he stopped in this one particular spot – a little open area by the river where people often go to feed the ducks… another thing we’d done on our first date. When he turned to me I suddenly knew what was about to happen!
He gave me this little speech, most of which I don’t remember but it included “I lied about not having a ring.” Then he got down on one knee, opened the box, and asked me to marry him 🙂 I managed to squeak out a “yes,” then we hugged and walked back home, this time talking about wedding stuff 🙂
And now for what you all clicked here to see 😉
It’s absolutely perfect 🙂
