- Wedding: December 2015
I’m engaged! My SO couldn’t wait anymore and popped the question, on bended knee, May 17th in his parents’ driveway since that was where we had both of our first kisses (in high school, then again when we actually started dating). After a crazy whirlwind, I’m finally getting back to the hive to let you all know.
I told my now FI that I didn’t need a ring to be engaged, but he wouldn’t have it. He decided to get a promise ring to propose with and for me to wear while he saves up for my actual engagement ring.
Here’s my sparkly while I wait for my “upgrade.” I’m surprised at how nice it looks on my 8.5 sized finger!
Our engagement will be long, because my mother wants us to wait until I’m finished with my graduate studies. We don’t want a summer or beach wedding (we live at the beach), so we’re shooting for December 2015 OFFICIALLY. Thank you to everyone who helped me get through the long waiting days, as well as the stories and advice everyone has given. I will be changing my username since it no longer applies. Thank you again!
