- Wedding: January 2014
I just got engaged (well, on July 15th to be exact) and I’m just starting to get all excited about the whole wedding planning process! I was in shock of happiness for the first two weeks so now it’s finally sinking in that I’m actually engaged!
Mr Peonyandroses and I have been together for almost 6 and 1/2 years and met when we were both 18 years old when we were about to start university.
I had the sweetest proposal – he took me to our secret spot where we always go; next to the water with the Sydney Harbour Bridge as our backdrop at 1am under the clearest starry night.
He gave me a note for me to read which turned out to be a “wish pass” that I made for him in our first year of dating that allowed him to have a wish for whatever he wanted from me – I just laughed and teased him that I can’t believe he has still kept it after so many years!
Then Mr Peonyandroses got down on one knee and brought out a box (my heart was jumping like crazy and all that went through my head was, “oh my God, oh my God!”) and proposed, “my wish is for you to be my wife, will you marry me?”
Next thing I knew, he was trying to put the ring on my finger and I said, “you can’t put the ring on my finger yet because I haven’t said yes! But it’s a YES!!!” And Mr Peonyandroses replied with a smirk, “I know you’re not going to say no!”
Haha Mr Peonyandroses is so cheeky!
He was the cutest, yummiest (this is my way of saying good-looking), sweetest, kindest and smartest boy that I grew up with since 18; now he is still the cutest, yummiest, sweetest, kindest and smartest – not a boy, but a man!
I can’t believe how fast time flies so I’m going to enjoy every single minute of it all!
So Bees – let me see your beautiful ring and hear your lovely stories of how you met, how long you’ve been together, how he proposed, etc!
