- Wedding: April 2013
So, after dating for 3 years, and almost 11 months, my boyfriend (now fiancee!) proposed yesterday, on St. Patricks day! I’ve known he bought the ring two weeks ago, and have been anxious ever since I figured that out!
So finally the day arrived, and I was really hoping that yesterday would be it. I guess I just had a feeling! We ran errands in the morning, and then he wanted to drive around apartment searching, so we got dressed nicely… (I was advised to always look cute), and headed to our favorite area of Charlotte, Myers Park, where we happened to go to school at Queens University. After a little driving around he wanted to walk around campus!
At first he really wanted to find the Gazebo that has romantic significance but since it was closed due to being in a construction area, we walk towards the main circle of campus, to the benches in that area. He tells me has a gift for me, and that I have been very patient in this whole process, and that even though he doesn’t yet have a ring he wanted to show me how commited he is to me. So he pulls out his fraternity pin, which is very special and I knew it meant a lot to him to give me that. This is called pinning, to the non greeks out there! So after that he asks if it will tide me over, and I nod, but before I can really process it he’s reaching back into his pocket and there’s my ring! I’m crying before he even asks, and he get’s down on one knee… and it was unbelievable!
So after I go find some tissues to wipe away my eye make up we wonder around campus, to the exact spot we first met… All the while I’m just staring at my perfect ring and him, feeling like I was floating on a cloud! We then had a wonderful lunch nearby at one of our favorites, providence cafe… It was a BEAUTIFUL day. And later that night we celebrated with close friends, and I could not of asked for more. Absolute perfection!
