I’m so excited to finally join you all! My now-fiance just proposed on 2/2/14 and I couldn’t be more thrilled with everything about it!
He took me to a protected butterfly preserve near where we live in California. I had been there before during the summer, but have always wanted to go in the butterfly season (Jan-Feb). He asked me to marry him in the middle of the woods with thousands of monarch butterflies all over the trees. To complete the picture, it started drizzling rain just seconds before he proposed, which made all the butterflies begin to open their wings and fly around to find dry places on the surrounding branches. Afterwards, we wandered around the paths in the rain back to his place. The whole thing felt like I was in a romance novel!
To make things even more perfect, here is my 1.5 carat vintage-inspired e-ring which I am absolutely IN LOVE with. He completely surprised me with the cut and style of the ring and I really don’t think I could have done any better myself.
