- Wedding: February 2016
So, my SO and I have been together almost 3 years, and we are moving to China for a year in October! We have talked openly in the past about getting married when we get back, starting a family, etc… But I really didn’t expect a proposal until we got back from China. Actually, apparently neither did he!
On June 30th we were at the wedding of two of our very good friends, with all our other closest friends in attendance as well. My high school best friend (we’re almost 30 now) was the best man, and he gave a speech that had everyone in tears. He spoke about how the groom was a rock for everyone who knew him, and how his new bride was just as wonderful, how they were meant to be together & all that wonderful lovey stuff! Well, when his speech was over, I looked at my SO, and he had tears in his eyes. He took my hand, and said “Khaleesi… Would you marry me?”
Well at that point (he’s a bit of a jokester) I rolled my eyes and said “oh sure”. But then he took my silver ring off my right hand and said, “I mean it. I want you to marry me. Will you?”
I was pretty shocked, but never hesitated! I said yes! And then he put my silver ring on my ring finger, and said “wow… We’re engaged! Oh, and don’t worry, I’ll get you a real ring 🙂 I promise.”
We haven’t told our families yet as he wants to wait until the ring comes in (he ordered sol165 from moissaniteco – I LOVE IT) but it’ll hopefully be here in a couple of weeks!
