- Wedding: August 2012
Okay so it happen almost two months ago now, but I thought since I am new here I would share my story and my ring 🙂
So about 18 months ago we agreed that we wouldn’t get married as it wasn’t a high priority and would prefer to spend the money on our first house. Okay so it was me who started the we don’t need to get married conversation!
However, on my birthday – aso Valentine’s Day of this year we were laying in bed (away in a cosy little cottage tucked away in the hills) when I suddenly blurted out that I wanted him to be my husband one day. He just shrugged it off and said “yeah right, guess I’ll think about it”. I wasn’t too bothered by his resposne, a little embarassed and a little shocked by my sudden want to get married!
So then after a little laugh about what I said, he asks me to close my eyes. Silly me got soooo excited thinking ‘he finally bought me the blender I’ve been wanting for SIX months’ hehe.
To my surprise when he asked me to open my eyes there he was, down on one knee with a ring in hand and asked me to marry him!
It was soooo sweet and completely unexpected! We had the biggest laugh afterwards as I kept asking if it was a joke, and he thought it was funny that we were both wanting it at the same time. Although, he had planned it for about a month later, but decided to do it there and then as it was such a nice moment. He proposed with the ring he gave me when we first moved in together 3 years prior.
It was so sweet, he asked me about 10 mins later when I had calmed down if we could marry this September on our anniversary – so special!!
Anyhoo enough blabbering – here’s my ring!
