I’ve been a long time lurker and now a first time poster! I have to say, you ladies are the sweetest and most supportive group of women and I’m so excited to be here!
I recently got back from a spring break trip to Bimini, Bahamas with my fiance and another couple. I had been (not so) patiently waiting for a proposal for a few years now, FI and I have been together 9 years tomorrow. One of the nights of our trip, we went to watch the sunset on the beach. Fi and I were sitting next to our friends most of the night and then he grabbed my hand and pulled to me to my feet right as the sun was touching the horizon. I’ll admit, I was sort of annoyed at this point (not suspecting anything!) and asked him why we were blocking our friends’ view of the sunset. All of a sudden he was one one knee, crying, telling me how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. I started crying too and don’t even remember him actually asking “will you marry me,” though he swears he did. I nodded yes and he took out the most beautiful shell and nestled inside was the ring! I’m over the moon excited and can’t wait to start planning!
