ive been lurking the bee for a whole now but this is my first post. Feels good!
I have the the most amazingly kind and compassionate man who treats me like a princess. About three weeks ago he took me to design my engagement ring. I picked a gorgeous stone and the jeweller sketched it up for us… Just over 7 carats total weight!
Now comes the waiting! I’m going mad! I don’t know when he is going to propose. I hate surprises and am a massive control freak.
Advice ladiea? How do I shut my mouth and let it happen??

Tomallo: I’ve been where you are and boy is it hard!
The bee really helped me keep my mouth shut! I also learned that the more I pushed for it the longer I was waiting. I know it’s hard and you have to be so so patient. But when it happens it’s so worth all the hard work of keeping quiet! I got engaged on June 13th and am getting married in 30 days time.
I will say that once he does propose I felt a bit of sadness that I was no longer a waiting bee and I was no longer anticipating the excitement of the proposal. But I’m happier than I have ever been now and am marrying my best friend in 30 days time 🙂

Tomallo: I totally hear ya on the hating surprises and being a control freak thing. I’ve been having a hard time just living in the moment, enjoying “us”, and having faith that he WILL indeed ask!
Just know that he’s definitely GOING to ask, maybe anytime now (!!!), and that it will be worth every second of waiting. Especially with 7 carats in tow, schnikies I’d be happy waiting until I’m full of cobwebs for something like that lol!
Just tell him he’d better make the wait worth it, and to secure that notion, maybe send him one of those “what not to do” articles so you can rest easy he won’t screw up the proposal 😉 I doubt he will – I’m sure it will be the kind of beautiful we thought only existed in dreams. Can’t wait to read about how he asks!
