- Wedding: November 2014
I am so excited to finally have joined Wedding bee.. after almost a year of reading posts, and looking at all the ring threads I joined! I didn’t want to join until I was engaged, otherwise I felt a bit presumptuous. And perhaps like I may be counting my chickens before they hatch.
WELL, I got engaged!! It happened this past weekend! We took a long weekend from work, and went to visit our best friends in the Jax Beach area. We have both been wanting to go to Amelia Island for a while, so we decided to stay a night there and explore. He popped the question in the hotel room, and caught me totally off guard!
I really love my ring! It is so me He did such a good job!
I live in the Tampa area now with my FI.. I moved here from the beaches in the Jacksonville area several years ago. My SO and I have been dating for over 5 years, and living together basically the whole time. We didn’t feel the need to move things faster, but the past year we have really been wanting to take the next step because we both want children. (It does feel SO MUCH BETTER being engaged!!) We were both raised to get married, and then have a family. So we were very set in our ways on that. Because we have been together for so long we don’t feel like a long engagement is necessary. No date is set yet!
I just want to say hi and share my ring!
