- Wedding: April 2013
Hello everyone! After lurking for a few weeks and finally figuring out how to post from my Android, I will introduce myself… I am a 25 year old from Elyria, OH. Annnnd I AM ENGAGED!!! Yay! It’s only been a few days so saying it, typing it, thinking it is still kinda weird but in a good way lol. Let me bore you with the details. FI and I have only been dating for about 6 months, and have lived together most of that time. Not your average couple, I know call me crazy but we just work. Anyway, FI had planned on having both sides of our family to our house on Wednesday to have Thanksgiving since I had to work on Thanksgiving all day. So we made a boatload of food and had my mom, sister, and grandmother over along with his mom, and closest uncles. Unbeknownst to me he had planned on proposing while everyone was there. But that didn’t happen. We ate, enjoyed our company and after everyone left and things were cleaned up and put away we collapsed onto the couch together exhausted. It really was very quiet and peaceful, no distractions just sitting there enjoying the christmas tree we put up the night before. FI had mentioned early that morning that he wanted to talk to me about something and I had forgotten until that very moment. I had no idea what it might be but wasn’t too worried. So he turns towards me and takes my hand. He says I have been doing a lot of thinking and I want to move back to GA (thats where hes from, whole other post lol) then he says I was wondering if you would go with me? My heart is beating fast because he is so serious and although we had talked about this before it was in a casual manner. I’m silent for a minute and then he says what do you think about that? I say of course I would miss my family and friends but my heart belongs to you, so yes I will go with you. Then he takes my hands and squeezes them and he looks at me so deeply I almost started crying just because that very moment I felt a spark and I know that he is all I will ever need. Corny? Yes, but so true. Anyways! While holding my hands he says wellll… What would you think if I asked you to be my wife? Shut the front door!!! Needless to say the tears were a-flowing then. I’m sure you bees can figure out the rest 🙂 So theres my story, it may not have been the most creative or outrageous proposal but to me it was so sweet and intimate and I wouldn’t have it any other way… So I guess I should also note he proposed without a ring. Our budget is pretty tight right now (hence why he wants to go back to GA) but I’m ok with it. I know once he can afford it I can have my dream ring… Until then I will continue to drool over all of the lovelies here 🙂 I am so glad to be apart of the Bee community and look forward to all things Bee!
