My boy took me ring shopping today! Might seem normal to lots of you as it happens all the time these days, but you haven’t met my boy. Today was our 6.5 years so he thought it would be a good time to have a look. He has always been a complete commitment-phobe. We started traveling 3.5 months ago, and about 4 weeks ago he said he was ready to get married. It was the most romantic, amazing thing I’d ever heard and I was buzzing the whole night! Now, a month later, I am almost positive it will happen in the next 4-5 weeks, going by hints that he’s given me (although he is very good at keeping this a huge surprise!), and today we looked at rings and he was the one leading me around to all the shops, and talking to the shop assistants about the rings. Normally he’s running in the opposite direction of ring shops, he’d never be seen dead walking into one and he would NEVER talk to shop assistants about engagement rings (he’s so shy when it comes to these things usually!). But today he was completely comfortable, and looked confident that this is what he wanted to do. I think he’ll definitely get the ring before we leave Holland in a weeks time because he told me he trusts Dutch jewelery stores (he’s half Dutch so it’s second best to getting one in Australia). He even had the marriage talk with his older no-where-near-married brother, which is a HUGE thing because it shows his family that he’s close to it!
So it’s all happening, and I know it will happen really soon, but for some reason waiting has just become like 110% harder!! I thought it was hard before, but now that I’m so close it seems impossible to wait or to stop thinking about it! I’m so excited and happy, I just want it to happen already!
Are you close and feeling like this? Or for you engaged/married bees, did you feel like this?!
It’s such an exciting time, so hard to contain myself!
