- Wedding: August 2012
FI proposed, last Friday, in the lobby of the Holiday Inn Waterfront Kingston, just as we were about to leave for his brother’s graduation ball. It was very low-key, very spur-of-the-moment, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. :]
We had reconciled back in March after a 10-month split, and with his recent talks on Mother’s Day weekend about him wanting to get married/TTC our second by the end of the year, I knew it had to be coming.. but I wouldn’t have guessed it would be so soon (I like to joke with him about the fact that he didn’t even make me wait 2 months for it, whereas when he first proposed, it was close to 9 years)!
He planned to do it while we were getting ready in our room with DD (she was “helping [me] get pretty”), but unfortunately, the babysitters showed up early, and he thought it would be awkward to do it in front of them. 😛 I wonder if/how he was going to incorporate DD in it, though.. hmm..
As we were waiting for our (very classy) taxi, he pulled me aside, and told me how beautiful I looked–but, that I was missing a little something. Before I knew it, he pulled my ring out of his pocket, told me that he loved me more than anything, and asked me to marry him (again).
I’m so, so happy to have a second chance with the man of my dreams.. and, my pretty sparkly back on my finger where it belongs! HA!
