- Wedding: July 2011
Background: My hometown (where I am this summer) is roughly 1500 miles away from school, where FI lives now. He flew up to visit this weekend- though we both had disccussed what had to happen this weekend (my family does not visit me at school and he can’t get time off work for another year). We’ve actually been planning the wedding for the past year but for different reasons we had to wait on the ring and proposal and telling my parents.
FI met with Mom and Dad for breakfast this morning. When they got back, Mom sent FI and I to the store for some groceries- at breakfast she had told him of a park nearby that would work well but he couldn’t see it, it was raining, and I wanted to get home. On the drive home he tried to get me to stop at the college “to see what’s going on”. When we got back and went for a walk to the college pond (there’s a college two blocks from my house). We ended up sitting at one of the benches and started talking. Up until now FI had refused to tell me how the talk went- and even hinted to the negative, which I wasn’t too fond of. Eventually he starting talking about our future and then gets on one knee and you guys can tell the rest 😀
By the way, the bench and the ground were rather wet from the rain today. His dress pants and my jeans now have a greenish tint from the bench.
