“Since the world didn’t end, let’s create a new world together”!
Yep, I’m engaged!! Friday night was “date night” and it started off with me coming home to dozen lovely red roses. Next, dinner at one of our favorite places (we went there on our fisrt real date). Then we went to Peidmont Park to go ice skating at the park…so sweet. We did that last year around this time and we had so much fun. After we skated for a while he asked if I wanted to go for a walk in the park. When we walked outside we saw a line of hose-drawn carraiges so he immediately ran back inside and purchased a horse-drawn carraige ride for us.
I thought it was just a wonderful date night but I was a little suspicious at the amount of moolah the mister was spending. We rarely spend much on dates, but I wasn’t going to complain!
He proposed at one of the most scenic spots on the ride. He asked the driver to stop a minute, pointed out something cool in the skyline, and when I turned back to comment on it he was on one knee in the carraige! I said “Yes! Yes! Of Course!” and started bawling haha. One of my first questions was “did my mom know?!” because she is TERRIBLE at keeping secrets. Lo and behold she kept this one a secret for TWO WEEKS! I was so proud of her lol.
After the ride we met a few friends at the local watering hole for a small celebration. It was PERFECT! I love my FIANCE (man I love saying that!0 so much and I am so excited to be his wife!
And, of course, the mandatory ring shot:
