- Wedding: October 2016
Hard to believe that 6 days have passed already, but on 06/30/13 (the 7yr anniversary of our first date) my FI proposed!!!
I helped him pick out the ring several months ago, so I knew it was coming, but he still managed to surprise me!!!
Two days before the proposal, my mother called me a said we were having a family meeting at her house. Since we have a huge family and there’s always something going on, I didn’t think anything of it.
The day of my mom came and picked me up, and I was amazed by the huge spread (of food) and the amount of people who were there for this “meeting.” I was starving so I came right in and starting making a plate which was promptly snatched from me because the food hadn’t been blessed.
Then my FI said that he would bless the food (hmm). At that moment my best friend joins our meeting with some lame excuse about being in the neighborhood (sure). I’m definitely confused at this point and say “what the hell?” out loud though FI is about to say grace (sorry)!!!
He starts out by thanking god for the food and then said that he is also thankful for me!!! He said that I am a beautiful person and he is so lucky to have me (heart is racing at this point and I’m reminding myself to breathe).
Then he said that he loved me, got down on his knee, and asked me to marry him!!! I was trying my best to keep it together and managed to say yes before the water works began!!! It was such a beautiful moment for us and my family, and we are truly over joyed!!!
To all my bees who are waiting please keep your head up and stay patient. When the person you love asks you to spend the rest of your life with them, there is no better feeling, and it is truly worth The Wait!!!
And now….THE RING!!!
