- Wedding: October 2014
A quick summary of us first… We are 24 & 25 and have been together for 8 1/2 years (i was 15, him 16.. January made 8 1/2) and had moved in together when we were 19 & 20….(his dad past away when he was 17 and left almost everything to him, so after we both were finished with HS, we spent 9 months renovating it to be our ‘forever home’ and moved in the day before my 19th birthday… that was actually my b-day present from him, was to be able to wake up in our first home together)… i actually had to do the dishes & laundry in the bathtub for a month cause i was too impatient to let him finish the plumbing in the kitchen lol…. i love those memories)
ive been ‘waiting’ probaly since we moved in and but due to our age, finances etc, we decided we were ‘too young’ to get married yet, so we agreed to wait a couple of yrs.. then March 2010 came and my waiting had gotten to me and i up and packed my stuff and left him a note and went to my moms while he was at work and we ended up getting back together the very next day (i left because i felt like the cow giving away my milk for free..)… so i move back in and he promises that he wants to marry me and has the same goals/dreams that i have, but finally admits to me that he’s scared of divorce (both us come from broken homes… his not so much, but lots of divorce) and so I decided to drop it and give him his space and some more time……that was 2010
it is now 2013 and i am still waiting, but after last week, im starting to feel like it might be this year because
1) his mother told me last week, that he told her last yr (not sure when last year) that it was getting time for him to propose…
and 2) after his mom told me that, i couldnt help but get excited, cause i actually felt like i had a timeline now…. but last friday i had been googling dresses and bouquets etc, while at work just getting an idea of what i want and i had printed off a pic of a beach wedding cake (we both want to get married on the beach and not in a church) and the topper was a pair of white flip flops and a brown pair made out of icing and i loved it. Well when i got home i wasnt going to show him and just try to “shut it up” for awhile and see what happens. well he seen the pic in my hand and loved the topper as much as i did. then as i was putting it in a folder on the bookshelf, i seen him looking at the calendar beside the computer and it looked like he was pondering about something, then turns to me and says that after we get our income tax money back, we need to hurry and pay off our credit cards (only $800 total so nothing crazy) so that we could reserve the cabin and go to the mountains for our anniversary in July!
oh and theres a 3rd) last time we went to the mountains (we always stay at the same pet friendly cabin.. kindof our tradition now lol) and we were heading to Max Patch where you hike and at the top its a 360 degree view of Tenn & NC and i had said “you know, a moutain top proposal would be awesome and he said “well maybe third times the charm( that was 2011)…and so this will be our 3rd trip there.
so if you were me would u be excited and expecting it too or am i just seeing ‘hints’ where i want to lol
sorry so long!!!!!
