Some of you know but my SO (FI now!!!) and I took a trip back home to visit family in lower Michigan.
We took a romantic trip up north to Traverse City, MI, which is a lovely vacation town on a huge bay off of Lake Michigan way up north! We spent a few days bumming around town, hitting up breweries and shops (and fudge, yum!). On the second night, we went out to a fancy restaurant on Old Mission Penninsula. After dinner and dessert, SO asked me to call our ride to come get us so I was thinking “OK, this isn’t happening I guess!”. We walked outside to wait the 20 or so minutes and sat on a wicker loveseat facing the bay and the sunset.
He turns to me with a nervous smile and starts to propose. I’m so nervous I squeak out “Are you gonna get on one knee??” So he does and holds my hand, our faces nearly touching, and says “MsKnitter, will you marry me?” Lots of hugging, kissing, and smiling ensued and I didn’t actually cry until a few minutes later when it sunk in.
LOTS of champagne (from the restaurant and courtesy of our lovely hotel) came after as we called friends and family from nearly every timezone in the US. We’re so happy 🙂 Still on vacation and can’t wait to start planning when we get back to New Mexico!
The wait was worth it for sure 🙂
Stats: Setting is white gold Valina Bridal (with a really pretty Euro shank!) and sidestones are diamond, center stone is a 7.5mm FB Moissanite! It’s so beautiful and I’m totally in love 🙂
