I’M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it actually happened.
Yesterday (monday) was our 6th anniversary, and we went up to my family cottage on Thursday night for a little vacation. Yesterday morning, FI told me he wanted to wake up early and make me breakfast for our anniversary. He told me to stay in bed while he set it up.
My cottage has a bunch of yellow flowers all over the lawn, and he picked one and put the ring box in a plastic bag and then tied it to the stem of the flower and planted it in the beach.
When he got me to come out for breakfast, I walked outside and there were a bunch of ducks swimming around the beach, so I grabbed some bird seed and started feeding them. While feeding them, Mr.memo asked me what this yellow flower was doing in the beach and asked me if I planted it there last night? I looked at him confused and just said “uhmm no?” He bent down and started pulling the flower out of the sand and I was thinking “wtf are you doing?” and then I noticed there was a ring box attached to it. I totally thought he was trying to punk me! lol I honestly thought he was gonna have earings in there or something. He started telling me how much he loves me and that he’s wanted to marry me for a long time. Then, he opened the ring box, and asked me to marry him!!!! Of course, I said YESSS!! I was totally crying!!!!
Time for ring porn!!!!
The ring is completely perfect! It’s everything I ever wanted, and I’m so incredibly happy!!!!! I still feel like it isn’t real
And, for all of you waiting bees out there, he told me 3 DAYS BEFORE HE PROPOSED, that it would be “WITHIN 6 MONTHS!!!!”

Thanks ladies! I’ve loved all the support while being a waitingbee!
OMG I am so happy he was bluffing! lol It totally worked though. A few months ago, I totally thought it was gonna happen on our anniversary, but over the months he completely made me believe it wasn’t gonna happen that day.
