After almost 4 years together my SO (now fiance ) surprised me with the most beautiful Christmas proposal!!
This Christmas was very special for both of us. We met in college and this Christmas, after a few years out on our own, we’re finally exactly where we want to be, doing what we want to be doing, living the life we’ve been working so hard for
This was also the first year we had a Christmas tree together. Earlier this month we put our tree up and decorated our very first ornaments together. The very first one we made says “Our First Ornament” on it. So, this morning, FI and I exchange our gifts. He went first. Then it was my turn. As Christmas approached I thought more and more that maybe this was going to be the day. A couple of days ago, though, he put my gift under the tree. It was a big box. I was very confused, haha.
So this morning, he hands me my gift. I start to unwrap it and when I flip it over it’s a box of ornaments. I was then confused because our tree clearly wasn’t going to be up that much longer. They were gold (we both love yellow gold) and we had been talking about adding a few more ornaments to our tree this year, so I thanked him and thought it would be a nice way to spend time together later in the day. He then said that while this wasn’t something I had asked for, he thought we could decorate one more set of ornaments together this year (confirming my thought). In fact, he said, had already started one. At that moment, he told me which one it was that he started. I grabbed the top and rolled it over. On the other side it read, “Will You Marry Me?” He got down on one knee and it all happened exactly like I thought it would!!! While I thought today might be the day, I was still SO surprised and SOOOOOO excited!! Today has been the most amazing day!!! It was the perfect Christmas proposal!!

Thanks for all the congratulations!!! I would LOVE to put up ring pics right now. Unfortunately, my ring came in SO close to Christmas that when my FI saw the setting wasn’t exactly what he’d ordered – the jeweler had a mix up when they had to trade a white gold setting for my yellow gold they ended up with a slightly different setting – he went through with the Christmas proposal as planned (and I’m so happy he did ) and today we got everything sorted out. I’m having the new setting resized and diamond remounted and will have it (hopefully) within this next week! Believe me, I want to put up pics as much as you all want to see them, haha!
Until pics are up, here’s a description of what the ring will look like: it’s a beautiful thin/petite yellow gold solitaire with platinum prongs and slight tapering up toward a 1 ct round brilliant stone. Absolutely perfect. I’m so excited to get the final ring and I know the wait will be as worth it as the wait for the proposal
@sheepandbear: Thank you!!
@Squirrelz15: Thanks! 🙂
@sassy411: I’ll definitely put a pic of the ornament up!
@cherriesandcream: Thanks 🙂 Ornament pic is coming! Ring pics will be a little longer unfortunately (see above for the ring story)
@daffodil89: Thanks! We’ve told the story so many times now and love it more and more each time 🙂
@kandykane1: Thank you! It was amazing!
@fvsoccer: Thanks, fvsoccer!
