- Wedding: August 2012
So I kind of thought we might be getting engaged sometime soon due to the way my SO was acting, but I was still shocked when we proposed to me. I was sedated for a medical test on Friday (the test had been rescheduled to be a month earlier) and he told me later he was planning on popping the question that night. Since we were supposed to be at Shelburne Farms for his work party that evening we decided to go on Saturday… but I was still too out of it from my sedation drugs. I finally felt better Sunday and he was very adamant about going to this farm, I just figured he wanted to get out of the house and do something on such a pretty day.
We went on this walking trail around the grounds and when we got the to lake he started to hug and kiss me. My FI is normally very sweet so I thought nothing of it until he started his proposal speech! He was saying how much he loved me as his girlfriend, best friend, roommate (a joke between us!), travel companion but that he really wanted me to be one thing… at this point I am catching on a little and I think I mustered up the words, “What’s that!?” and he said my wife, got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I felt like I was going to faint… I don’t know if I was swooning or it was the drugs still in my system but I snapped out of it and said YES!
I don’t know about everyone else but there was really zero thoughts going through my head during it, I wasn’t even thinking, “We are getting engaged!” until after. It certainly took awhile to sink for me. A nice couple came by the trail a few minutes later and took some photos of us.
