- Wedding: October 2015
I had a miserable day at work and came home quite upset. SO got home soon after me and sat me down and said, “I want you to see something, with the understanding that this is not the official proposal.” He pulled out a ring box that he has been hiding in his car, with a correctly re-sized ring! It was his mother’s ring, though her finger was tiny when she got married (maybe a size 5?) and mine is most definitely not that small. He insisted on hiding the ring in our room while I was downstairs in the kitchen, but now I feel like I am ACTIVELY waiting! He wants to do it in a special way, and while I am stoked and can barely contain myself, we are not in the position to get married right now. I am anticipating that we will have a long engagement (1-2 years, as we want to get married in the fall), which is fine because we want to pay down debt and save up for the wedding.
But AHHHHH! IM SO EXCITED! Tonight we’re taking it easy, binging on Orange is the New Black and chinese food. I am so lucky to be in love with this man!!
