- Wedding: September 2013 - The Skinner Barn
Hey ladies! So, technically I’ve been engaged for a bit but I didnt have a ring, Basically, my fiance is in the Army and we made the decision for him to reenlist and for us to marry over Skype (Long story here). I’ve been planning for a while without a ring while I waited for my wonderful man to come home for Christmas.
My fiance came home on leave on December 23rd and I picked him up from the airport in Vermont. He told me that he had a whole evening planned for us and that we should go back to the hotel we got for the night so that I could change into something super warm. I knew that there was a ring in the near future but I had no idea what the plans were for the day. Unfortunately, I was sick as a dog with an intense cold but I tried to make the best out of it. Once we bundled up, he drove us over to Stowe where a horse-drawn sleigh was waiting for us. We went on a sleigh ride in the lightly falling snow during which my lovely fiance pulled out the beautiful ring he had picked out and (needlessly) asked me to marry him.
We ended the night by going out to a nice dinner to celebrate and enjoying finally being together after 6 months apart. I just dropped him off at the airport this morning for another 2 months until I travel up to Alaska to visit him. I can’t wait to see my beautiful fiance again and to become his wife in September 🙂
