I am thrilled to announce that as of Friday evening, we are now engaged! We kind of had it planned out beforehand (chose, purchased and picked up the ring together (kind of like we do pretty much everything else), and had a dinner date to a nicer restaurant in our area. As we were getting ready to leave my now fiancé (!) pulled out the ring and put it on me, with a simple “Will you marry me?” to which I replied that I would be honoured. I then surprised him with a watch I had purchased for him as well. Then we went and celebrated with a fantastic meal.
He’s not the typical romantic type, but he was getting excited and kind of emotional with the start of actual plans, and it was so nice to see! We got to celebrate on Saturday evening with my BF and her hubby, and my daughter cried when we told her, she was so happy!
This is a second marriage for both of us, we’ve been together going on 4 years, and we are going to have a lot of people really happy for us, given the past circumstances.
Not a big flashy story, but it suits us perfectly. 😀
Here’s a picture of my new bling (I LOVE it, though truthfully, I’m more excited about actually being engaged!):
