- Wedding: April 2013
So a few weeks ago I had found out that my SO bought a ring and that I was thinking he might propose on vacation. Well….
I’ll post the details later, but long story short, we went camping and he proposed on Thursday, the first day we were there. It was pouring rain so he had to divert from his original plan of proposing at sunset on the shore and ask me in the tent instead, but it was perfect. Even though I knew he had a ring, I was completely shocked when it actually happened. I think I’d been waiting so long that I wouldn’t let myself fully believe that it would happen. It took about three days for it to start feeling real but it’s sinking in and I am so, so crazy happy!
My fear all along has been that he would propose because he felt he had to, and not because he wanted to. Well, I found out now that he was so excited that he’s been telling pretty much everyone for the past couple months. All of his family (apparently it was the talk of his sister’s grad party while I was out running an errand), all of his friends, my parents, my sister, his clients…so it goes to show, ladies, have a little faith! I had no idea how much he was looking forward to it, but I’m glad I’ve been holding off on the “when are we getting married” talk for the past few months.
And yes, obligatory ring porn: 2-carat aquamarine with 1/2 carat diamond side stones. I stare at it constantly 🙂
