- Wedding: October 2013
Hello bees! It’s been far too long since I have posted. I used to post a lot about a year or two ago. I think the last time I posted, I thought J was going to propose on my birthday, but he ended up landscaping our property instead. Still beautiful, but not my Mr. Sparkly!
Since then, we have had a BEAUTIFUL daughter who will be a year old on the 24th of this month.
So a couple of weeks ago, I was driving to work in J’s truck (we only have the one vehicle right now) and I was wearing sunglasses. It got very cloudy and stormy out of nowhere, so I lifted up the center console to store my sunglasses. Well, lo and behold…There it was. A perfectly perfect Zales box. Was it earings? A necklace? My birthday is coming up on the 16th so maybe it’s just something for my birthday? I had to look. And I was shocked. It was a ring….MY ring that I have had picked out for years. OMG. HE HAS IT.
So now I am just waiting. Like I said my birthday is on the 16th, and then we are having a party with all of our friends and family on the 22nd for our daughter’s 1st birthday. My brother, who I reconnected with last year after 10 years of not speaking, will be there. Our father passed away in 2000 so of course I want him to be the one to give me away and everything. How perfect would it be for him to be there when J proposes?!
So now I am just waiting. But there is a strong light at the end of this tunnel! I don’t know which is worse….Going back to the way it was before and not knowing anything about when he was going to propose, or knowing he has the ring and waking up everyday thinking “is today the day?!”
I love him so much. I am so excited I am finally going to be his wife!
