- Wedding: June 2014
Well, first let me explain the back story. My FI’s father died when we was only 6years old, in a tragic car accident. His mother has never remarried, and still speaks of her husband regularly. i can only believe that they had one of those magical everlasting loves you always dream of. While on vacation with the family this past July she gave us her 1ct pear diamond that was in her her engagement ring. She has been wearing it around her neck for the last 25 years. I was in tears when she gave it to us and said that, “She and Gary only had 11 years together, but she hopes that we get many many more.”
We starting shopping for settings as soon as we got home. We finally found the setting that we both knew was the one, but at the time it was out of our price range. We budgeted, talked, and planned to return A month or so later. Well we did, and Yesterday, was the day we were suppose to call the store and make sure the diamond was being set and would be ready for pick up on Friday the13th.
The plan was that he would wait and surprise me with a proposal when I wasn’t expecting it since being gifted the diamond and shopping for the setting together had taken some of the surprise away.
He text me at work that the jeweler had left early and had not set our stone,and that it wasn’t going to be ready till Monday or maybe even Tues. I initially had a thought that maybe he was up to something, but 2 phone calls later, and by the time I was home from work I had totally bought the story.
We decided to go out to dinner at a resturant near our home which is nothing out of the ordinary or overly fancy. I was totally shocked when after dinner he dropped to one knee outside by the car. I initially thought he was kidding, but when I saw my beautiful ring I knew this was it, and he had fooled me. He told me he loved me and that there was no one else he rather spend the rest of his life with. I felt like my heart was about to burst out of my chest. I just starting hugging and kissing him, and in all surprise and shock I forgot to say YES!! Lol but obviously it was a YES!
I could hardly sleep last night because I was so excited.
So that’s it Bees, that is our story. Not what I expected but completly sweet and perfect.
