- Wedding: August 2013
My sweetie and I met through an online dating site this summer and hit it off straight away. Our first date was something stupid like 8 hours long lol. From then on we were basically inseperable!
Sept 3 he officially asked me to be his girlfriend. I’d been having coffee with his SIL and we were meeting his brother and him for dinner. When we got there he had these flowers:
We discussed marriage fairly soon after that as neither one of us felt that waiting a super long time was helpful. When you know, you know! A month or so ago we went and looked a few different engagement rings so he could get an idea of what I liked and my ring size.
At Christmas he asked my Dad’s permission, who said he’d be a fool to say no. And my daughter’s permission, who said YES YES YES!
January 3 we went out for dinner with my daughter (8) at the Keg. It was a combo of us officially dating for 4 months, New Years (DD was with her dad on actual NYE) and DD’s birthday (the 8th). We got all dressed up, fancy dresses for me and DD and a suit for him. After dinner we went back to my house and he gave me an anniversary gift.
In it was a die-cast model of my favorite car (Ferrari). When I pulled it out I noticed that under the hood was all lit up. Opened up the hood and sitting on a piece of velvet was the ring! HE was down on one knee and had managed to get the Top Gear (fav TV show lol) theme song playing. He asked me to marry him!!
Obviously I said yes 😀 Now we’re in full planning mode as we’re aiming for early August for the wedding!! SO EXCITED!
