- Wedding: March 2012
I have been reading Weddingbee for a while, but I am just now posting because we are finally engaged! We took a trip to the mountains for our three year anniversary/his birthday. On the second day of our trip, after I got ready for dinner, he asked me if I wanted to take some pictures on the balcony of our cabin. I said yes, and we went outside. I saw that he had something sitting on top of the cover of the hot tub, and it was covered with a towel. I knew it was probably a scrapbook, because on each of our anniversaries, he has given me a scrapbook with all of our pics from the year before :o) So he told me to sit down in the rocking chair, and he put the scrapbook in my lap. Then he said “before you open it, I just wanted to let you know that I didn’t quite have time to finish it, so we will have to finish it together.” I said that was fine, and I opened it up. The first page spelled out in scrapbook letters “Will you marry me?” When I looked, he was down on one knee with the ring. I immediately started crying happy tears, and my first words were “Holy crap! Are you kidding me?” haha. Then I said “Yes!!!!”
Now, we have a ton of “engagement pictures” from our trip to fill the scrapbook :o) Our wedding is still a while away, but I can’t wait to start planning!!
