- Wedding: October 2011
It’s been such a long time since I last posted here!
And… OMG there’s been so much progress these last few weeks I hardly know where to start. A couple of months ago, after a long, straining time of constant bickering whenever we broached the W word (basically because I thought he was “not so sure”, but whenever things started to move and pace up I’d freak out, and wonder why was I freaking out, maybe I wasn’t sure? Change-related anxiety? Control freakness? Emotional rollercoaster, if you know what I mean)- he told me he thought we’d be engaged by the end october.
Now, I’ve never been one to keep it shut (no ability to make use of Mr. Bee’s great 3-step plan here), so I’ve been giddy with excitement all this time. Of course I still get kind of anxious, but I’ve been dealing with anxiety since I was a little girl… no news here. Especially since we’d probably move to the States a year after getting married (we’re both Chilean, and he’s going for a PhD), and I had to move a lot when I was young b/c of my dad’s job. But that’s another story 🙂
Anyway… we went on vacation to WDW & Miami with his parents on July, and wouldn’t you know… he asked me to go look at rings at Tiffany! (MAJOR excitement here, since there’s no Tiffany in Chile). We looked around, I tried on a few rings and then he said he wanted to buy the ring back in Chile, and had gotten lots of ideas in terms of the styles I like.
Back home, we went ring “looking” again, checked out my chilean ring size, looked some more… I CAN BARELY CONTAIN MYSELF!!! My friends have been an enormous support (whenever I get upset or impatient because of the waiting, I dial their “emergency numbers” )
FINALLY (I’m finishing here, I promise) last monday was our 7 year anniversary. He was down with the flu, so I grabbed some pizzas and we celebrated at his apartment. Feverish and all, he gave me some gorgeous flowers and a card that said “Even though our anniversary date will change (!!!!!!!!), I’ll always love these 7 years together”– something like that.
I’m so in love with this guy, I can’t wait to be his wife!!! 🙂
