I can’t believe it, but this afternoon my boyfriend proposed! I have a fiance! It’s so weird!
We’ve been on vacation with his family in Hawaii for the past week or so, and he had been carrying the ring around the whole time, looking for the perfect opportunity. Today was our last full day, so after playing on the beach, we moved to the shade and he opened his camera case. He said he had been looking for the perfect moment, and then he asked me to marry him! I thought he was joking or something, it was so surreal, so I kept asking “Really?! Are you serious?” and finally said yes. It was fantastic. I was so surprised, and definitely did not expect it AT ALL on this trip, so that was perfect indeed.
He got me an emerald cut solitaire, but his plan is to reset it into a more vintagey looking setting. I posted awhile ago about my crazy-pants ring ideas spreadsheet, and since I had told him about it, but we never actually looked at it together. Turns out he knew where to find it and stole it off my computer! So sneaky, and I never had the slightest idea. I am also really proud of myself, I decided before Christmas to not think about it too hard or bring it up until after February, and I didn’t!
Anyway, so now I’m engaged and don’t have to use the word “Boyfriend” anymore!!! The “finace” thing is going to take some getting used to, though! Thanks waiting ladies for keeping me sane, and for giving me a place to vent a bit!
