- Wedding: September 2013
I am proud to announce that as of a week and a half ago I am ENGAGED! I’m so excited I’m not really sure what to do with myself.
So where to begin, on Saturday Sept 8th I worked an early shift with the plan of running errands and maybe going to a walk with my boyfriend when I got off. But that afternoon when I arrived home, I was told that we were going to take a little detour to my favourite boutique to “See if they might have any nice vintage rings”.
Inside i must say that I was jumping up and down a little, but I was trying to keep calm. When we arrived at the store the shop owner was working, and had recognized us both from our many trips to her store. And after a few minutes of searching I found the most amazing ring, and the moment I tried it on I think everyone knew it was the one. So the Fi decided to buy it right then and there but didn’t ask yet. we continued to run our errands with me skipping on cloud nine for the rest of our journey, and then once we arrived home he went into his office while I got supper ready. About a half hour later, while I was vaccumming he came into the living room made me sit down on a chair, got down on one knee, and proposed! All while our 11 month old english bulldog whined and pawed at us because we werent paying attention to him lol
I was crying so hard that I didn’t even say yes I just noded, and then after i calmed down he reminded me of that, and I gave the official Yes!
It’s not your traditional big elaborate proposal, but this just suited us. The best part was that he waited to ask me until after he had asked for my mother and sisters permission.
No professional pictures yet, but here’s one i took myself. It’s a 1920’s art deco estate piece.
