- Wedding: November 2016
After a few months in the Any Day thread, my day ended up being yesterday, March 25th!
My SO and I had planned a small weekend getaway outside of the city before all of the Easter gatherings.
We woke up Friday morning, made some coffee and hung out in bed for a bit. We have a couple’s journal that we write in each day for 3 years, and he pulled it out and said “Look what I remembered!” so we caught up on the previous couple days, and then we got to March 25th. He handed me the book after he took his turn to write for the day. All I saw was that he scratched out the question for the day. I saw the words “marry me?” as he got out of bed, and all I could manage was “oh my god!”
He got down on one knee beside me, I started to cry; he gave a wonderful, heartfelt speech, and asked me to marry him!
I kissed him, hugged him, and said “Yes!”
He had thrown me off the trail all week, telling me he had to send the ring back because it came in the wrong metal, and that he was still waiting on a proposal prop to come in the mail. All made up, and he said “You knew too much and I wanted to surprise you!” I had NO idea he was going to propose because I’m gullible and totally believed him when he said he didn’t have the ring back yet.
We told everyone the news yesterday, but are waiting to tell my maternal grandparents today. I’m their only granddaughter and really want to see them when we tell them 😀
My uncle also emailed to tell me March 25th was my paternal grandparents’ wedding anniversary! Things just feel so right!
