- Wedding: August 2015
very excited to announce that this “waiting bee” is no longer! I got engaged yesterday! I knew it was happening soon, but I didn’t think it was this soon, and he certainly took me by surprise.
My fiance (ah!!) and I have a dog, and have been hosting two foster dogs. Needless to say, it is a lot of energy to manage. It is nice to walk them in the woods, off the leash. So we went on one of our walks, and there was new fallen snow everywhere, it was stunning.
He has spent alot of time in those woods, and knows the trails better than I do, so he took the lead, saying he wanted to take me to a place with a great view of the creek.
I had a flutter in my stomach, thinking “is this it?” but we got to the spot, and he showed me around, and it was stunning. He kissed me, and told me how much he loved me, and it was a wonderful moment.
We started out trek back, but then he turned and we went down to the other side of the trail, where another creek runs. He stood behind me, and pointed into the trees. “do you see anything?” he said. I didn’t see anything. I looked harder. He had carved “K, marry me?” into one of the trunks of an older tree. My heart just about exploded out of my chest, and I turned around to find him on one knee with a ring in his hand. “K, will you marry me?”. There were some tears, some laughter, and I am sure that somewhere in there I squeezed in an “of course!!”
it has been a whirlwind few days filled with calls, tears, hugs, and well wishes. It has been wonderful.
Very excited, and I can’t wait to become a more lively part of this buzzing hive!! More importantly, I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with such a wonderful man.
