- Wedding: February 1996
First off, Ahhhhhhhhhhaaahhhhhhhhhhh! I am still in shock! Take me off the Waiting list! My SO is now my FI!
We went hiking in the woods on Saturday. It was gorgeous out. Perfect fall weather. We stopped to picnic at a wonderful little spot on top of the rocks overlooking the water. Buckabear Mountain i believe. 🙂
I was supposed to bring a book to read but forgot, so he hands me this little Storybook. He handmade this thing. All of the pictures he drew and colored himself. Towards the end of the story the Bear and his little Fox love each other so much and Bear asks an important question… Can I marry you?
When i look up from the book in semi-shock, he’s holding this gorgeous wooden ring box (that he MADE, he’s crazy!) and inside it says “Marry Me, Fox”… I burst into tears, formed an audible Yes!!!! and he puts the ring on my finger and i cry some more. I was shaking so hard I couldnt even breath!. He’s smiling from ear to ear and tells me that i can call my parents. I hugged him again and struggled to see my phone through my tears. My mom cried, my dad told me not to lose the ring, and my sister screamed and cried! My friends mother even cried! We’re so blessed to have so many people be so happy for us. Things are so much better when everyone approves! 🙂
I am obsessed with my ring. I told him so many things, stressed over if i’d like it, i wanted round, then square, then emerald. I got the best of both worlds, i trusted him and it paid off! It’s a brilliant cut, cut-corner rectangle, with 6 side stone, milgrained edges and little teeny fleur-de-lis on the sides. 🙂 Perfect. It’s a vintage replica, just our style. We’re overjoyed. the rounded rectangle fits my long fingers so well! he keeps calling my FutureWife, and FoxWife. I love the sound of that! 🙂
I’m at work and the crowd of screaming ladies just walked away ao i’m writing this fast for you guys! 🙂
Here are the pics promised!
ps- my sister who called dibs on 2013 is happy for us and hasn’t given my any trouble when i said maybe may 2013. 🙂
