I’m engaged and so excited!!! My fiance (wow, it still feels weird to say!) was visiting me over his spring break, and we were having a great week just hanging out. Then on our last night, he made dinner, and we relaxed on the balcony afterwards. Eventually he revealed some notecards on which he had written different things he liked about me (he was worried he’d forget something or get chocked up =) ). Then he got down on one knee and proposed, followed by much excitement and hugs. We had an early flight the next morning, but were too wound-up to pack, so we celebrated over our favorite ice cream. I actually love that he wrote everything down, because I’m the type who likes to save that sort of thing and re-read it, and I probably wouldn’t have remembered it all in my excited state.
The best part was that he had timed it the day before we would see both of our families for Easter. So we got to tell everyone in person, which was much more meaningful for both of us. Most were not surprised since we’ve been dating for over 8 years, but we still got some tears of joy from his mom who is so sweet.
We’re hoping for a wedding two summers from now so that we’ll both be completely done with our various degrees, which gives me lots of time to plan! I’m looking forward to obsessing over the details with you Bees, thanks for all the support!
Here’s the antique-inspired halo he had designed for me, I love it!!

I LOVE your ring! My Darling Husband wrote down the general idea of what he wanted to say ahead of time and had it framed as a gift for me that he gave after he proposed. I love having it… It’s on our dresser in our room! I hope you can frame those note cards somehow, I love getting to read what he said… Especially on days that we’re having a disagreement, it’s a good reminder for me 🙂

@dhaskett: Thanks! He got it from Injayan & Co in San Fran.
@Jenlon: Framing them is a great idea, I’ve already read them 5 times =). It helps me feel close to him when we have to do long distance.
@Lacelibs: Ohh yay, congrats to you too!! I’ll definitely see you around =)
