- Wedding: April 2012
Oh my! I have been waiting to be able to post here for some time now, and I couldn’t be happier that my first bee post is to say WE’RE ENGAGED!!!!
It was so perfect-just the two us at home on “date night” (after getting razzed by my co-workers all week that I was missing an after work get together and that date night better be worth it, well I’d have to say it was!) We had talked and both really wanted to be engaged by Christmas, but I really didn’t think it was going to happen-I just didn’t see how she’d have the money by then at all. To be honest, probably two hours before she asked, I even started to cry thinking there was no way and she was so cute and understanding (later she said it was all she could do to not laugh out loud while she was thinking in her head, “little does she know”) After an incredible dinner, I was headed to go sit on the couch and she asked if we could stay at the table for a bit longer (good thing I said yes since she had stashed the ring near there) and then she started in on how much she loved me and that we’ve known for a long time that we were meant to be and how she can’t wait to spend the rest of her life with me and then SHE ASKED!!!!!!! ahhhh, tears were flowing and i couldn’t stop asking if it was a dream-she finally had to ask if I wanted to see the ring-and I said “i’ve never cared less about the ring than I do right now” (honestly I can’t even believe those words came out of my mouth!!! hahaha, anyways-it is PERFECT!!!
Awhile back we went to a jeweler that my mom uses and looked at rings and decided that we wanted complimentary ones, and then we decided that we would each go back and order the other’s separately. (funny thing is little does she know I have hers hidden in a shoe box and CAN’T WAIT to go away after Christmas and give it to her!!!!!!!!)
We are so lucky to have such incredible families that are both more than thrilled for us, and I definitely don’t take that for granted-it could so easily be different.
And now, I am so happy and lucky to be able to share planning with all of you! Reading the posts for the past couple of months has been amazing and showed me what a great community this is. I can’t wait to be a part of it!
YAYYYYYYYYYYY and happy holidays!
