- Wedding: October 2012
Our family Christmas tradition is to open gifts at our house then head over to my Grandparents for more gifts and presents. This Christmas was not like any other because to my shock and surprise, I got engaged.
I was with my family opening gifts when my FI and his Mom come over so we can all go to breakfast together….except he has on a suit. I ask him why he is so dressed up and he said I wanted to look nice for Christmas. Meanwhile I am in a scarf and pajamas and all im thinking is dam, im gonna have to get dressd because my Grandparents are gonna wonder why I am so casual and he is in a suit. I was going to head upstairs to change when he said, lets open gifts first….Ok fine, no problem.
Our anniversary was December 5th and he ordered me a gift but it was not ready in time so he wanted to give me that first, Which was a locket from Things Remembered. (Love it). He then says, I have another gift but I dont have a box for it… All im thinking is you cant get a box now everything is closed but I keep waiting to see what he does and he says the gift is him. He pulls out the ring box and kneels and ask me to be his wife…..Tears flow and after a long pause that must have been forever for him, I finally shake my head yes.
