- Wedding: June 2011
I am somewhat a newbee here. Here is my engagement story. My Fiance and I had been together almost 3 years (was 3 yrs in November). This past summer some of his friends and mine teased him about putting a ring on my finger. Myself once in a while would tease him also about putting a ring on my finger.
Couple of birthdays ago, Fiance bought me a pair of white gold diamond studded earrings and need to have them cleaned every six months. A week before my birthday Fiance and I went to have my earrings cleaned and also looked at engagement rings! I picked out one I adored. It was one where you could pick out the middle diamond.
So that week was on pins and needles, will he or won’t he propose on my birthday? My birthday is on 10/10. For that day, he made me brunch then we went to a place on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border to go on a riverboat cruise to look at the fall colors. The town we went to also the population was get this 1010 Was a beautiful day.
The boat cruise was about an hour and half long. Here I am thinking he is going to propose on the cruise, nope! Afterwards we went to a State Park not to far away, for me to take more fall pictures. So after searching and searching for a spot with privacy (hard feat to do when a child of 10 who doesn’t belong to us is following us around).
So here we stand facing each other under a canopy of trees with the river near us. I knew in my heart this was it. After a long while he pulls a box out of his pocket and gets down on one knee and asks me to be his forever! Of course I said yes!!! After the crying…
So my birthday was a very special one and our day is set for June 4, 2011.
