So… Just got back today from camping. J and I had such a good time! And although there was no proposal (that’s fine, because I wasn’t expecting anything anyway), there was mention of a ring!
We were sitting on the beach watching a MASSIVE storm come in over the lake. It was scary! I told J that I wish I had a really good camera to take photo’s of the lightning and the sun setting, and that we should save up our money and get a good camera. That way, I could take some photo’s and maybe even sell some (I love taking photo’s and playing around with different effects!). Anyhoo, that’s when J said: “I’m saving my money for something else.” I asked what he was saving for (even though I knew darn well what he meant). He just looked at me and smiled, and said: “You know exactly what I’m saving for. And it costs twice as much as a really good camera.” So I said to him (in a playful way): “You know those vending machines that dispense toys in those little bubble thingy’s? I’m content with something like that.” He replied with: “YOU’RE content with that, but I’m not.” I told him that I didn’t want him to spend a lot of money on me.
The conversation just kinda ended there because the rain started falling really hard and we had to get under some tarps. But I’m REALLY happy that he even brought up the subject of a ring on his own, completely out of nowhere (I mean, we were talking about camera’s, for goodness sake… Then he mentions a ring?!?).
We haven’t even talked about the subject since April. Progress? I’d like to think so 🙂

@Everdeen: I’m the opposite… Storms really freak me out, lol. But they’re beautiful to watch!
This was the first time J actually mentioned a ring on his own, and we weren’t even on the subject of marriage, engagement, etc. As far as I know, the jeep hasn’t been sold yet. I say ‘as far as I know’ because I don’t think J would tell me if it sold, and I can’t see our apartment parking lot from where our unit is. So I’d have no clue if someone came to pick it up unless I went down there everyday to check. But I’m not that obsessive about it. Yet. We’ve been getting a lot of people inquiring about it, but most of them are all spam emails 🙁
