- Wedding: September 2015
I wasn’t 100% sure which forum to put this in and just decided on emotional because I’m actually pretty emotional about the whole thing. So in January my mother moved to Australia and she’s coming for a visit in less than a week. I got engaged on Halloween and I knew it was happening, so I of course talked to my mom about it all and so she knew it was happening soon. I had decided to kind of keep it a secret from her and not let her know that it finally happened because I really wanted to tell her in person. Fyi, I’m like extremely close with my mom because she practically raised me by herself after my parents got divorced and it’s been really hard on me to be only 21 and not having my mom around and especially not being able to just immediately run or drive over to her house to tell her this special and exciting news. I really want to tell her in a really special way, not just hold out my hand and say yay I’m engaged. She watched Ryan(fi) and I grow as a couple since we were 15 and 16. So I know how happy she’s going to be for us even if I just say hey btw he put a ring on it. But I would really appreciate some unique and creative ideas to tell and surprise her that were finally engaged! Thanks!
