- Wedding: August 2014
I got engaged yesterday to my SO of almost 4.5 years. I knew it was coming because we’d planned the day together, but he still surprised me with a sweet little speech, getting down one knee, and playing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole in the background while he told me all the things he loved about me and us as a couple.
We spent the whole day downtown afterwards and took a long walk (followed by chocolate lava cake) to finish off the evening. It was more than I could’ve ever asked for. We’d been talking about it for a year and it finally came. I can’t stop looking at my ring today – hehe.
Today before my sister’s dress fitting (she’s also getting married – eeee!!) I am going to “propose” to her with a cookie cutter diamond-ring (she’s a baker) and ask her to be my maid of honour. Tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas where I will “propose” to my best friend in front of the Bellagio water show to ask her to be my bridesmaid. I cannot WAIT!
