- Wedding: July 2011
My boyfriend (now fiance!!) proposed on Saturday! I knew it was coming as he had previously taken me to a local jeweler to pick out a ring back in May. But it definitely came as a surprise!
He took me out to dinner and then we got home and were just casually hanging out. He then said he had a gift for Bella (my chihuahua who I treat like a human baby… come on, you know you’re guilty of that too!) since it was her birthday. Inside the box was a dog toy for Bella and a teddy bear. I was kind of confused by the bear so as I sat there holding it he presented me with a poem that he wrote which ended in “Will you marry me?” He then pulled the ring out of the bear’s shirt!
I was ecstatic! He told me that he wanted to incorporate all the things I like so that is why he wrapped the bear with Bella’s gift, hid the ring in the teddy bear with a pink shirt to incorporate my love of fashion (and the color pink!) and finally he incorporated our love for the beach into the poem (since we are beach bound this coming weekend!)
It was aboslutely perfect and I’m honored to be the future Mrs. E. I still cannot believe I get to marry my best friend and love!
Thanks for allowing me to share our story and pictures!
