- Wedding: April 2013
Yeap, that’s right. We got engaged yesterday! Cross #124 off the list. Very exciting and I was totally surprised because we’ve been working with a few jewelers here to make a ring, and we’re going back to meet with them this morning, so I defffinitely wasn’t expecting anything for at least a month or so. Nuts!
So, yes, SO proposed exactly how I’d always dreamed, which is pretty sweet, and he was surprised by that. We’re in the midst of packing up our apartment, we’re making a long distance move (movers are coming tomorrow, yipes!!) soon but he wanted to do it in NYC where we met and started our lives together as partners. So, to take a break from all the packing, we went for a nice long walk, down the west side on the river, and stopped to sit at a bench in Battery Park, right on the water overlooking downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. We sat for a few minutes before he got down on one knee and proposed! What all came out of his mouth? Not totally sure, haha, I think I said ‘are you serious!?’ at first, and then of course ‘Yes.’ And then we spent some time calling our families, and we happened to already have plans to go out to dinner with his parents that night. We went over to our best friends’ after dinner to celebrate with some beers, and it was pretty special.
And sorry ladies, no ring porn yet! Recently I must’ve made it clear that while a ring is lovely, it doesn’t ‘make’ an engagement, so he decided to propose without! We’ve been working with several jewelers to create our ring, and we have appointments with both this morning! Hoping I won’t have to wait too long though! He put the right hand ring he gave me on the left for the time being.
Just wanted to let all the helpful and patient waiting bees know, and thank you all for all of the support and excellent advice I’ve received so far!! Forever grateful!
