I’ve dropped off the hive for a while as I started grad school and a new job….so I’m sorry for the late notice as I’ve been trying to get all of my thoughts together.
I knew it was coming soon, he had the ring, he knew I wanted to be engaged before my birthday. (*Sidenote- all those things that you think are really important while you’re waiting? They mean nothing in the end. End Rant) He had suggested we have breakfast at a significant place to our relationship- it’s where I realized I lurved him for the long hall.
It was an amazing breakfast…. and nothing. This wasn’t as frustrating as you’d think. I knew he had the ring, so there were so many moments that I thought: maybe this will be it and it wasn’t but it wasn’t dissapointing because it was going to happen….
We had a nice day, my mom came over for some reason or another. I started making pierogies for dinner. My SO seemed dissapointed that I had started dinner as he wanted to cook it. Now SO is great for many things, and he has been known to step it up in regards to all things domestic- but he never rarely volunteers for dinner. I really thought that just didn’t feel like driving my mom home. So I drove her home while he finished up dinner. My mom is very close so I made the reount-trip in 20 minutes. I parked the car, and came in the back door and a very handsome man greeted me in a suit!
He led me to the dining room that was aglow in candlelight. It was beautiful. He was nervous. I was nervous and starving. I started to plunge in to my mouthwatering pierogies. He started his speech.
It was really heartfelt. I don’t remember exactly what was said but it was very touching. He gave me the ring. I said “of course!”
I never ate my pierogies.
We spent the rest of the night in excited bliss. We kept the news to ourselves for a bit to take in the moment. We’re getting married!
