- Wedding: June 2012
He finally proposed (on Sunday Dec. 18th)!
He wrote a song about our relationship and how much I mean to him and he sang it to me with our guitar at home. In the song he asked, “Will you marry me?” and then he pulled out the ring and of course I said yes! (And cried. haha)
It was a reference to the fact that he originally told me about his feelings for me through a song, almost 8 years ago now. It was perfect.
I was supposed to go out that day to do some Christmas shopping, so he was planning on practicing while I was out and then singing me the song as soon as I got home (even while I had my coat on because he said he wanted me to know that he thinks I’m beautiful even when I don’t feel at my best) – but I didn’t end up going out so he had to practice the song in his head since I was near him all day! So, he wasn’t able to memorize it and had to read the lyrics, but I absolutely loved it.
I loved that it lasted and I had time to take it in and enjoy it – and now I can read the lyrics or listen to the song (I asked him to record it) whenever I feel like smiling.
