- Wedding: January 2014
The man I have called my boyfriend for the past 7 years is finally my fiancé! The proposal was perfect! Heres my story:) …
Let me start by telling you that we have known each other since we were 13. we actually went to public school together and he just so happened to be my boyfriend when I was in grade 8! Yep, went to our grade 8 grad together and everything! We ended up going to different highschools so things didn’t last, BUT I did run into him again one day, and that day was now over 7 years ago! We were 19. 7 & a half years later we are FINALLY engaged. He surprised me by tricking me into thinking we were going out for a dinner mystery date (blindfolded haha) …I thought he was taking me to a new restaurant. As we get out of the car he tells me I have to keep the blindfold on until we get into the restaurant…and I realized that things weren’t really adding up once we started walking on grass! We walked a little further and he told me to remove the blindfold. I looked around and was so surprised, I couldn’t believe that we were the our old public school where we first met! He had a blanket and candles set up under the tree we used to hang out under as kids….he walked me over to the tree, surrounded by candles and got down on one knee. I was so speechless, and it was absolutely perfect that he proposed to me in the place where we hung out as kids 14 years ago 🙂 …the ring is perfect and I couldn’t be happier! I am so excited to be able to start planning the wedding!!
