- Wedding: October 2013
This weekend my so called me on his way home from work and said that he made reservations at this restaurant in walking distance from our place. He said since the reservations were soon, he wondered if I could met him at our old meeting place and we can walk over together. When we first met, he lived a block away from me and we would always met between our places at a bench. We were best friends before we started dating and we used to met there almost everyday.
Now that we live together there had been no need to met at this bench for a long time. So needless to say I was a little suspicious. I was confused why he would make such early dinner reservations then have me met him at a place we havent met in a long time.
So when I got to our old meeting spot my SO was sitting there on bench very still watching me walk up. As soon as I got there, he asked me to marry him! Of course I said yes!!!
I couldnt be more happy with the way he proposed. I know it was coming before Christmas so I was afraid he wouldnt be able to surprise me. But he did! I thought he may be proposing at the restaurant he made reservations at. I never expected him to propose on the bench that used to be our spot all that time ago when we were best friends.
I am so happy I am going to get to marry my best friend!
Thank you so much everyone for all the advice on staying patient while waiting. It was hard, but worth it! Good luck to all your waiting bees! As I said the waiting is agonizing but very worth it!!
I will post a pic of my ring as soon as I get a decent pic of it. My camera on my phone is horrable. Good luck again everyone and thank you!
