- Wedding: August 2013
I’m so happy to be engaged to the love of my life! He propoed on our weekend trip to Quebec City and it was lovely.
I kind of knew it was coming, but I didn’t know for sure if he would propose on our trip. Well, when he was in the shower before dinner on our first night there, I went snooping for a ring box. I promised myself I wouldn’t look inside, I just wanted to know if it would happen. Well, I didn’t find anything so I told myself to just relax and put it out of my mind and enjoy our trip.
After dinner, we took a walk around Old Quebec City, and it had just rained so everything was shiny and sparkly. He asked me to take a picture from the top of the old fortress wall, looking out over the old city, and when I turned back around he was on one knee! Of course it took me a few seconds to process what was happening and then I started to cry. I think I nodded yes but it took me a couple of minutes of hugging and kissing to be able to say the words “Yes yes yes!”
Anyway, we spent the rest of the weekend keeping the engagement our little secret before we told our friends and families when we got back home. It was a great weekend 🙂
Oh, and the ring box was rolled up in one of his socks!
Here’s a pic I took of the ring when we got back to the hotel:
