- Wedding: October 2017
I am so excited to share with you all that my boyfriend (now fiance!) proposed to me yesterday evening. I knew that a proposal was coming, but I didn’t know when it would happen, and I definetly did not expect it to happen on Valentine’s Day because he is so anti doing anything remotely cliche.
He took me to the very first restaurant we went to on our second date, and was being very nostalgic about how close we have gotten over the 1 1/2 years we’ve been together and how much he loves me. Other than some nice conversation, dinner was pretty normal. We went back to my house and I thought that was the end of our Valentine’s Day celebration.
Once we got to the kitchen to put away leftovers, he pulled out a piece of paper and began reading me the most heartfelt, beatifully written letter about our relationship and all of the things that we have experienced together. I can’t remember half of what he said, but I could see he was extremely nervous. Towards the end of him reading, I heard him say “We’ve done so many things together, and you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. The only thing that would make my life more complete would be being able to call you my wife.”
Then he got down on one knee and took out the most gorgeous ring. I could barely believe it was happening! It still feels surreal even now!
I always thought I wanted a big, huge proposal with tons of people there, but I absolutely love the fact that it was just the two of us. I’m engaged!!!
Here is the ring.
Thanks for allowing me to share my joy in this moment!
