- Wedding: August 2015
He proposed October 30th. Better late than never to post, right? 😉
After five and a half years of being together, he asked me the question!
It was the sweetest thing, my only “rule” was it had to be private and somewhere with a beatiful view. We live in Central Oregon, lots of beautiful scenery and places to see. One of our favorite places is Smith Rock State Park. We pull into the parking lot, leash up our doggies, two black lab-border collie mixes, and I notice he was taking a little longer to leash up than I (but thought nothing of it, really) and take a little walk to a beautiful look out.
He got down on one knee, told me how much he loved me and that he can’t wait for us to be together forever, all those beautiful things you always dream of! He takes the box out of his pocket, and says “Now don’t be surprised by what’s in here.” That makes me a little confused/worried, and when he opens it there is a dog treat inside. He then says “I think Kojack (our male dog) has something for you, give him this!” When I bent down, the ring was on his collar! (So THAT’S what took so long in the car, AH-HA!) He asked “Will you marry me?” and I said YES! And he put a ring on it, FINALLY! haha!
I love the way he incorporated our pups into it, solidifying that we are a family, through thick and thin! I love him more than anything and can’t wait to be his mrs. 🙂
Here’s the ring porn and specs: 1 1/4 carat tw, center stone is 5/8 I think? Size 7.5
Way more than I could have dreamed of 🙂
