Making a public announcement on social media was not a priority for me.
Ultimately my mom beat me to the punch. A couple weeks after our engagement she posted our photo stating we were engaged. I found it annoying but didn’t make an issue out if it.
About a week later we took a cute pic while we were out. I posted it with the description stating “Engaged. xoxo” I had told almost everyone I wanted to by then, but it made me realize I forgot to tell some of the people I would have liked to have informed more personally.
It was nice to get the overwhelming number of likes and congrats.

He proposed to me in front of a horse carriage, right before we went on a ride through the city (Quite romantic!) So we took a picture of the two of us snuggling in the carriage, and a small picture to show off the ring. Caption was “Didn’t even have to think about it!”
We agreed that we both should do a picture on social media, so he showed the exact same picture but (being the goofy nerds we are) he captioned that one “One ring to rule them all. . .”
So we satisfied the traditional people with my post, and our nerdy selves in his. 😛
