- Wedding: November 2013
Last week my wonderful fiance proposed to me!
We were living in Japan (he moved back to the US on Monday, I’m still here), and we had taken a vacation to Singapore and Malaysia as a final vacation before he moved home. We had really enjoyed Singapore, and moved on to Tioman, Malaysia.
It was beautiful, and we were having a fantastic time. We were walking along the beach, and he pointed to a small, isolated beach, separated by a river. We waded through the river and enjoyed exploring our own little “private” beach. As we went to leave, he tapped me on the shoulder, turned me around and asked me to marry him! I managed to choke out a very excited yes, and spent the next few hours grinning.
Unfortunately, we had a few problems with the postal service (we purchased the ring from the US), and so it arrived late. This meant I had something to look forward to when I got back to Japan. I love my ring, especially now that he is gone. I can look at it sparkle (it really sparkles – I love it) and have a tangible connection to him.
It was a beautiful proposal (perfect), and I am so happy and excited to be spedning my life with my best friend!
