It happened last nighI, June 20th. A little background: We’ve been together for 18 months, but we’ve known each other since high school! I’m 33, he’s 34. Last night I walked into his house like usual, and was greeted by his giant German Shepherd. I looked up, into the living room and saw that the whole entryway and room were strung with lights. There were white Christmas lights everywhere, all over the ceiling, hanging down the walls and windows, and across the fireplace. The furniture had been moved out of the living room and there were colored paper lanterns lit all over the floor. He’d also woven silver ribbons through the lights on the ceiling that were hanging down. It was GORGEOUS. I was taken completely off guard. I knew a proposal was coming, but I didn’t know he had a ring or anything. I certainly wasn’t expecting it yesterday, on a random night. I walked a little farther into the living room and he was standing to the side, all dressed up. I was so shocked all I could say was “hi”. Haha. He said hi, lead me to the center of the room, then told me he had something important to ask me. He got down on one knee, said that he loves me and is never going anywhere, and asked me to be his wife. I said yes! The whole thing is almost a blur. He said I looked completely surprised, which I was! Oh, and he gave me the prettiest ring I’ve ever seen. He picked it out on his own, but I know that it’s a diamond, 2.5 ct oval center stone halo set in white gold. Not sure on the total carat weight. I have a size 7.5 finger. I am so excited I can barely function today. The last 18 hours have been a blur and i could hardly sleep last night! The photo of the ring was taken in the car (of course, lol) today. I am so happy!!!
