- Wedding: June 2014 - Cedar Lake Cellars
Take me off the list. please! I was #22 (#6 if I hadn’t missed a clean up), and I’ve been waiting for almost 2 years.
My boyfriend and I have known each other for 11 years but have only been dating for 3, if you don’t count a quick, failed attempt at dating in undergrad. We picked out a ring together in January 2011 but he has been waiting to finish his PhD.
We went to a big Halloween party in the country with many of our friends on Saturday. After some typical drinking and socializing, we all went on a hay ride, which is tradition for this party every year. The hay ride stopped and one of our friends jumped off and began distracting us all with drunken debauchery; I honestly didn’t think anythng of it or the fact that my boyfriend climbed off the wagon. Next thing I know, he asked me to come here for a second. I stood up and saw a line of carved pumpkins on the truck reading, “Will you marry me?”. After I saw it, he got down on one knee and asked. And, of course, I said yes.
The ring fit fine in the cold that night but was really hard to get off the next morning so I need to get it resized. I’ll post pictures once I can put the ring on my finger safely . Thanks for all your support over the years, bees!
