- Wedding: January 2016
I am finally engaged to my wonderful SO after almost 8 years. I had a feeling it would happen over the weekend and I was right…sort of! It happened Friday! The day started off by going into the city to have brunch. Afterwards we went off our merry way to Central Park. Central Park is one of our favorite places to be and SO runs there often.
As we were strolling in Central Park we reached the bridge. We just sorta stopped there and no one was really around actually, which was pretty great. As I was looking over the bridge he hugged me from behind and when I looked at him he had tears in his eyes. I started laughing and asked if everything was ok. He nodded and then we were facing each other and he held both of my hands in his.
He was so nervous!! He was so stiff, literally like a statue and looking right into my eyes and his voice was shaking. He told me after the proposal that he actually had a whole speech memorized but it all went a blur cause he was so emotional and nervous! He said many sweet and loving things to me that instantly made me cry and cover my eyes with both hands because I couldn’t believe it was actually happening. On a Friday! I so thought it’d be during the weekend.
“These have been the best years of my life. We’ve been through literally everything together since we were teenagers and we’ve watched each other grow. We’ve stormed the weather, good and bad. Our love can only go higher.” It was something along those lines.
I can’t really remember everything else he said but right before he asked the question he said that he didn’t want me to wait another second. Lol It’s so true!! You really can’t remember everything he said! Well for me at least! I just know I was crying so hard, bees.
It was the most beautiful moment of my life ever. I was shaking so much and crying at the same time haha and said YES. I hugged him right when he put the ring on my finger and got up from bended knee. I hugged him so tight and then he picked me up and we did sort of a spin-hug? Haha. We both cried so much! The proposal was very us. OMG I’M ENGAGED! I can’t wait to marry my man! Huge shout out to all of my fellow waiting bees. It’s been a journey over the past few months (and years!) on the Bee and I can’t thank you enough for the motivation and support! And now to start planning our wedding!
