- Wedding: October 2012
Hi ladies! I’m so happy to begin being an active member of the Bee. I just got engaged about a week and a half ago and am finally getting around to posting! First I’ll tell you the short version of the proposal story and then show you the bling.
Basically, Fiance picked me up from work per usual on Thursday nights and we went along with our normal Thursday night activities. Afterwards, he suggested we go by our house that is being renovated to check on the progress which I was okay with because it is something we do every few days. When we got there he suggested we go in the backyard and look into the basement to see if there was any water damage from the recent storm which again was normal to me because we had tried a few nights before but the fence was stuck and we couldn’t get back there. As we were walking through the fence into the back yard I noticed some sort of light. Then we got into the yard where he had set up a firepit (a friend had set up the fire a few minutes before) with a vase of flowers and a note. I picked up the note and opened it (upside down because I was so nervous/excited) and it basically said “Will you marry me?” When I turned around he was on one knee and he had to ask again because I was so surprised! I said yes (duh!) and then flashes started coming from the shed in the back of the yard where a friend of his was waiting to take pictures. It was very memorable and now we have pictures of the moment and great memories of the house we haven’t even moved into yet! It was beyond perfect.
Anyway, guess that wasn’t as short as I thought!! Here’s the ring (beware I only have a crappy cell phone picture)!
