- Wedding: October 2017
I’m so excited to say that I’m engaged! It happened earlier this afternoon, during the last part of our anniversary long weekend trip. We were out sailing on a schooner (it was a perfect day for it) and chatting with the other passengers and crew. We had turned around to head back into the harbor when Fiance (!) and I found ourselves alone at the stern. We were talking about all of the cool photos we were going to get from the sailing, and then he grabbed my hand and commented that he’d like to keep taking pictures of and with me for a long time (he’s a photographer). He said more, but I think I blacked out when I saw him reach into his pocket and realized what was happening! It was so romantic and personal (neither of us is the center of attention type) so it was nice that even on a boat with 15 other poeple, we still had an intimate moment to ourselves. After docking, we were the last to disembark and we shared our news with the captain and crew. They immediately congradulated us and procured mini bottles of champagne from their bar, which I thought was very sweet! We then spent the 2 hour drive home calling all of our friends and family. So so excited that this is real, and I can’t wait to marry my love!!
And now, the ring porn: she’s a 2.5 carat equivalent all-natural pink sapphire with a pave rose gold band and halo. SO sparkly and changes color a bit depending on the lighting. I can’t stop staring at my hand!
