My man had been alluding to doing something “special” over the weekend for the last two days, and I was losing my mind over the possibility that maybe THIS weekend would be THE weekend.
As most of us waiting-ers have experienced, many weekends come-and-promptly-go with no proposal. The last 4 weekends have been like that for me. I tried to keep myself busy as to not lose my mind (or harass Mr. Puck with a whiny “WHEN ARE WE GONNA GET ENGAAAAAAGED?”) Don’t lie, you can all hear my annoying-girl-voice through the internet when you read that, because we all secretly think it during every even somewhat-romantic moment.
So Friday night, Mr. Puck and I went out for dinner at one of our favorite places for dinner. It’s just a shoddy little hole in the wall, but it is one of those hidden gems, like the second you open the door, you are instantly in the nicest, most amazing restaurant. Great food, amazing staff, cozy yet large… It’s just wonderful.
So obviously, I was having an internal melt-down.
By the end of the evening, I was getting a little anxious. Had this been another romantic evening that I had ruined with my expectations of engagement, and consequent disapointment over blown expectations?
Our waiter came to top our glasses up with more wine, and Mr. Puck asked him to take a photo of us. He gladly obliged and took a photo, and then another one, and then a third, and before I could realize what was happening, Mr. Puck was down on one knee with a ring box pulled out of his blazer, his eyes filled with tears.
“Will you marry me?” – they were the sweetest words I’d ever heard. The waiter got the whole thing on camera.
The rest of the evening was a whirlwind of excitement love, and intimacy. I am so happy to say that I get to spend the rest of my life with this man.
Now, for all you ring/gem lovers, here’s my terrible camera-phone pictures of my emerald cut deep green emerald in 18k yellow gold. For those of you who don’t know too much about the stone, deep green is the most desired color for emeralds. They are valued based on the darkness of the color.
