- Wedding: February 2013
A bit of back story – we decided in august of last year that we wanted to get engaged and we began looking for ‘the ring’ in september. I finally found the one and we ordered it.
SO just got back from 8 days away hunting, while he was away the ring arrived and he said I was allowed to try it on once (only to make sure it fit) and then I had to put it away. I put it away and haven’t looked at it since. When he got home he hid it from me somewhere and I’ve been really good and haven’t even tried to look for it.
Anywho, yesterday we went to visit my parents for mother’s day, we went to a beautiful old church that had a vicarage attatched that was built in the 1880’s and had been turned into a B&B. We had a lovely afternoon tea there with my parents, my sister and our two kids. Then we toured the building, it was stunning. The views were breathtaking, the trees were all beautiful shades of yellow and orange and the mountains were lightly capped with snow. I kept wondering if he was going to propose while we were there. He didn’t but he was acting kind of nervous and funny.
We went back to my parent’s house and SO offered to help my Stepfather move a fence for the cows – I thought nothing of this because he often helps out around the farm when we go to visit. (But it turns out he was asking his permission to marry me!) Then he didn’t want to come with us when Stepdad and I took my daughter to go to feed the horses, he said he wanted to help mum look after our baby, which I thought was kind of odd but I didn’t look too far into it – he told me later he was asking Mum’s permission too.
I’m sorry about this crazy long post, I’m just so excited and can’t share with anyone IRL because SO wants it to be a surprise.
ETA – It will definitely be before the end of the month. In january we decided on a date (Feb 2013). So we need to get engaged sooner rather than later so we can start getting organized.
