- Wedding: June 2012
To all the Bees looking into the furute tonight and seeing wedding bells come 2012 here is a shout out to us!
On this day last year, unknowingly to me, my guy was planning our future. Last year on New Years Eve my guy was being extra patient as we walked from store to store trying to find the perfect outfit for me to wear that night for a nice intimate dinner at our first meeting and date spot, I was super excited and beginning to get a little vibe from my guy that something was up…He was being so patient…not that he has any tendency to ever be out of line, but lets face it, he never really cared if I wore gold or silver, tonight he wanted gold..hmmm..ok…I thought…Once the evening came upon us my guy had to make a quick exit saying he needed to run to the store for something, I was still intrigued, I didn’t KNOW what was about to happen but boy did I have HIGH HOPES! Immediately I sent a text to my friend saying “this may sound nuts but I might get engaged tonight…” along with that text I ran out and bought the prettiest gold shimmer nail polish I could find, immediately aware that IF I did get engaged my hands would be primed and ready for any envious stare down a complete stranger would give me, because I would stop them and make them look! Well my friend quickly cooled my jets when she observantly mentioned that last New Years Eve I felt the same way and that this was just possibly another high hope of mine. After her comment I was mad, but chalked up my feeling to “eh maybe she is right.” Besides, I felt it was wonderful for just feeling so excited about the idea of it! That feeling meant everything to me! So my guy returned home, with a smirk on his face and an attention to detail like I had never seen- he literally watched every move I made while I put on my makeup in our bedroom- He just sat quiet and looked at me as I moved, I saw him taking in his time and I felt so in love, this was going to be a beautiful night to bring in an exciting year! After all we were moving 2,000 miles away that coming June, we had so much to look forward to together. As I finished up getting ready and slipped on the “gold” assemble for the evening, I heard a familiar song being played in our living room.-my heart beats hard even now just thinking about this moment!- I walked out of our bedroom and into the living room where Eric Clapton’s “Wonderful Tonight” was playing- a favorite artist among us- My guy swept up my hand and laced his right hand on the small of my back and began dancing with me, He looked me deep in the eyes and I could just hear his heart beating through his words. He began telling me how there were “many adjectives to describe a woman…” –he has a thing with adjectives- to be honest, the rest of his words seemed to blur together because then he dropped to his knee and I was filled with joy! There he was confessing everything to me I already knew he felt, he took the leap into his own hands to take our love and combine it in marriage. He said I stood there for about 5 mins with my hands clasping my face and tears streaming, still no answer to his “will you marry me..” finally, I sputtered YES! And two FIs were born J And that nail polish I had painted on, it was immediately removed. My theory was that I didn’t want anything to distract away from my gorgeous ring!
Are you a NYE engagement story? Did you have a feeling before you got engaged?
