Hi Bees!! I’m engaged!!!! And so happy
My Fiance Mr J (Still getting used to that) proposed on April Folls day which just so happened to be our third year anniversary.
Mr J has been talking about marriage and engagement from very early on in our relationship but had always said that he wanted to wait until he could buy me the perfect ring… so I had not been expecting a proposal anytime soon… and I definitely thought I would know if he was up to something… he’s bad at keeping secrets.
We met while we were both in the Navy, he was a sailor on my ship and I was an officer…. so it was a big No-no for us to be dating. We kept it a secret for about a year until we both discharged. As our emails were often screened we would pass hand written love notes to each other in the hall ways (Oh how highschool we were!!! But it was all part of the excitement). I now have a big stack of about 200 letters that we wrote to one another.
Any way!!! I’ll cut to the chase, as so far I have just babbled!
For our last two anniversaries I have created a photo book documenting the year just gone, I get them professionally made and printed. This year Mr J wanted to be in charge of the photo book which I thought was awesome as he is never really into that stuff. On the day of our anniversary he had just made me breakfast in bed and brought the book in for me to look at. I flicked through…. got to the last page and this is what I find….
I seriously lost it… not crying… I was giggling like a litte school girl. He pulled out the ring, and… it was perfect!!! I am so in love with it…. *Swoon!*
It’s big but not too big and simple just like I have always dreamed!
Fiance and I went out that night to celebrate… had a dinner planned at a beautiful restaurant near the casino… decided to play a little blackjack before dinner as abit of a laugh… we won $500!!! So we splurged on dinner, had some champagne… it was just the best day of my life, so filled with love, joy and excitement. Can’t wait for the rest of our lives together!!!
P.S. This is my first post, sorry if the pictures are huge
