This past weekend my SO Fiance (Eek!) and I went on a bus wine tour. When we arrived at the last of the four locations, my Fiance asked me to go for a walk with him through the vineyard between all the rows of grape vines. We walked for a bit and he suddenly just stopped and said ” I know we’ve had a tough time lately and I know there will be more obstacles to come…” then he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring. I actually don’t quite remember what all he said after that point other than “will you marry me?” because I was totally freaking out!!!
I kept saying “Oh my God!” with my hands over my mouth before finally realizing still needed to give him an answer!!! I replied “Yes Yes! Of course Yes!” I think I may have asked something to effect of “Is this really happening?” which my Fiance seemed to find quite amusing. I just could not believe it was really happening. It took a few minutes to sink in fully, at which point I start crying (a bit of a delayed reaction).
I was so overwhelmed with emotions; I didn’t even stop to look at the ring… We had decided on the ring (or so I thought) but after he went into the store he chose to actually go with a larger center stone. He said that he just decided he “was only going to get engaged once.”
After we got back on the bus I took this pic on my cellphone and texted our family and friends the news. Sorry for the HUGE pic!
Someone asked for the specifications when I posted a brief update on waiting boards: It is a bridal set (I don’t have a pic of the matching band yet). The engagement ring has a round center stone that is a little over 1ct and the e-ring setting is another 3/4ct (about 2 TCW including the wedding band). Not really sure about the clarity and color.
I still can hardly believe it! I am just so happy!
