- Wedding: October 2015
Christmastime is my absolute favorite time of the year. But my fiancé and I weren’t able to be together on Christmas Day, so we decided to make New years morning our own little Christmas morning. We wake up, go downstairs in our new cozy pjs (my Christmas tradition), turn on the Christmas music, and open our gifts under the tree. Then we move on to our stockings which we’re hanging on the staircase. At the bottom of mine is a small Christmas box. Nothing fancy or suspicious. I open it and there’s a little Santa…I take it out and I’m like “oo how cute!” I didn’t notice that there was a blue ring box underneath it. When I look back at the Christmas box I freeze….I take it out and my hands were shaking. He had been behind me on the stairs waiting on one knee…then I open the box and it was my ring!! I was speechless…just totally shocked. I had been expecting to get engaged within the next couple months but had no clue it would be that day. All I could think was..is this happening?? He started telling me how much he loved me and asked if I would marry him. The only thing my brain would let me say was “I love you!” about a million times, then it finally occurred to me to say “of course yes!!!”. My hands were shaking so much he had to hold them still to get the ring on!
Then we had mimosas, called our families, and went out to brunch 🙂
It was the perfect day…I had just been saying the day before how it was exactly 3 years ago on New Years that he first told me he loved me. And we get to start 2014 engaged! Perfect start to the new year.
I can’t stop looking at my ring and taking pictures of it…is that normal?? HahA
Now time to start wedding planning!!!
Anyone have any good tips for wedding books or magazine?? Hehe
