- Wedding: May 2013
I’ve lurked for a while, but I just got engaged last month so I thought I’d finally get an account!
So just a back story, now-FI and I have been together for a little over four years, and both have recently graduated from the same university (where we met) with the same engineering degree. I just graduated last month, but he was finished in May and has been working in the industry since then.
Before Christmas, we went on our yearly trip to Santa Fe where his grandmother has a house we stay at. I had been secretly hoping that he would propose during the trip, but certain events occurred in weeks prior that had me ABSOLUTELY convinced he would not. I mean, 100% positive it would not happen.
Well our first full day there had been absolutely wonderful. We did some sightseeing and shopping and ended up in this store where I fell in love with a particular item. Unfortunately, it was a little pricey for me, but now-FI offered to get it for me. I said no, and he tells me that he got me something for Christmas, but it doesn’t really count as a Christmas present. I suppose that should have made me a little suspicious. But it didn’t, and he got me the gift, and all was good.
Later that night, we end up at one of our favorite spots in town where a locally famous piano player/singer performs on a regular basis. He also sometimes has people in the audience come up and sing while he plays piano. Well Fiance is an extremely talented singer so he got up to sing “If Ever I Would Leave You” from Camelot for me which was super sweet.
And then we end up back at home. He built a fire, and we were snuggled up at the couch. All of the sudden he leaves the room, comes back, gets down on one knee with a little box, says some very nice things about how much he loves me and how he wants to spend the rest of his life with me, and asks me to marry him.
So that’s pretty much it! It was absolutely perfect. Our wedding is going to be May 25th, 2013 in Santa Fe so we have a ways to go! And below are ring pics. It’s a blue diamond in a platinum setting!
