- Wedding: July 2014
Hi all! I’ve been a lurker for a while, but last night I was asked to become my boyfriends wife, and I’m so excited! We’ve been together almost three and a half years, lived together for two, and have a cat together. We’re planning a big bash in Calgary, Alberta next summer and I’m so excited!
He proposed Sunday evening after we got snowed in. We had plans to go out for dinner tonight, but the roads were so bad tonight that we stayed in. He’s a pastry chef, and he brought home big fluffy cream puffs on Saturday and made me promise I wouldn’t eat them. I made a big meal tonight because I felt bad we couldn’t go for dinner. After dinner, he told me to go get the cream puffs, and when I grabbed them from the fridge and opened the box they were in, he had written “Will you marry me?” on the inside of the box, and when I turned around, he was on his knees, holding my ring!
Here’s my pretty ring! The ring was his grandmother’s, who willed it to him, and then he gave to me. I was worried about receiving a family heirloom, but his parents and his aunt are totally on board with me getting it, which makes me feel a lot better. We don’t know anything about it right now, i’m going to get it appraised this week, but i’m so happy with it already. I may have to get it reset, as the setting is very scratched and hasnt been taken care of, but i’d love to keep it original. The stone shows a lot of color, it’s not flawless by any means but it’s perfect. I’m gonna try to get some better photos tomorrow with my proper camera. Sorry for how big it is, and how awful my nails are, this really was a surprise proposal!
