After lurking these boards for a couple of months. I’ve decided to make a post as I’ve just had a talk with my SO over the weekend about timelines instead of this Summer like I initally planned (thanks to all the advice I’ve read on here!) I’m so glad I did. Turns out his timeline was 6 months sooner than what I was thinking. He admitted he found out my ring size last month and was going to message my BFF for ring suggestions. I have since emailed my top 3 choices from my Pinterest board And now the waiting officially begins!
I have to say in the past I would NEVER have done this. I would have wanted a magical proposal and be surprised for the whole thing. Which looking back on, is very unrealistic. These boards made me realize the communication and having discussions about marriage/future is more important. So thank you to everyone. You’ve helped me immensely without even knowing!

Update: so even though I know it’s coming. My friend spilled the beans to me that a proposal is coming in the next 2 weeks! As my SO has been talking to her to get help to make sure the ring I want is the one I get. He ordered the ring last month and was going to propose on our 3 year anniversary but it didn’t arrive in time. So now he is planning on doing so in early September. 3 months sooner than I was expecting.
I’m so excited and have no idea what he’s planning. Eep! Getting so close 😀
