After 3 years of being together, he finally proposed!! We have been living together for the past year, so the fact that he has been looking at rings wasn’t exactly a secret. Last night, he told me he would be ordering my diamond “sometime this week” and suggested I choose a setting and diamond I like from Blue Nile (he insisted on ordering from them). I spent an hour narrowing down the diamonds from 54 to 4.
Today, he got off of work about an hour early. He suggested we go fishing, which wasn’t anything out of the ordinary. We live in Charleston, SC and go fishing often. We got out to Sunrise Park, which is a park we go to often that has amazing views of the Charleston harbor. When we got out there he said to me “We aren’t really out here to fish.” He then got down on one knee and proposed! I was so surprised! Of course I said “Yes!” and nearly tackled him with a hug!
I found out he had actually purchased the ring last week, and received the ring last Friday! He’s been waiting until the best day to propose and had decided on today after speaking with my parents as well as his. Wish me luck on the wedding planning!

Congrats! Did the ring match the one you picked out? That’s a risky game he played!

@islandlily84- He went with the Pave Diamond Engagement ring in Platinum from Blue Nile. It looked a little bulky on their website, but in real life, it is smaller than it seemed online.
@AlwaysSunny- We had been talking about getting engaged so I suggested certain settings and created a secret board on pinterest with rings I liked, so that if/when he decided to buy a ring, he would have an idea of what I liked.

@MissZeppelin- here’s my ring! I’m sorry it’s such a large photo. This is my first time uploading a photo, and I’m not sure how to resize it.
