I’m just super excited and want to gush to people that don’t know me so I can spill all the details and not give a damn who thinks what 🙂
In September, SO was dealing with really bad depression and we were, for lack of a better term, on a break for a little while. It was hard and awful and I cried all the time. But that only lasted about a month. Then things were better than ever.
Just a few days ago we had our two year anniversary. Now, when I was in college on the other side of the country, SO came to visit me and gave me a promise ring (his grandmother’s wedding ring) but I was never allowed to wear it around his family because it would start a whole bunch of shit because there was tension about him being trusted with it in the first place, let alone him giving it to some girl (we were only dating for three months at the time and regardless, it took his family a while to warm up to me as being important). So for our anniversary, I got a promise ring (that he picked out all on his own!). Which will, in all likelyhood be my engagement ring because I’m always going to wear it and I’m always going to wear the other one and I only have two fingers those two rings fit on. And it’s beautiful. And we’re waiting to get engaged until he graduates- Fall 2013. He said it’ll probably be like January or February. So I may get a proposal for my 22nd birthday! (I’m about to turn 21 next month)
And while we were away for the weekend for our anniversary, we ended up driving around and looking at all the big, fancy houses. And while we were doing that, he was telling me about how this guy he works with was giving him crap about not wanting kids. And I mentioned that there was a point he said he’d have kids with me. So we started talking about our concerns about why we both say we don’t want kids and, while we still don’t know, we’re kinda on the same page! Or at least the same chapter I told him straight though that if we have kids 1- we’d have two (he agreed, two max and I insist that we don’t have only one. Becuase I grew up an only child and it sucked) and 2- I want to be done by the time I’m 25 (I want to be a younger parent, so I can still have energy to manage children but I’m not sure where he stands on that. He wants to be abe to have freedom he hasn’t been able to have yet).
But yeah! Very exciting. Like, if anyone remembers, I posted something a few months ago about wanting to talk to him about kids but I was nervous. We talked about it. It wasn’t awkward, it was natural even! We know when we’re getting engaged. I have a ring I can wear in public. It’s great 😀 <3
