- Wedding: June 2015
Oh my goodness bees!! Some days, I will admit, I get frustrated waiting. Ever since that’s what I realized that I was in a limbo stage, I’ve been struggling with my emotions (more than I like to admit) I go back and forth between wondering what the hold up is and realizing that this is a LOT of pressure for him dans understanding why it’s taking a bit of time.
For those who aren’t familiar with the back story ( I know everyone wonders with these kinds of posts) we’ve been best friends for five years, dating for more than three years and living together for almost two years. Engagement wasn’t even on my radar until last winter, I got antsy and we had a talk, he didn’t even know that I wanted to get married. It wasn’t on his radar because we were happy and why fix what isn’t broken right. So then he knew, and this Spring I got antsy again, we talked some more (at the advice of the Bees. Thanks ladies!) He promised he would marry me and that he was nervous about being the centre of attention and not actually worried about actually marrying me. He swore he would do it so I believed him and I have been trying to be so patient! I admit I have my moments but for the most part, I’m hanging in there!
Tonight laying in bed he asks out of nowhere “on a scaled of one to romantic, how romantic does it have to be” I feign innocence “does what have to be?” “The proposal. I think about it, and I just feel lik it has to be something really special and I want to know how you feel about it. I promise I won’t make you wait too long” I assured him that it doesn’t have to be romantic, it just has to be a little me and a little him and maybe leave us with an interesting story. As long as we’re both there, nothing else matters.
But he said he thinks about it! All in his own (nice!) and I don’t have to wait too long! I hope I helped take the pressure off a little so he doesn’t feel like it has to be some grand plan! I’m just all grinning and stoked right now and I had to share!!
