So yesterday I asked SO to limit his personal purchases since Christmas is right around the corner and he’s hard to shop for due to the fact that if he wants something, he just buys it…. his response was ‘I’m not buying anything, I have to pinch my pennies anyway….’
Instantly my mind took off in every direction….Penny pinching to buy a ring? –was my immediate thought. I didnt pry any explainations from him since I’ve recently decided to drop the topic due to my occational drunken engagement ‘banter’ (banter is putting it lightly!)
What are your thoughts bees? We have no other big purchases or home repairs in the works….could my 1 year waiting timeline end sooner than I thought?! Or will he just be scraping pennies for a year? Or am I completely crazy and he’s really just trying to save for the holidays? AAAHHH why do I make myself so crazy?!

just relax. It may be a possibility but I wouldn’t get your hopes up because if he doesn’t you wll be upset and he won’t even know why. Stop thinking about it and let it be a surprise 🙂

It can be tough not to read in between the lines, especially because Western culture puts so much emphasis on the upcoming holiday season!
In all honesty, without being him, it’s impossible to know what he means.
But whether it happens in the next couple of months or so, it’s still a great time of the year to be in love! 🙂
