- Wedding: January 2014
Oh my goodness I am grinning from ear to ear… let me explain.
Last month we ended up doing a kind of impromptu e ring shopping because I happened upon the most beautiful (in my opinion) ring. I just couldn’t hold it in, so I told my SO. He was seemed really pleased that I had been thinking of this sort of thing, and even more happy about the price. He told me to sleep on it, and maybe the next day we could go around and do a little shopping….and if I was still in love, we could purchase it.
Of course on the terms of him saying a proposal wouldn’t be right away. And I said I understood…we ended up buying the ring.
Well, ever since I have been trying to play it cool, (after a short break down crying the day after ring purchase because of my mom being kinda crazy) and not bring it up. Just going back to being a happy girlfriend. And I have been successful.
Now here is the WONDERFUL gift I got from my lovely boyfriend tonight. HE, without any nudging or prodding from me, brought up honeymoon plans. We started looking at options, and hotels, and just general fun stuff. Then, most naturally, we started talking about wedding budgets, and where money was going to come from all that sort of thing. (at this point I am completely stoked that he is talking about this sort of thing, because it was all i could do NOT to talk about it)
AND THEN…as if it couldn’t get any better. I told him I had been kinda looking around the interwebs getting inspiration (here) and I let him know that I really LOVED that he brought this stuff up, because I knew that he had intentions, and was thinking actively about our future. And I really appreciated it. And He said that he had all sorts of “stuff” swimming through his head…with a big smile on his face. (stuff has been our code word for proposal) He then offered up a time line. He said, fall-ish of this year!!!!! WOOOOO!!! We were planning on going to my family in Florida for Christmas, and we would be able to go as an engaged couple!!!
this makes me so freaking happy, I have had the biggest smile on my face all night. I am so happy, that I only have a very small (but still annoyingly there) regret that fall means NOT summer, and summer is when our trip to Paris was. Oh well…. I am just so lucky and feel so loved right now!
Sorry for the long post. But the only other person I feel comfortable telling all this to, is getting married this month, and I don’t want to take anything away from her. AHHhh…i’m going to go jump around the living room a bit! 🙂 🙂 🙂
