Last night, we got all dressed up to attend his friend’s wedding. This is the 3rd wedding we’ve attended together and it is the first one that we’ve attended since he had a conversation with my mom about his “intentions.” He told her that he wants to propose to me in 2011. It was originally going to be on our 2 year anniversary in July 2011, but I told him that he has to choose another date so that I will still be surprised.
Anyway, my boyfriend was wearing a pinkie ring that he only wears when he gets dressed up. During the reception, we were sitting alone at our table and he reached over, took my hand, and playfully started to slip his gold pinkie ring onto my left ring finger. I started giggling as he did this and he said, “Oh wait! Diamonds only for that finger!” and he slipped his pinkie ring onto my right ring finger instead.
It was really cute and after the wedding, he was really chatty about what our wedding might be like. We talked about locations, how to integrate family traditions (I am african american and he is italian american), food, and how much fun we want to have planning it all together.
I know that I still have the majority of next year for waiting, but I’m feeling happy that I’m not alone in being excited about it. It was really reassuring to hear him share that he thinks about this wedding stuff sometimes, too! 🙂
