- Wedding: October 2015
I’m excited to say I’m engaged! My fiancé and I have been dating 7.5 years. The week leading up to the proposal, I knew something was up. He had planned to come visit me on the weekend and he was really wanted to know if I made any plans for us. When I questioned as to why, he was really vague stating he had something fun planned. Now I was intrigued, in our whole relationship he had never organized a whole event for me. He usually gets me to help with at least part of the planning. Plus he knows I have a hard time when I know there’s a surprise. So like any good girlfriend I interrogated him all week. If in the past he had any surprise I would be able to get it out of him in a day but not this time. By the time he arrived to my house, I had some details but not enough to know what was planned. I knew I needed to pack a bag for the night, my mom was going to watch my dog and I needed to dress nicely but comfortably.
Saturday finally came and I was felt like a kid on Christmas morning. I was up at 6:30 am even though we had set the alarm for 9:00am At around 830 am my fiancé gets up and says we need to get going. I was really confused because he said I would have time in the morning to pack and I still haven’t started yet. I told him I wasn’t packed, he said not to worry. Then I told him if it was to go out for breakfast I had already eaten and he again said not to worry. After a little more convincing, I went up stairs and got ready.
In the car he wanted to know if I would be mad that he tricked me into coming so he wouldn’t be alone when he went to get himself Tim Horton’s. I laughed but soon realized after he passed the Tim’s that he had something else in mind. He brought me down to the lake and told me to get out. We walked onto a huge chuck of ice, where the beach was suppose to be and stared out onto the lake. It was amazingly calm and beautiful. The snow was falling; it so quiet there wasn’t anyone around. He told me to close my eyes and when I opened them he was holding the ring. It was perfect. We took in the beauty and then we were off. He had planned the rest of the day for me. He took me to a vegan restaurant I had never been too (I’m a vegan as a side note). He encouraged me to choose both of our meal, which we shared. It was all so yummy. Then lastly he took me to a concert. A band we both enjoyed.
The best part was he had planned it all on his own and every part of it showed how much he knew me. It was so nice not to have to make any decisions, just take in everything as it came. I’m a bit of a control freak so letting go was hard but so worth it!!
