I’m still in shock
HE PROPOSED!! I cant believe it! I’m engaged!
Now the story: We have a duck farm (bird sanctuary is the actually name of it) 10 KM out of the little town we live in that means a lot to the both of us.. It’s a huge piece of land that has many trails that you can go walking on and of course, feed the thousands of ducks and other birds! It’s a really calming place for the both of us and we’ve had quite a few picnic dates there before. Anyway, a few days ago he told me that he checked the weather and it’s supposed to be sunny and said he would really like to bike to the duck farm early in the morning. My FI (eee!) is a really great partner but it’s not often that he thinks of things that he and I can do out of the blue and be really adamant about doing them! So in all honesty, part of me was hoping that this could be it!
Anyway, we got up early and biked over. It’s a beautiful day here today and while we were walking he asked if we could climb to the top of the lookout tower. As soon as we got up there, he told me hes been thinking about our life together a lot lately and he gave me a little type written note he wrote of reasons why he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!! He was crying so much and then I started crying and the midst of all of this, I forgot to say yes!!! Lol. Anyway, we are both still crying. Couldnt be happier.
The ring is so perfect. He did it all on his own! Rose gold outline with two topaz stones for my birthday, plus a beautiful diamond. Custom made from an etsy shop. Its so me and this whole day has been perfect.
And for all you bees in the SIU pact, my FI said he’s noticed that I havent been discussing marriage these past few months and that he really appreciates that I gave him the time and space he needed to propose. so keep strong because its so worth it!!
