So after 6.5 years he proposed! We’d picked out the ring, and I knew it was going to happen, but I am sooo excited!
So over the last month he has been planning little dates for us so I wouldn’t know when he was going to do it. We went to an art gallery one time, had a nice dinner in and watched the walking dead, he took me to lunch where we first met, cooked a dinner together, and took a walk around our favorite mall with a nice lunch after.
Last night he had made us a reservation for dinner, and came over a little before we had to leave, after I got off work. He told me he needed to make sure the ring fit properly for when he actually proposed, so he made me sit on the couch and close my eyes while he got it out of the hiding spot, and made me keep them closed while he tried it on. Then he pulled it off and told me to keep them closed while he put it away. When he said I could open them again, he was next to me on the couch with the ring box open! Asked me if I would marry him, I asked him if this was for real, and he said yes, so I did too! We hugged and I cried a little on the couch for happiness. Then we had an awesome date. I’m so excited!
So we picked the ring out together, but I hadn’t actually seen it since I picked a more unique stone. It is a lab emerald, 1/3 ct size, with little diamonds on the band and I absolutely love it! Picture doesn’t do it justice, but it sparkles like crazy!
