Well Bees, 11.10.12 is officially the happiest day of my life! My loving, sweet, romantic boyfriend proposed to me! And of course, I said yes!
it started with a walk in our favorite park, where we often take when it’s a nice day out. Yesterday, he suggested we get outside, since it was sunny and 65 here. We got about 30 minutes into the walk, through gorgeous tree-lined paths, and came across a stream. He’s a big kid at heart, and always wants to explore, so when he said “those are the kind of rocks that have fossils in them!” I suggested we climb down and take a look. We cracked open some rocks, but didn’t find anything. We were standing on this little island in the middle of a stream, in the middle of these gorgeous woods, all alone. He pulled me close, and started saying how he’s never been happier, and that he wants to spend the rest of his life with me. I as shaking so bad at this point, I thought I was going to fall over. He got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him.
i don’t think I even let him finish before I started saying a combination of “yes!” and “are you serious?!” He stood up and hugged me, then pulled the ring box out of his pocket. Still wrapped! He told me he kept it that was in case I found it, I wouldn’t be able to peek. I got the ribbon off but was still shaking and laughing and smiling so much I couldn’t get the paper off!! He had to finish it, and popped the box open. I just about died right then and there, because this was sitting in it:
it’s just shy of 2 carats, F, vs1 with ideal % dimensions. As you can see, I’m getting creative with pictures already. I’m beyond happy and still in a little bit of disbelief!
