- Wedding: November 2013
I’m engaged!!!!! <—- Feels so weird to say/write that still!
It happened on Saturday night, while we were enjoying our first night together in our new apartment. With no furniture to our name, we had a picnic in front of the fireplace, with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne, and Chinese food from our favourite restaurant 🙂
After an hour of somewhat awkward conversation (haha, he was so nervous!), he finally popped the question and I said, “YES!” of course 🙂 As I stopped and looked back at what we had done that day, I realized I was duped into believing everything he had set up was because of our new apartment, when really it was because he was planning the proposal (you know the moment in Fight Club when Ed Norton realizes he’s Tyler Durden? It was kinda like that). It was so funny because at one point I gave him a hug and he was sweating SO MUCH! I asked him if he felt OK, and he tried to cover it up by saying it was just from putting the curtains up 🙂 Little did I know he was dying inside, deperately trying to find a segue into a proposal, lol.
We went out for a drink afterwards and didn’t tell anyone til the next day. It was fun to have such an amazing secret!
Here is a photo of our picnic, which Fiance took afterwards to commemorate it (you can see my little ring box by the candles):
Here’s my ring in the light of day, the following morning:
And again from another angle:
I don’t know much about the ring except that it was purchased at Birks, it is made of white gold with platinum prongs, and there’s a round-cut centre diamond with a pear diamond on either side. I love it SO much! The band is so thin and delicate. To me, it is perfectly proportioned!
I’M SO HAPPY!!! YAAAAAY!!!!!
