    • Wedding: September 2017

    Hi ladies! I haven’t really been active on the boards, but I wanted to share that my sweetie proposed a couple of weeks ago while we were on vacation! You can stroke #20 off the list. It was very special and well worth the wait πŸ™‚ Here’s the ring: VVS2, I colour, .56 carat Canadian diamond. I’m in love.

    HI there. Please add me to the waiting list. This will be my second time around. I’m a veteran to wedding boards, but new here (migrating from theknot). Excited to get to know you all!

    Just a bit about myself since I’ve enjoyed reading some of your stories: met my Boyfriend or Best Friend in late 2012. Like I posted above, it’s my second time around. First married in my 20’s. Had a great marriage until my cancer disgnosis, which was very difficult on both of us. The marriage didn’t survive, but I did (going on 8 years now!). Divorced in my late 30’s and was nervous about dating at that age. Turns out it was no problem, and I had a blast. I would never have believed it, but Boyfriend or Best Friend is even a better match and fit for me than my ex. I am so thankful to have met him. Currently, we are living together in my condo while he renovates his house and then we will move in there and I will sell my place.

     

    We’ve talked about marriage. It’s not super important to him, but he respects that it’s important to me. He took me to Paris on my 40th birthday, and I sorta thought it might happen there, but it didn’t. Oh well! I am looking forward to it sometime in the near (I hope) future.

     

    As for the survey, I would like for us to be alone, although I wouldn’t mind an outdoor location that we both love. I have the balcony of the Kennedy Center in my head, since we practically live there(we are huge music fans and are often attending concerts there). Definitely do NOT want him down on one knee though! I’d like us both to be standing. Lol. We are planning a big vacation somewhere far away soon (thinking Japan, Austrailia, New Zealand, somewhere faaaar from where we live), so maybe it will be there. Anyway, thanks for adding me to the list!

    mrs.akjp:  You can remove #166!! I had a feeling it would be today (last week) and it was! 

    We went to a gorgeous conservatory and wandered for a while before coming to the rose garden. I found a jasmine tree, which I love and stopped to smell it. I said “It just smells like love,” and he said yes and I turned and there he was. I squealed. I asked if he was serious. I cried a little. I squeezed and kissed him. And then he reminded me that I hadn’t actually answered… Obviously it was a yes!

    Congratulations ladies – the bees have been busy! πŸ˜‰

    LOVE this poll, by the way – I’ve actually never really thought about whether I’d want it just the two of us or with other people! All I know is that a flash mob would be game over, haha!
