Hahaha and that ring also just happens to fit your left ring finger?  It definitely sounds like it could be coming soon but just repeat the word “patience” over and over in your mind while you’re waiting.  I had to actively try to not bring it up in those few months leading up to it because once I had the sense that he was really going to do it, it was ALL I wanted to talk about.  Honestly, getting off the Bee for a little bit helped.  But I would also just set the goal for myself every week (or start smaller, every day), to not say anything ring, wedding, baby related.  Then, when he finally does say something completely on his own without any prompting, it feels so much more genuine and special because you know it was on his mind without you putting it there.  Sounds like you’ve got a good one OP, zip it and keep your nails did!

Things sound very promising bee! Just keep quiet, make sure your nails looks nice (but don’t make it suspicious – if the surprise means a lot to him, you don’t want him to think you suspect ), and be as patient as you can. Try to distract yourself and not count on it happening during your vacation, so if it doesn’t, you’re not disappointed.

I’m excited for you!

I definitely think it’s coming. Breathe deeply and maybe find something really engrossing to occupy your mind. I’m reading a ton while I wait to see what my own boyfriend’s next move is going to be. We’ve got a huge trip coming up in April that I think *might* be it, so I’m also planning that and playing with these new watercolor brush pens I bought and working on bullet journaling a little more regularly.

Just focus on having the best possible time with him. That way, if it doesn’t happen, it’s still an incredible trip and if it does it’s this glowingly happy memory you get to look back on for the rest of your life.
