My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have a pretty incredible trip planned over President’s Day Weekend (which also happens to be right in between Valentine’s Day and my birthday – you know, just to make it even more significant). We will be spending the long weekend in Napa, one of our favorite places in the world, and dinning at French Laundry. When he suggested the trip back in November, I totally assumed this would be THE WEEKEND (based on the fact that we’d just started ring shopping and on previous timeline conversations we’ve had).
I was counting down until the upcoming trip, as I’m so ready to be engaged, when I realized that it’s only 23 days away now, and I’m 98% sure Boyfriend or Best Friend has not bought a ring yet. He asked me a few questions this weekend about my ring preferences, which I doubt he would be doing if had a ring. He could be trying to throw me off the trail, but they were rather important questions (size, etc.), so it would be kind of hard to have bought a ring already without confirming those things with me.
I also know from ring shopping together that he plans to have a custom e-ring made, so it’s highly unlikely that he’ll make a purchase AND have the ring in hand within the next 23 days.
I’m trying not be too upset that I’ll likely be coming back from another romantic trip sans ring (we went to Paris last year, and dealing with the post-vacation hand checks from friends and coworkers was brutal). I know that he is working on the ring and that he will propose soon, within the next few months, but I was really hoping it would be on this trip. 🙁 I’m trying really hard to get over it now, because if I don’t, I’m afraid that I’ll start crying on the flight home and ruin an otherwise awesome trip. Ugh…is this time in my life over yet?!
