Thank you for this post! I needed a “there’s a light at the end of the tunnel” kind of reminder lol. One of those days…

How did he propose?

Yeah I’m totally with you. The non official proposal/marriage discussion was Nov 2008. We were moving and he says he can’t live without me and wants to marry me. I tell people we’re engaged…but apparently we technically weren’t. He didn’t want to do it without a real ring, and didn’t have the money for one.

Sooo…I waited until Dec 2009 for my actual ring. Planned for the wedding and everything.

The actual official proposal, slash ringage was really sweet, very us, and totally worth the wait. He brought me breakfast on a sunday morning and got down on one knee. He said a few nice things and pulled out the ring box. Opened it up and there was cat food in it. He called for our cat, Lucy (who plays a big part in our life together) and asked her what she did with the ring. He brought her over, scolded her, and “found” the ring on her collar. It was a really cute, thoughtful proposal.

@jadeblue: OMG! That was beautiful! I would definitely want something like that. So that’s why I try not to say anything to him about it. Since we’ve been ring shopping, picked the ring, and he knows what I want. I don’t want to beat the dead horse and pressure him into a rushed non-romantic proposal. Your proposal brought tears to my eyes.
