- Wedding: October 2015
Last night, on the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, not five, but one very lovely golden ring!
Just a week ago, my love and I went ring shopping and found a beautiful ring (you can see that post here), and he took it away from me until he could propose. I thought I was going to have to wait for longer, but he suprised me last night when he took me to the park by my old house that I took him to on our first date. The second he drove us here, I was certainly suspicious. We walked along the trail as we held hands, and he started telling me how much he loved me and other sweet things. He seemed nervous and he took me out by the pond, and asked if he could could just propose right then, that he just couldn’t wait any longer. I laughed and said yes, then he got on one knee. The rest was a blur until he asked if I’d marry him, in which (surprise) I said yes. I was crying from the second he got on his knee, even though I knew it would eventually be happening.
I’m so happy to be engaged to the love of my life. I still feel like I’m on cloud nine. Unfortunately, we are going to have to have a long engagement, but waiting so long is going to be much more enjoyable with this lovely ring on my finger.
So without further ado, my dainty and beautiful engagement ring. My fiancé (!!!) and I had a small budget, and we found her at a pawn shop for $300 out the door. He got her checked out at a local jeweler, and he wanted to buy it off him for $900! I’m so happy to be wearing this beautiful symbol of our commitment. I’ll get some better pictures after a much needed manicure and I use my nice camera for once, instead of my phone.
