Hi bees 🙂
I’m bored and can’t get my mind off this, so I thought I’d get it all out by updating you lovelies. So quick background info for those of you that don’t know my situation: My SO and I have been together 3 months short of 9 years, and our timeline is to be engaged by our dating anniversary in the middle of June! It’s getting so close and I’m so so excited. The only problem with this is as soon as we’re done school in April (me at the beginning of April, him in the middle) I feel like my waiting truly begins since we can finally relax and enjoy ourselves.
So anyways, we have a small road trip planned a few hours out of town at the end of April. We take this trip every year after exams. I’ve been starting to picture the perfect situation for a proposal on this trip, and subtly teasing him about this and dropping hints. Now, he knows that between the end of April and the middle of June, I will constantly be on my toes expecting a proposal at any time, I know I won’t be able to help it! And he flat out told me not to expect anything on the trip. He wants me to be able to enjoy it and not get my hopes up. *cue slight disappointment*. Oh well, at least he’s honest and now I can enjoy our trip without freaking out at every possible moment.
So yeah. I’m not sure how much point my post has (and sorry about the length!) other than an update! It’s getting close and I’m starting to freak out with excitement. Help me keep it together, bees! 🙂 Anyone else with a similar timeline??

I just had a quick look at your profile – you’re 21 and have been with your SO for 9 years?? That’s so awesome and sweet! I really hope you guys are together forever :3
Super excited for you and wishing you the best ^^

@WannaBeeMrsB: No longer in the same situation, but I was not too long ago. We got engaged about 2 weeks after our 9 year anniversary. We went on a trip to celebrate our anniversary and I had an inkling feeling it would happen then. He told me not to focus on a proposal and at one point I thought it wouldn’t happen. But, he kept acting strange during our historic train ride and right before it ended, he popped the question.
Hang in there! I know how it feels to be together for so long and to wait it out, but it’s worth it!

@MaidMarian: Aw thank you! 🙂
@bmo88: You give me hope haha! I’m going to try to not think to much about it in the next few months, because honestly it’s not that long and I know he really wants it to be as much as a surprise as possible, but it won’t be easy!

@WannaBeeMrsB: I wouldn’t be all anxious. You may get disapointed. Things seam to look good, so patience (easier said then done, I know, I’m a waiting bee too). Enjoy your time with him, things will happen naturally! ***
