Trying to post this for what seems like the millionth time! The bee is really messing with me these days!
Despite knowing it was coming soon, my fiancé (!!!!!!!) managed to completely surprise me! The one day I was absolutely certain it wouldn’t happen…it did!
We went to my aunts house for Easter Sunday. Most of my family lives a few hours away so it’s not super often we’re all together, even though we’re a close family. Fiancé is extremely shy so I was always certain a proposal would happen with just the two of us there. Little did I know my entire family was in on it!
My little cousin announced that she started a new tradition. She had an Easter egg for each person with a little sticky note that had something written about each person inside of it. We went outside and as she called each person, they opened their egg and read their note. (Is: so and so is kind, funny, smart and caring).
When she called my name, I opened my note and it said “Marry me!” I was genuinely so confused that I kind of just stood there looking like a deer in headlights it wasn’t until my uncle said “turn around” that I did to see my now fiancé down on one knee in front of my entire family.
Everyone was crying and cheering and it was genuinely the happiest moment. I felt so loved and so blessed to not only call him my fiancé but to share this exciting moment with the people who mean the most to me.
My parents even made he and I corny (but adorable) T-shirts that we wore the rest of the day and took photos in.
I didn’t even get a good look at my ring until about 20 minutes after he proposed. Fiancé designed it himself and it’s more beautiful than anything I could’ve ever hoped for. I’m not exactly sure of the specifics but I believe the center diamond is just under 1.5 carats. I wish I was good at taking pictures of it but I’ll attach some here. He even added some rose gold underneath.
