- Wedding: June 2015
*cue giant grin*
Yesterday was the day!! We had been chatting about weddings since he got home from work, just kind of tgrowing ideas around. I knew he ha the ring and I picked it out on etsy but had never seen it in real life!
So we were snuggling in bed and he brought it up. I told him about the dreams I kept having that it was weird looking and he says “give me a week but let’s see if it fits I think it might” I was curious too because it’s a Size 6 and I was pretty sure my hands are WAY fatter than that.
So he brings it in the dark room, lays down beside me and tells me he was going to do it when we go on our hike up the beacon Sunday but he doesn’t want to wait and will I promise to marry him now and we’ll still going hiking on Sunday and it can be our “official” story.
I thought that was sweet, and of course I said yes!! But I was still in the dark and still hadn’t seen it, but it was on my finger and felt amazing!! (It fit! The band is weird on the backside and is flat the wrong way for my finger so it’s snug over my knuckle an I think I will get it sized up and the back flattened)
So I told him to take it back while I went to shower and then we’d go for a walk to the swings so he could put it on me there and I could see it for the first time!
We get out the door and he goes “I’m too nervous I’m going to drop it, marry me again?” And puts it on my finger when we get outside. It was darkish at this point so every time we walked past a street light I would look at how shiny it is. We went to the swings, swang and talked about our life and then walked home.
It was adorable. I seriously could not ask for a more perfect and wonderful man to marry!!
We’re sill going to go hiking tomorrow morning with a nice picnic and a blanket, maybe I will be able to convince him to snap a couple selfies with me atop the mountain 😉
Its Thanksgiving weekend so we’ll get to show our families (his tonight and mine tomorrow) our parents already know but haven’t seen the ring yet! I’m sure my mom will be excited to start planning out loud.
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful that I am going to marry the man of my dreams!!
