- Wedding: June 2014
I feel so silly – just a month ago I wrote a post about how he was NEVER going to propose and then he did it! He proposed on December 6th, but I am just now catching my breath to post about it.
He picked me up from work on a Friday, and parked on a side street with gorgeous historic houses and tall trees, instead of the usual parking lot. As we walked hand in hand down the sidewalk to the car, he dropped the car keys he was carrying. So, he bent down to pick them up on one knee, facing the street, and I turned around to ask if he needed help… Before I could even process what happened, he turned to face me (still on one knee) and pulled the ring box out of the other pocket! I was so shocked and started crying immediately, of course. After lots of romantic things and lots of kissing and hugging, he put this beauty on my finger!
It was such a surprise and so sweet and simple – perfect for us!
I am ecstatic and it has been so fun to share this with our family and friends over the holidays! Now the planning begins!
For the ring curious – it is a .7 carat cushion cut diamond, in a Henri Daussi setting. I am just in love with it! It is prominent, yet dainty, somehow.
Here is the silly selfie we took after we got home. 🙂
