Hey lovely bees 🙂
I’ve been having just the shittiest time at work and trying to orient my career path within the last few months, and today’s already been particularly crummy, so I thought I’d just share some good news on my end.
Through our conversations about the future and marriage and kids, SO and I had constructed a very rough timeline. I gave him about an 8-month time period wherein I’d like to get engaged (which starts next June) and I’d kind of left it at that. He and I were having a tangentially related conversation about a week ago (a friend’s wedding we’re going to in a month) and he said he’d been thinking about our timeline and wanted to let me know that he was planning on proposing by the end of next August. I know it’s within my time window, but I think I just expected him to wait until January-February of 2021. It was surprising (in a great way!) and really awesome to hear that. Everything had been relatively general up until he said, “If you’re still okay with it, I want to pop the question and be engaged by August 31st, 2020.” It’s so amazing (and crazy) to know I’m most likely going to be engaged to my wonderful, sweet, supportive partner within a year 🙂 We’re taking a big trip with my family to Europe at the end of July through the beginning of August, so be miiiight be aiming to do it then!
Just wanted to thank this community for being so awesome. I’ve been on this board for YEARS for work–now for fun/advice/a place to put my wedding knowledge now that I’m not longer in the field–and I feel like I’ve learned so much. Thank you, wonderful bees!
