I haven’t posted often, but I’m so excited that I wanted to share! (Also, I have a cold so this is to cheer me up a bit.)
Backstory: I asked him to marry me back in September and he said yes, however, he asked that we wait to announce it until he returned the proposal. It was five long months between then and now.
But it was worth the wait!
We were in DC last weekend visiting some friends that live up there, and doing some sightseeing. Saturday, we were standing on the street in front of the Newseum, looking at the giant First Amendment on the building when he whispers in my ear, “I have a question for you. Will you marry me?” I looked down and he was cupping the ring box in his hands. I said yes, and he told me to put the ring on. I wanted to cry, but it was way too cold and windy for tears. lol
And I am in love with my ring!
Not the best pic but it was taken on the metro on the way back to the car.

Thank you! It’s been an eventful week. 🙂 I can hardly believed it happened. I’d resigned myself to waiting for another few months while things settled down in our lives, but he felt like now was the right time.
He also gave me a little engagement ring charm for my pandora bracelet. It’s living on a necklace right now because I didn’t want it scratched up.

@elizabeth2004: It is super sparkly, and probably the fanciest piece of jewelry I own.
I’m still in shock that it’s official, and we’re getting married. Even if we don’t have a set date.
