Two weeks ago on Sunday, N. got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I said yes. :)
We had looked at engagement rings together before, a few months ago (before we started the house buying process), mainly for me (and him) to get an idea of the kind of ring I would like. We have been talking about getting married this year for a while, so I knew he would pop the question at some point.
Then the house happened and things got a little busy for a while. One evening that week, I suggested having another look at rings, but N was pretty adamant about not having another look at engagement rings. I didn’t get it until he spelled it out for me: He had already bought me a ring.
Wow, I was completely surprised, I had not expected that at all. He told me he hadn’t picked up the ring yet, though, and that he was going to pick it up that weekend (hard to keep these things secret when you live together).
On Sunday morning, N surprised me by proposing to me at home, and then suggested that we pick up my ring together.
Needless to say, that was not at all how N had planned it originally, but oh well, that’s how life goes sometimes, right? He loves me and I love him. That’s what matters.
And I absolutely love my ring!
Isn’t it stunning? I can’t believe he actually got me this ring! It was one of the rings I tried back in October when we had a look at engagement rings together, and my absolute favourite!
I love the setting of the diamond, unlike any other ring I’d seen. It’s absolutely perfect for me.
After we got home, we asked N’s mum to come over for a cup of tea (hehe), and we told her we got engaged. She was almost in tears. Then I called my parents to tell them as well. We are planning to get married in August, while they are visiting.
So far, we don’t have anything definite planned or booked yet, just a few options we are considering, but I will leave that for another post.
I am so happy. We are so lucky to have found each other and I can’t imagine spending my life with anyone else. I cannot wait for N to be my husband and I his wife.
