I'm engaged-- with photos and story
Posted: Jul 2, 2009 12:39 AM

Hi everybody,

My boyfriend of three years proposed last week and I figured I'd post the story and a few photos in case you're one of those people that likes to hear happy stories. ;)


THE STORY: Last Monday night, I went to bed around midnight and FH came
into my room to tuck me in bed and kiss me goodnight, because he didn't
feel like sleeping yet. (I had to wake up at 6am and he didn't!). We
talked and cuddled for quite a while, in fact so long that I dropped a
few subtle hints about how tired I was, but he didn't leave. I noticed
that he was extra chatty and cuddly, but it was nice so I didn't think
much of it or mind staying up.

Eventually, he said, "Can I ask you a question?" My first thought was
to joke and say, "NO!" but I thought better of it and just said, "Yeah
babe, what is it?" He took a deep breath and said real quietly, "Will
you marry me?" I wasn't shocked but I was caught off guard, so the
first thing I blurted out was "Is this for real?!" He answered "Yeah"
so I grinned and said, "Okay, ask me again." He said my name and asked
one more time, and this time I answered "Yes!" He pulled the ring out
of his pocket and started to slide it on my finger, but got stopped at
the knuckle. His face fell. "It won't fit!" I assured him it would and
just to push a little bit, since it was 90+ degrees here last week and
my hands were naturally a bit swollen. Once he got the ring all the way
on, he looked absolutely ecstatic and relieved. I had to sit up and
turn the light on to get my first clear look at it, and then we just
hugged, laughed, talked, and had some uber-sappy moments gazing into
each other's eyes. I didn't fall asleep until 3am, but of course I
didn't care.



I found out later that he was nervous (awww), which is why we talked
for 1-2 hours before he popped the question. He had decided the day
before, Sunday, that he was going to ask me the next day because we'd
had such a fantastic weekend together, which was a finale of the whole
six weeks we spent together after school let out in May. I also knew
that he planned to ask before he left for Japan, and once he was
positive that I also felt ready, the proposal followed soon after.

The tough part was waiting 4 days to tell anybody! We agreed our
parents and siblings should be the first we told, and since we were
visiting our hometown the upcoming weekend (now last weekend) we
decided to wait till Fri. and tell them all in person, and I'm glad we
did. I was nervous in case their reaction wasn't immediately positive,
but everyone seemed truly happy for us so it was really fun. It's great
to talk openly about the future now, since FH and I have been planning
on engagement, moving in together, marrying, and going abroad for quite
awhile now and it's all going to be done in a little over a year (wedding planned for June 2010).

THE PHOTOS....







It's an oak ring with a feature knot made by David Finch, who runs
Touch Wood Rings with his wife (www.touchwoodrings.com). They're this
cute older couple who lives in British Columbia on some land with a
garden and a few animals and live sustainably off the grid, and this is
their hobby/income.

It suits my FH and I very, very well. :)

Wow. Your engagement story is so sweet and I love the unique e-ring. It looks so natural sitting there on the flower! Your FH is really creative.

Congrats, Rose. I hope you enjoy your engagement and have a long and happy marriage.
