I don’t often post about personal matters, but I’m so elated to announce that I recently became engaged to the man previously known as The Boyfriend, and always as the love of my life. And what a wonderful man he is – we’re both so excited and happy to share the news!
I was absolutely surprised and shocked when it happened – I didn’t even have my nails painted to my dismay! But the surprise element is part of what makes it so special.
So how did he do it? Well, we had plans to have dinner at a tavern on a lake which I’ve gone to every summer for my entire life. It’s nothing special, just somewhere I like to go for old time’s sake. I should have known something was off when The Fiancé was all of a sudden no longer hungry after we arrived and agreed to order chicken fingers and mini tacos as our meal.
After we ate, we went up to the roof deck bar for a drink and he asked me if I wanted to go by the water and if I thought it would be ok if we went on the dock. I never turn down a chance to admire the lake, so we went down and walked out on the dock to look at the water and watch the boats drive around.
And that’s when he started getting sentimental, and then started on a lovely little speech and then got down on one knee. And that’s about the time my mind went blank as I started to process just what was happening!
He pulled the ring out of his pocket and put it on my finger. I was so surprised and so excited I don’t even think I said “Yes!” right away, I just kept nodding my head and hugging him and admiring the ring!
So the adventure begins! I promise this won’t turn into a wedding blog… but I will share information, tips, and ideas if I think they would be of interest to you, dear readers.
Thanks again for all of your support – I truly do appreciate it!
