This is the story of the boy and I. We met two and a half years ago at Starbucks in Cook Street Village in Victoria. He was an undergrad and I was a law student. I was a big city girl and he was a boy from a small island. Two very different people that turned out to make a perfect pair.
Truth is I knew he was the one from the very beginning. In fact the night before we were going to go out I said to a friend of mine "I feel like I've been waiting my whole life for this!" It was a funny thing to say because I'm not prone to pronouncements like that.
But I was right . . .
And so yesterday it happened!! I knew something was up because he was acting funny. Insisting we go out for dinner and things like that. I also called him from work and he was out and would not really say what he was doing. I just knew . . .
We went out for dinner but really it was just an excuse to get me outside the house while he set things up. When we came back he had dimmed all the lights except one light which acted as a bit of a spotlight on an open ring box. Holding the most beautiful and perfect ring! :o)
Next to the ring was a card. The boy did this so I would remember what he said, knowing I would be too excited to actually remember. Also on the table was a beautiful dozen long stemmed roses.
He led me over to the ring, grabbed the box, and went to go kneel down. That's when I started bouncing up and down with excitement . . . and accidentally managed to head butt the poor boy! LOL Oh bloggies I wish I was joking but I'm not! I head butted the boy. When he was going to propose!
This led to some serious comic relief. We both laughed and laughed and made jokes about being so new to this engagement thing. :oP
Eventually we calmed down . . . he got down on one knee . . . he asked . . . and I answered. And the rest is the beginning of a wonderful story!
And when did it all set in? Not until I called my parents and told them. After I got off the phone with my Mom and Dad I was overwhelmed with emotion and cried. Tears of joy.
Yesterday bloggies I slept the sleep of the happy. The delighted!!!
A hand shot! :o)
Turns out the Code is a wonderful background for the ring. It gives my point and shoot something to focus on!
Kind of a profile shot of the bling! I heart it!
And from above! I'm going to have to take some more shots in better light. These ones don't do the ring justice. In fact I spent a good chunk of the day sticking my hand in the recesses of my desk (the dark spots!) and watching how the light still came back to me!
And one last shot . . . these are the pictures we received after the center stone was set but before they shipped the ring:
And there you have it! :o) The story of the boy and this girl! The story of the proposal! The story of our love!
