last wednesday night (the night before thanksgiving) dave proposed!
we have been together for 2.5 years and were best friends for 3+ years before that....so if you look at the big picture its not at all surprising that we are getting married. i, however, was surprised on the timing. he had been telling me for some time that we/he wasn't ready yet...which i can respect. but it was a lie.
how it went down:
we had been planning for about a week or so to go have a nice romantic date night at "our" restaurant (Mango Tree Thai Bistro)....but for some reason we could not go. so instead we went to a nice place by my house called Canyon Cafe. The weather was nice so we sat outside and enjoyed a great meal. afterwards we went and got some tea at the Starbucks and went back to my house. the plan, or so i thought, was to hang out on the patio. dave was going to study for an upcoming certification test and i was going to crochet granny squares for an afghan, but instead we ended up chatting about us and what we want our future to be like. i got up to get something to drink from the kitchen and when i sat back down he pulled a little wooden box out of nowhere....opened it and asked me to marry him. after i caught my breath i of course said YES and then cried at him for alittle while....what can i say im a total cream puff.
it was magical....i loves him so much!
so needless to say my blog may have quite a bit of wedding stuff...plans...inspiration...etc on it for the next year. i will make an effort not to completely make this a wedding blog...because i still like my crafty stuff, but prepare yourself.
