Four years and a toddler later, we are finally engaged!
Jeremy proposed to me on our 4 years anniversary celebration back in April (post found here).
For the whole 1-2 weeks leading up to our anniversary, he hinted me that my present was something that I've always wanted, was electrical and measured his arms out to about 30cm. So I automatically thought it was a coffee machine haha.
Just before digging into our dinner, we decided to exchange gifts first before getting dirty with the ribs we got.
Jeremy wanted to go first, so he told me to sit at the edge of the bed while he fetches his present. I thought nothing of it, just that it was weird telling me to sit at the edge of the bed when it's just a coffee machine LOL.
Shouts to close my eyes.
He comes out, tells me to open my eyes.
I opened my eyes and he was on one knee with the ring box in my face.
I didn't know what to say/do. I froze for a good minute, though it felt like five.
He says "Angel Sombrino, will you marry me?".
Of course, I say yes.
I lay back on the bed and cry. lol.
Jeremy: "wait, come back up. I have to give you the ring". haha
Me: "Now I don't want to give you my present, yours shits on mine big time". lol but he still loved my present.
Though I didn't get to wear the ring straight away. The day after our anniversary celebration, we went to the jewellers to get my ring re-sized, because of my tiny fingers and it took a whole month to get it back.
Props to Jeremy for choosing this ring! It's beautiful and I love it so much! I had only tried on one ring with him and it wasn't even similar to this one. He definitely did great and knows me, for sure.
We don't have a set year for the wedding yet because we're not planning on getting married until a few more years. But I'm still looking around and keeping tabs on the things I want/like so when the year comes, I know what I want to do instead of having the feeling of being rushed and having "so little time".
How does it feel like being engaged? We feel like we're a little closer as a couple, it felt like we were on a little honeymoon phase and of course, exciting just thinking about planning the wedding and what's to come.
I can't wait for the upcoming years, we have so much to look forward to!
Another milestone we made together.
