*Title is what G first thought the lyrics to "Single Ladies" were
and on that note.....
I have news! G asked me to marry him last week while we were in Bermuda. G: romantic stuff, down on one knee, ring box(OMG!!!) Me: Frantic "YES" followed by intense tidal wave of tears.
Shortly after followed by us having photoshoot of the ring just about everywhere: drinking beer, in the pool, on the beach, on the scooter. Needless to say it was the most amazing vacation ever. We thought that no one other than our immediate families knew, and that we would have SO many people to tell upon our return. However it turned out that my brother jumped the gun a wee bit posting a congrats on his facebook. As we have MANY many mutual friends, the cat was out of the bag....or the engagement was out of Bermuda or what-have-you. It's funny cause I still sort of feel in shock when I think about it. I wanted this to happen for so long, but I now joke that I just blacked out when he got on his knee. It was more than I could have ever asked for, and being engaged is just really a lovely special time that we are sharing. We are looking at fall 2012 for the wedding, give us some time for me to finish school, and us to both be working and saving a little. Things are just SO different this time--I mostly forget that there was ever another time, this just feels so right.
