"We float like two lovers in a painting by Chagall" ~The Weepies
My 26th birthday was Tuesday July 5, 2011 and my (then) bf took me over to my parents for what I thought was a quiet family dinner. But when we got there I found all my family and friends (and his family!) waiting out on the deck!
About halfway through the night he suggested we take a walk (my parents have a pretty big yard) and we ended up sitting on the front porch swing (which is literally where, as a teenager, I used to sit and dream about marrying my prince charming!) and he said he couldn't wait any longer to give me my birthday present and pulled out the ring and proposed!! So then we went back to the party where my parents were waiting with champagne for everyone and it became a birthday/engagement party.
It was uh-maze-ing! I mean, we live together and have talked about marriage so I kiiind of thought something might happen around my birthday but I had NO idea he would get my parents involved and do it in such a big way! He's really not one for planning ahead so it must have been really hard... or else my mom helped a lot haha. Anyway, to sum it up...
Best. Birthday. EVER.
Time to start planning!!!
