My fiance' and I got engaged last Christmas Eve. We spent the evening at my family's house opening presents with my parents and my sister's family. (My family has a weird tradition of opening our presents on Christmas Eve.) My fiance' is from England so he was spending all of Christmas with my family. After spending some time at my parent's house we went back to my fiance's apartment to bake cookies and watch Christmas movies. I walked out of the room for a minute and when I started to walk back in my fiance' stopped me and made me close my eyes. He led me to the living room in front of the Christmas tree. When I opened my eyes I saw a ring in a box hanging on the Christmas tree. I stood there wondering if it was for real or if this was some sort of twisted joke. Then he asked me if I would marry him (after I had to make him get down on one knee. lol). For about the first 5 minutes I just kept asking, "Are you serious?!, Are you serious?!, Seriously?!" I finally said yes (after ruining the moment for him by my not so eloquent response). He still, to this day, reminds me of my weird response but I've assured him that there are many other brides that I've heard about having the same response as me. lol
So I've been a member of PW since August and have spent many, many hours on here getting great ideas and suggestions from all of you and now I'm FINALLY getting around to creating my own bio. I'll be adding a little bit at a time but I'll get it done eventually. I have to say - You girls are amazing with all of your wedding planning and designing! I'm about 4 and a half months away and am hoping to get inspired to DIY some thing for my own wedding!
I've changed a few of my pages to private just in case my FI finds this page. Just send me a request and I'll add you so you can see everything!
