I was busy cleaning the house when Chris was in the bedroom. I didn't know what he was doing because I was busy. He came into the kitchen and grabbed my hands and pulled me to the bedroom, where I was greeted by a room filled with lit candles and the lights being off. He told me how he wished he could take me out to a fancy dinner but that it's the thought that counts. I told him as long as it's just us, I'm happy. He got down on one knee and presented my ring to me and asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES! Here it is ^.^ It's a Garnet teardrop ring. It's his birthstone. I told him if he ever got me a ring that it had to be something to symbolize him so I always had him with me.
We may be having a long engagement, but I am a large planner so please show respect and not point out how I shouldn't worry about planning yet. Big time pet peeve.
