4 years ago today, a certain boy got down on his knee and asked that magical question every girl waits to hear. And I said yes of course.
After waiting for 3 and a half years, I was so excited to finally get engaged. We had decided to wait until after we both graduated from college and so when Mike graduated in October of 2007, I started to wonder when it might happen....
So I waited...my birthday came and went....and then December 8th, I decided to take a nap. Mike woke me up shortly after and told me to put a dress on. I didn't notice at the time that he was dressed up. So I sleepily got changed and went to find the lights dimmed. He turned on my favorite song "The Way You Look Tonight" and we danced. I began to realize what was going on and then I saw him go down on one knee. I was so excited and realized that I still had a ring on the all important ring finger so I quickly took it off and shoved it onto the ring finger of my right hand. Obviously, I wasn't thinking. Because just a few seconds after that, I remembered that the ring didn't fit on that finger and it was quickly cutting off the circulation in my finger! So I began to tug on it, trying to get it off. All while Mike was saying his romantic proposal speech.
Thankfully, I finally got it off, he put a gorgeous ring on my finger and I cried and laughed and made it an entire 5 minutes before he told me to go call everyone. I guess it was obvious that I was bursting to share the news. We got married a short 6 months later!
