Engaged in RM 10/09, wedding RM 11/10

Recommended Posts

In Oct of 2009, we spent a 1 week return visit to Royal Suites Grand Palladium after having fallen in love with the place in nov 2008 (2 weeks). On the planned shopping day in Playa Del Carmen, I was kinda suprised when my FI suggested we shop at Diamonds International... the jewelry is fantastic, but not exactly in our gift-budget range.. but I followed him in innocently....

I was searching for a replacement earing with a tropical stone, when he pulled me over to THE RINGS.... He had had the attendant pull out a few models, on the counter. I was kinda shy about trying them on, not realizing there was a purchase in my future. The attendant must have been in on it, 'cause he was having a wale of a time, with bigger and bigger stones until I almost fainted. Finally, FI pulled out the initial ring he had chosen, and slipped it on my finger with a "it's perfect". Perfect ? i asked... "Yes, if you're to be married, you'll need a ring.." well, the floor just bottomed out.... I was expecting the big question around New Years... not here! We walked out of the shop after the details were settled, I was in a daze.... Walked over to Starbucks, sat down and cried.... He then got down on one knee (well almost, we're an older couple!) and proposed with the most touching and heartful declaration of love....

His intent was that we get married then and there, but, due to wrong information about the paperwork needed, we decided to postpone, and, finally (months later - remember - we're old), thought it would be a great idea to seal the deal in Riviera Maya the following year, with the 5 kids and their spouses.... So Nov 11th of this year, on the white sands, we will kiss and say "I do"..... Ohhh I so do !!!!!elefant.gif
