Love the story!!! 

 

Engagement and getting married had already been discussed because for us to be together I must apply for a fiancé visa to move to the U.S. I had already told him that I wanted to be surprised, and no cliché like a ring in a champagne glass, and had described aspects of a ring I would like.

 

When I was visiting for a week early July, he got really serious and told me that he knew the type of ring I wanted but it would mean a lot to him and his family that IF and WHEN he proposed he would do so with a ring his mother that has just passed in November left for him to give to the woman he chose to marry. I was obviously very emotional about it, and thought he would probably do it next time we were in Florida, where the ring was. He also added that the ring would be too small, because his mother was very petite, but that it had a pearl with 7 or 8 diamonds and that it was beautiful.

 

Anyways the week went on, and this completely slipped my mind. We stayed at a hotel one night and had gone out for a few drinks. We were sitting on the bed just cuddling, my head was on his shoulder and were talking about random stuff. And then he said ‘’well honey how would you like to have 8 diamonds on your finger?’’ I looked up and he was holding the ring, my very lady like reaction was :o  WTF?!? Lol. I took the ring from him amazed, just looking at it. I couldn't believe he had fooled me. I handed it it back to him and said ‘’Do it again!’’ and then he said the most beautiful things to me about how he never thought he would love someone so much and that his mother wouldn't want it any other way.

 

It was simple and beautiful and so us. Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes.  


I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend

Funny stories. I was complaining all day so I'm quite surprised he still asked lol I'm a sucker for surprises but I don't like when things are cliche. My friend is proposing to his gf after our wedding (it's their 5 yr anniversary) and i told him not to do it on the actual date (she may suspect it) but to do it right before they leave the resort (as a suggestion).
Good Luck :)
