365 Days of Pictures Which Make Me Smile #14 and 15

January 15th, 2016 at 05:45 am

So .. Thursday night NE and I had our belated gift exchange. Let's just say ... it was worth the wait. Big Grin

He waited until he'd gotten all his gifts (my mom had sent one for him too) and then he gave me a box to open.

So .. I open the box, and this was inside of it:

A Russian Nesting doll. I thought it was very beautiful and started opening each layer. Layer after layer after layer. Smile

Then .... when I was close to the end of it, I saw this:

Then NE got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Now I guess I should call him Mr. FT Big Grin

    And I think Miss Manners says wish the bride Good Luck and the groom congratulations. The thought being the groom won the prize and the bride has to deal with the groom. 😀
    So, good luck and here's to many happy years!❤️💍

  24. Petunia 100 Says:

    Oh, that is soon! Lots of planning to do. I am looking forward to reading ALL of the details. Smile

  25. AnotherReader Says:

    Who knew when you quit your job, packed up, and moved to Nebraska, that this would be the outcome? Your belief in the potential of the relationship and your persistence in figuring out how to make it work were definitely justified. Congratulations!

  26. patientsaver Says:

    Congratulations! Were you surprised?

  27. FrugalTexan75 Says:

    Petunia - Yep, lots of planning. I'm hoping that by keeping it very simple, that time won't be too much of an issue.

    AR - I know! Thanks Smile
    PS - Actually I was surprised. We'd been talking about it for awhile, discussing who we might invite if it happened, he'd asked me about what kind of ring I might like, and then there was radio silence. Until about a week or so ago when he asked me if I would want to change my name. That made me wonder, but I definitely was not expecting it. Smile
