and I said yes.
We've been talking about weddings since the beginning our relationship over 2 years ago... and talking about our wedding for at least the past year (I've been planning ). He always used the excuse that I needed to get my annulment done. That was granted in the beginning of May. So the ball has since been in his court and I've been waiting.... turns out he went and got a ring a couple of weeks after my annulment was finished, asked my dad if he could marry me, and waited another couple of weeks before finally asking me!! Everyone knew it was coming and that he had a ring... except me! Well, not everyone, but it feels that way. lol. My immediate family and bff knew for weeks.
He tried to trick me with an empty ring box sitting on the dryer, but I pretended that I didn't see it sitting there. He ran downstairs almost immediately after I went down to get clothes out of the dryer. I would have peeked in the box if he wasn't there. Since I ruined his plan by ignoring the box, he "found" the real ring box in the dryer and proposed. Now I will never do laundry without thinking of him.
I had to get the ring sized and they said it will take 5 days. Ugh. SO had the ring all of this time and now I still have to wait to wear it!!!

I am fiercely independent and I won’t apologize for it. I'd rather be single than settled.

Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless

Congratulations... so when is the wedding?
