I am Engaged to be Married!

I have some wonderful news to share! February 23, 2017 I got engaged to Anthony, the love of my life! :~) It was sooner then we had planned but we love each other immensely and want to share our life together so he proposed and I said yes! It was a wonderful day though I wasn’t properly dressed, lol! I was in my coral colored daisy shorts and coral colored T-shirt when he came over! I thought he had come over to talk to my parents about things as we were all in an argument but he said he’d thought long and hard and knew he loved me and wanted to marry me! There was more said but as it was from the heart I barely remember it as it was just a crazy awesome experience as he got down on his knees and asked me to marry him and I was like are you crazy and he was like kind of, lol! It was the kind of moment you had to see to understand, lol!

Anthony is very calming and relaxing to me and loves me for me and I love him for him! We are crazy and funny and love to have fun together and play games together but also know when to be serious in certain matters! He is loving and caring! He is family oriented and does so much for his family and friends and for those in our Christian congregation! He is one of Jehovah's Witnesses like I am! He has a soft heart and I've gotten to see him in emotional state which is in itself a privilege in a way because he's shown his even softer side! The moments I've been able to comfort him and the moments I can pour my heart out to him have brought us closer! There was one night where when doing something slightly insane, braving dense fog at 3 AM to make a gesture, I came to realize how much I truly love him and didn't and don't want to loose him! The way he looks at me and talks to me and cares for me is beyond attractive! He's gone through a lot in his life but it's made him a very gentle caring man and I can't wait to spend my life with him and to someday start a family with him!

So we have a date sort of set but until we nail it down exactly I won’t post it here but it will most likely be in the early fall months!

When we went to look at rings we had already been talking about rings and we both love opals so we knew an opal was what we wanted and I had already looked at a beautiful opal ring at Helzburg Diamonds so we went there! The manager Michael was so nice and did so much to make the experience wonderful for us! I decided on an opal ring with pink and white sapphires around the opal and side of the silver band! We decided to have two additional silver bands soldered to the sides of it to make a one of a kind unique ring as seen in the pictures below! We bought our wedding bands as well but I won’t put pictures of them here until after we are married!

So I wanted to share my exciting news and say that as news comes along I will share the details and any pictures I have I’ll share and when the wedding does come I will post about the day and share pictures of it as well!

Flowers and Poem!

So my fiancĂ© *yes look for the post shortly on that development* gave me some really pretty pink and white carnations after the first bouquet of flowers he had given me when he asked me out died. He couldn’t stand to walk by the decrepit flowers any longer and I didn’t want to get rid of them because they were special but I knew I had to as they were dead. So one day Anthony came for lunch and brought me the new bouquet of really beautiful flowers shown below!

Then on February 9th 2017 he brought me the poem he had written me himself and had framed! He had written it a few days before on his breaks at work! I took two flowers from the first bouquet of flowers he had given me when he asked me out and I dried and pressed them and put them within the frame and it looks gorgeous! I put the frame on my dresser in my bedroom! He is so very romantic in writing me a poem and for giving me flowers! He treats me wonderfully and is very romantic and emotional himself! He puts up with a lot for me!
The other picture is of one of our more formal lunch dates which was very enjoyable!



So my nickname with my fiancé *yes look for the post on that development* calls me kitten as he says I'm cute like a kitten but can be fierce when I play, lol! Which is kind of true as I'm brutal when I play card games, board games and well any games really, lol! So a few weeks ago my sister found this on Facebook and sent this to me and we found it to be so true!
