weekend recap: the one where i get engaged

{This actually happened three weekends ago.}

Y'all, I am ENGAGED! 

April 25th was our two year anniversary. 
We decided to go to Asheville, NC and the Biltmore Estate 
to celebrate our anniversary. 
I never in a million years thought we would get engaged on this trip. 
In hindsight, it was the perfect time to get engaged, 
I was just expecting it later in the year. 

I was all prepared to blog about the trip, the food, and the Biltmore. 
Planning posts in my head during the trip. 
The food was delicious. 
The Biltmore was beautiful. 
The trip was amazing! 
But for now, I will fast forward to the important part. 

We had heard that Biltmore on Saturdays are crazy busy. 
So, we did the Biltmore on Friday. 
Don't get excited just yet, 
I did not get engaged at the Biltmore. 
Most people would think that the Biltmore would be the perfect setting for a romantic proposal. 
And for most women it would be a dream come true. 
Luckily, for me, D knows me so much better than that. 

I am an introvert to the max and 
HATE being the center of attention. 
D knew that I would not enjoy a public proposal. 

Saturday was our actual anniversary. 
The weather had been beautiful the entire trip, 
but, of course, it was raining Saturday morning. 
Which messed up D's plans a little bit. 
He had planned to propose that morning while we were 
out exploring Asheville; 
maybe on a mountain overlook or downtown. 
I do not think he had an exact plan in mind. 
But when he saw that it was raining, 
he decided to do it in the hotel room. 

And I am so glad he did. 
It was a private, special moment just between the two of us. 
No, I  do not have a picture of THE moment he proposed. 
{Much to the disappoint of D's sister. ;)}
But that is okay with me. 
The proposal fit our relationship to a tee. 
It was simple and perfect! 

Now let the wedding planning begin!

  1. aww congrats!!! this is awesome!
    i'm with you on not being the centre of attention. KC proposed in the living room on an ordinary night and it was perfect for me and us as a couple. just shows how well they know us ;)
    congrats again!

  2. Yayyyyy congrats! I had been meaning to email you and tell you that you can't just announce to the internet that you're engaged without telling the rest of the story. Love your ring! It's so dainty and different and looks like he designed it, it's an antique, or he just has great taste (or some combo of the three!). Bring on the wedding posts!

  3. Congratulations! I'm so excited for you :) Nathan proposed the day after our anniversary because he knew I would be expecting it on our anniversary. Sneaky, sneaky! Your ring is gorgeous!

  4. Aww, I loved reading your story! Congratulations again!

  5. Good luck with all of the wedding planning, It'll be so much fun for you!! Congrats!!

  6. CONGRATS!!! That's so awesome!! Looks like a beautiful location for such a special moment! And the ring is gorgeous :)
