We’re Engaged!

Yesterday, during our visit to his house in Cavite which is 80% constructed, my boyfriend of six years popped the question. Yes, the question that every girl wants to hear from the guy she wants to spend the rest of her life with! This time I answered with a loud YES. I said “this time” because he already proposed a few days before at the confines of their home kitchen. Back then, I answered with several NOs while smiling happily. Of course, those NOs actually meant a YES.

The boyfriend’s final proposal was impromptu and quite far from how I imagined it to be. But then I realized he’s really not the type who throws big surprises and executes them well. And though his proposal fell short of my expectations, I still love him to pieces because when I looked into his eyes while he was asking if I wanted to marry him, I saw the purity of his intentions and his overwhelming love for me.

So yeah, we’re engaged now. Both of our families were happy about the news. I believe the “pamamanhikan” is happening right after his parents’ Bohol vacation. We haven’t started planning the details of the wedding, though. Just thinking about them makes me dizzy already. But we’re very excited about it and hopefully, we could finalize things one at a time.

I’m also planning to create a wedding blog where I could share and discuss everything about our wedding, so watch out for that. :)

    Finally! It’s happening! This week has been a fairy tale–After the Royal Wedding, the bad guy was killed, now there’s the “hand of an angel with hair? wearing an engagement ring”! I am so happy for both of you and Edwin. I need to make papayat na, for the gown. Yehey, maid of honor ako!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! That is exciting! As a newlywed (uhm, 6 1/2 months married?), I can still vividly remember all the excitement of an engagement and preparing for a wedding… and of course, of the wedding. Best wishes and congratulations to you too. :-) By the way, my wedding blog is still in existence (lol!) so in case you’d like to check it out and maybe learn some stuff or get inspired, it’s at http://mareeyah.com. Oh, so exciting!!!

      Thank you! The task of wedding planning seems overwhelming and exhausting (both financially and psychologically) but I know we can do it. I’m definitely checking out your wedding blog as I’ll need every wedding resource I could get. :)
