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.
