I hope everyone had a relaxing and delicious Thanksgiving holiday. This was the first year in 3 years that I didn’t go home for the Thanksgiving holiday. While it was tough not being with my family, I had an amazing time cooking with my boyfriend, who is now my fiancé.
Yes. Fiancé. *Insert goofy grin here*
Earlier in the week, he asked me if I wanted to go to Santa’s Wonderland in College Station. Seeing as Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year (and it was in the same town as A&M), how could I say no? He made reservations for a horse-drawn carriage ride on November 29th, which came with free hot cocoa and access to Santa’s Town. I thought we were just going to look at Christmas lights, so I was my usual dorky self, providing unnecessary commentary while we rode through the woods. I noticed that he was really quiet, except for some humming/sighing sounds he was making. At the very end of the ride, he surprised me. With a dozen, lit-up Roman columns surrounding us, he turned to me and asked me to marry him. He was holding the most beautiful ring, but I didn’t even notice because I was looking so intently into his eyes. I didn’t want to break eye contact. I wanted to stay in that moment forever.
It’s still so surreal. I wake up every morning thinking it was all a really wonderful dream… until I look down at my left hand. We’re ecstatic and can’t wait to start this next chapter in our lives!
More details to come as we begin planning!
