Despite the many pictures of rings now on my blog....there is not one on my finger. Now wait, I am getting married. I am engaged but not in the conventional way that everyone is used to these days. Basically we just decided to get married. No ooeygooey night when he popped the question, just a discussion about when we wanted to get married. We both wanted it this year and I wanted it in the first part of the year so we made a budget and started planning.
I think we have kinda passed the point of him "popping" the question, which doesn't really bother me but yet...how do you tell everyone that is like "Let me see the ring!!" "How did he propose?" "Was it romantic?"
Most of me is fine with not having a ring, but there is my princess side that cringes now that people are starting to hear I am engaged and want to see the non-existent ring. Maybe because of how our culture thinks and our mindset, I feel like I am lying when I say I am engaged because I do not have a ring.
But my mom didn't get an engagement ring. His mom didn't get an engagement ring. So it is not like I am the one freak in the world who hasn't gotten the ring. And I know I am not lying because we even discussed registry and guest list over dinner last night.
So to my blogger friends....I cannot show you a picture of the ring but I can say...
I am getting married!!
