I'm engaged!!! I'm typing these words and I still can't believe this is true. It's not like it happened yesterday, it was already two weeks ago, but my excitement hasn't gone down by a bit. I've been busy these couple of weeks sharing the news with my family and best friends and, I must confess, I was really looking forward to share these HUGE news on my blog!
It was Sunday afternoon and we were getting ready to attend J's cousin's wedding. He was ready and waiting for me in the living room while I was still finishing my makeup in the room. When I finally step out of the room, saying that I was ready to go, he suddendly held me very tight (nothing weird until this point because he does so very often), and then... He got down on one knee!!!! I genuinely thought he was kidding because it came totally unexpected and we were already late for his cousin's wedding. So I just said: You're kidding, right? Well, he certainly wasn't!!! He pulled out a dark red velvet box from his pocket, opened it and asked me to marry him. I couldn't believe my eyes, nor my ears, nor anything, everything seemed so surreal! I was so in shock I couldn't even take a good look at the diamond ring in the box, I just new it was big and shiny. I started saying: Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God!!!! My brain was having trouble processing all the information, and I was getting all emotional. I finally said: Yes, yes, yes! And just like that threw myself at his arms. Then both of us stood up and, shaking, he took my left hand and slid the engagement diamond ring on my ring finger. I could tell he was really nervous, and so was I! Tears of happiness came down like a cascade and ruined the makeup I had prepared for the wedding we were attending. But I didn't care, at that moment there was no one in this world other than J and I. It was all about us, a moment filled with love that we shall never forget, for it signifies a deep promise from the bottom of our hearts: that of marrying and therefore being together for the rest of our life.
