First (one of) photo taken post engagement.
The first question everyone asks when I tell them I’m engaged is “how did you propose?” Well this is kind of anti-climatic, but I think its kind of fitting to both Dem and I because neither of us are much for formality. Basically last Friday night we were watching some television and she asked if we could just talk. I figured well I’ve only seen the second episode of Band of Brothers like 30 times but I guess it can wait until later so that we can talk instead. We then had a little talk about our relationship and marriage (we’ve been talking about it for a couple months now), and at one point Dem basically said she wanted to marry me. I then asked if she just purposed to me, which she said “no…ummm…I guess…sort of.” I then had a few side questions for her before having to sit and think about the situation for a second. During that period I settled in my mind that if I wanted to marry her and she wanted to marry me there was no reason to wait any longer and I looked at her and asked if she would marry me. After a series of “are you serious” I finally said, “Dem F. will you marry me?” and she said “yes.” I then had to explain I didn’t have a ring or anything, but she said it was ok. We then called and woke up our parents to tell them we were engaged and also called our siblings right away. Since then we’ve managed to pick out a ring (which she should have within the week) and decided that we want to get married this year, but beyond that we have no idea.
