Our engagement

Last week, on November 6, it was our 9th anniversary of engagement. I was too sick to post this then. I did want to post our engagement story.
Ram came over to my house the night before my birthday. He had one of my friends take me away for about an hour. When I returned he had cooked supper for us. If I remember right, he made pork and steamed broccoli. He had borrowed a few items like a vase for flowers from a seminary couple and gone grocery shopping for the food. He figured out where everything was in my kitchen and cooked. After we ate, he took me in my bedroom. He had put roses on my bed and then he gave me my ring. I love my ring! The engagement ring is one diamond and the wedding ring is three small diamonds. I was so excited that I never really gave Ram a chance to ask the question that night. He got down on his knee and asked me the next week when he had the ring resized. I didn't do much teaching at school the next day because I had to show off my ring to everyone! We managed to keep our engagement a secret for a week until we went to tell my sister in person. Ram left for vicarage a few weeks later so we were apart for a year before our wedding.
I love you Ram, and I'm so glad you asked me to marry you 9 years ago!

Wow! Sweet story. We got engaged right around the same time. Our engagement was Nov 5, 2000. Who knew?

How sweet!

We were engaged on a hike along the Chatahoochee October...15 years ago! We're still hiking, and we still live near rivers!

I love engagement stories! We were engaged on September 7, 1997. (9-7-97 LOL) We were also apart a year before we were married--Dan at Sem and me in St. Paul. Ah, the memories!
