I’ve sort of been sitting on this tidbit for a few weeks now and I’ve been DYING to share it, but it only just became official!
Coding God and I are engaged!!
Some of you may know that my boyfriend Coding God and I wanted to get married, but we thought my parents wouldn’t approve of us getting married so young. Finally, over Christmas, I was able to have a sit down with my parents, talk things out, and they sort of gave Coding God and I their blessing! So after that point, we were kind of unofficially engaged. Since I was in California and he was in England, I didn’t have a ring yet, but we considered ourselves engaged since we’d decided to get married. But I decided not to tell anyone until I actually got a ring!
But over the next two weeks or so, the wedding planning got started! We sort of settled on a summer or fall 2014 wedding, my mom and I went through bridal magazines, and we even went wedding dress shopping! (And yes, I did order a dress! OMG!) Since we want a wedding sometime in summer (or early fall) and dresses usually take 6 months to get, we felt like we had to get one before I left to go back to England.
So then fast forward like two weeks and it’s time for me to head back to England. As soon as I landed, Coding God took the train into London and whisked me away to the diamond district. We picked out a gorgeous ring together and declared it official! The ring is actually really different from what I thought I wanted originally (I thought I loved the three stone rings), but I completely fell in love with this one. It’s simple, but it’s so gorgeous and sparkly! And I swear it was like fate because the ring fit perfectly and I didn’t have to get it resized at all (unlike the other 4 I tried on, which were all too small)!
Everything feels like it’s happening so quickly, but in the best way possible! All within two weeks I got unofficially engaged, ordered a wedding dress, then got *officially* engaged. We’re both so happy and so excited! 😀 I just had to share!
Also a massive congrats to Jessi from Novel Heartbeat who also just got engaged! 😀
