5 years ago I was still in school, I had no clue which way I wanted to go with my career, no idea what my strengths and my weaknesses were. I had my outline written though, I knew that I wanted to do good for this world. That I wanted to contribute to a better place for our children. I wanted to create awesomeness topped with happiness. Unfortunately the world didn’t have an opening for this position yet. But somehow none of this ever mattered. I thought, it would all work out somehow.
So the only thing I really knew 5 years ago was that I’d be with my better half already. I knew that we’d be close to getting married and that he would be the father of my children. I knew that he would be the best thing that ever happened to me and that we’d have the most awesomest lives together. I also knew that this would be a lot of work but that it would be worth it. And that we would make it work in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I knew that already 5 years ago.
When I met A 2 years ago he told everyone that night that he had met his future wife. He was certain that there was no way possible him and I were not supposed to be together.
A couple days ago A turned to me and he said, “what about getting married in 3 years? February 27, 2014.” You might understand my disbelief and also the state of shock he put me in. I don’t think a proposal is supposed to go like this… is it? What about getting married in a few years from now… what do you want for dinner, chicken or pork? Which tie should I wear, red or green?
When A proposed his idea, he was looking at the trees outside our window, he obviously was waiting for an answer. I didn’t respond though, mainly because what do you respond to a question like this? A looked at me and he took my hand and he started to smile and he then said the words that made me the happiest girl on earth, “Don’t worry, that wasn’t my proposal, I don’t even have a ring for you.”
So no, we did not get engaged that night, we did however make plans for our wedding (plans I will not reveal right now) and yes, we will try our best to get married on February 27, 2014. Mainly so A can start his wedding toast with following words,
