Marvelous is……………

That Alfie LOVED the present I got him for our 6 year celebration! I took a picture of his dad that was taken on his tractor on the lot where we’re currently building and I had it blown up for us to hang in the office once we’re moved it. His father passed away 5 years ago this past week, so that made this even more special. Here’s the picture:

Marvelous IS…………………………..

I said YES!

I know………… I have some ‘splainin to do! Alfie and I have been together 6 years. For the past few we’ve referred to each other as husband and wife because we already feel we’re married, but were waiting until the house is built to “make it official”. Plus, it makes things easier when it comes down to either of us talking to vendors about things for the house. People always just assume we’re married, and believe it or not, they take you more serious if they think you are! (weird I know) We thought it’d be perfect to start our new life in our new home as newlyweds—hence the wait. :-)

He had gotten me a small band years ago to wear as a “temporary stand in” with the understanding that we’d get something nice when we were ready to be official. I just assumed I would see it at the end of the isle. NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS would I have thought he would surprise me the way he did!

Needless to say, I cried so so hard! Happy tears of course!! I’ll do a post on the way he did it later. It truly was perfect!!! I am so fortunate to be in love with my best friend. He is my partner in life. Truly a soul mate. This song is us……….. if one falls behind the other always waits. And we always walk life together:

  4. YAY! I was a little confused when you posted the picture but now I know! (: I love your ring! It is absolutely stunning! Your gift for him is so thoughtful! (: you are just the best!

    • LOL. I know, I feel bad for confusing everyone. Between his roofing company, and working with vendors on the house, and Kenzer’s school events, etc. etc. And as she’s gotten older– it just felt better to us to be referred to as husband and wife. We really didn’t think the house would take this long and thought we would be official by now. So it just felt right. I just expected the diamond to come on our actual wedding day. So I was completely shocked and had to share!

      Yes, he got teary eyed when I gave him the picture. It was so perfect.

      Thank you for the compliment! I try. :-)

  5. Omg, that ring is SO BEAUTIFUL! Congrats!!
