We’ll be unveiling the entries over the next little while as we receive them. Here’s lINDSAY’S ENTRY, PROVING THAT GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIt.
I actually proposed to AJ first. He said not at the moment. I had to beat him to the punch… I knew he was going to propose. That made me nervous and scared…I wanted more time for us to be in love before the craziness of a wedding. Growing up I was not that girl who dreamed of my fairy tale wedding when I met my prince. As a kid… I new fairy tales were not real. As an adult…I believe we all get a fairytale of our own.
On Thanksgiving 2011 AJ asked me if I would want to get married, I said YES! The following weekend we went to look at rings. The one I fell in love with was out of our budget. AJ promised me he would buy me that ring. AJ bought me a promise ring that I received at Christmas.
March 6, 2013 AJ got on one knee, made perfect eye contact, and proposed with the my dream engagement ring. It was a pleasant surprise! It was perfect! I was covered in paint from painting our bathroom… the proposal was still romantic. I have not been excited like that ever that I can remember. The best things are worth waiting for…this moment proved that to me. I learned a lesson that day…I may not always get what I want right away…with time and love…all your wants come true. I realized when something is not perfect… does not mean it is not worth waiting for.
