You Can't Have Me
Posted on November 20, 2016 at 20:03
I'm sorry you all, but as of yesterday, I'm spoken for.
After a relatively long day of helping out at my parents' house with some chores while my father is recovering from surgery, I came home to my girlfriend, and on an impulse, proposed to her. My dad had asked me something that resonated for a while: "can you imagine life without her?" I answered with "yeah, it'd suck." So, that was all I needed, I guess.
I haven't gotten a ring yet, we're going to go looking for one for her later this week. Wanted to go today, but turns out pretty much every jewelry store is closed on Sundays, so we opted to just go out and run some errands, and stop by my favorite local coffee shop for some brunch.
Here's where something really adorable happens. This coffee shop is owned by two sisters, the nicest two people I've ever met. I've been going to this shop regularly for mid-day coffee (near my office) for years, and they've always been so happy and welcoming when me coworkers and I walk in. This morning, I walked in with my (now) fiancee, and told them the news. They were super congratulatory. They took our order and we sat down.
I saw one of the sisters run out of the store for a bit and come back with a bag. Around the same time, we got our food and coffee.
Right as we were finishing up our meal, the two come over to our table and plop down a signed congratulations card. The woman had run out to the store, found a card for us, and come back. They signed it with some kind words, and gave it to us. I cannot think of anyone else so thoughtful as to do that during active shop hours, just because some randos told them they got engaged.
Anyway, just some happy life update stuff. I don't have much else to write about just this second.
