We have been together for seven years now, and of course I was hoping it would come soon! January 7, 2013 was our six-year anniversary. We went out to dinner, had a great night, but no ring or surprise. The next day all my co-workers were shocked it didn’t happen. Later that night I got home and Joe cooked me dinner and we decided to watch a movie. Before the movie he popped the question and completely surprised me. He took out some champagne and we celebrated. Now we’re looking forward to our destination wedding!
