Valentine’s Day has never been my favorite holiday but over the past several years I have had a few not so great Valentine’s. I had a guy I had been dating break up with me after I cooked him dinner and we watched a movie. I got my wisdom teeth out a few days before (which actually wasn’t too bad because I was single and on drugs). Last year, the guy I was dating told me on Valentine’s Day that he was thinking about getting back together with his ex. So suffice to say, it’s a holiday that I don’t care for too much.
He knew that I’ve had bad Valentine’s Days’ and since this was our first together, made extra effort. We went to dinner two days after the official day because I had practice and couldn’t miss since we had a game that weekend. He had made reservations at this new Italian restaurant we’ve been meaning to try http://vetro1925.com/. I had an inkling the week before that he might be proposing soon and I over-thought it in excruciating detail prior to us going out for dinner but somehow I forgot all of that and was just enjoying my evening. After dinner, we went for a walk around the square. We were about to head back to the car and he paused and fumbled in his pocket. I was still totally clueless at this point. Then he got down on one knee and proposed.
Though I thought I might be down with eloping, I really don’t know what I was thinking. Of course I’m having a wedding. I’m the only girl of my siblings and first cousins and I don’t think my family would have let me get away with it. And I’ve always wanted a wedding. Not necessarily something big and crazy but an actual wedding where I can share this amazing and wonderful thing that somehow became my life with my family and friends.
Sometimes I wonder how I even got to this place. There were times I never thought I would meet anyone who I could even contemplate marrying and having kids with. Apparently the universe and the stars aligned because I could not even dream up someone who is as perfect for me as he is. We’re kind of ridiculous together. And I enjoy every second of it.
