You may be a bit confused by this title, so if you are see Katie's post explaining bling day.
In short, it's the day he put a ring on it! And this is my first bling day so darn it we're celebrating!
Scene: New Year's eve 2011 at Cameron's cousin Jared's house with all our friends. The clock is just seconds from striking midnight and bringing in 2012. The ball drops, we kiss, I feel him moving his jaw on my shoulder as we hug mouthing words to someone...what? Yeah, it was strange.
Next I know he's stopped hugging me and asks me to grab something (I think it was more sparkling grape juice? I'm addicted to that stuff, no lie) from the closet. I open it and there is a card with my name on it next to an orange rose (my fav). The card listed Cam's New Year's resolution. The very last thing on the card? You guessed it, ask me to be with him forever.
I turned around, tears streaming down my face to see him on bended knee *swoon*.
I said yes, the ring was on my finger and I was in his arms before I knew what was really happening. Confetti and silly string covered us thanks to our awesome friends. It was unforgettable.
|Bawling, as per usual, rose and card in hand|
|Happy, happy, happy! Covered in silly string and confetti|
|Still covered in celebratory silly string, but so happy|
Truth be told, the night was a blur. No I wasn't drinking, but it all happened so fast! I didn't read anything on that card, I didn't hear anything he said when he was on one knee and I don't remember the events that transpired after. All I know is I am so glad it happened, it was with him, my friends were there to celebrate and someone was smart enough to get some shots on their crappy camera phone.
A year later plans are being made and I am ready to marry this man and finally become "Genna Freed" at last!
