Aaaaand so everyone around us probably knew how it went with my story last January. Jeremy had to fly back to France without a flight back here in Manila. Rivers of tears on that few weeks that he was still here. I have fought hard to make him stay, but in the end, I knew I had to let him go.
So yeah, we were trying to make good memories before he left..
January 28, we were supposed to do island hopping in Quezon. Weather did not cooperate as it rained the whole night and the next day, so we went to LPB (Save the Laguna Pitbulls center, an organization under CARA) and decided that we will try to go island hopping on the next day instead.
We went to LPB; walked dogs, stayed and cuddled with them in the dog run where they can go off leash. Jeremy took a dog that hasn't been taken out before (in years) – Collins. He was not aggressive at all, but he jumps out of excitement to be getting out of the cage finally. I was, of course, scared of coming in the dog run with Jeremy, but he insisted that I come in. So I went inside and just stood at the side.
He said that Collins is pretty nice, and so I went near them. Jeremy started saying something like, "I know it's not creative..." and right then, I knew what he was up to.
I was crying after that sentence but I recalled he said something like, "this place, this activity is one of the first things that we loved doing. You have turned into dog person as I have turned into a cat person. And I want to do it here, because this place is very special to us...”
I said yes after the kneeling and the popping of the box and the question.
I am sorry to be telling you this just now.
So, yeah, I'm engaged!
Truth be told – I haven’t thought of how it feels like being engaged, the feeling of stressing over wedding preps and all – NEVER did we talk about it. He knew from the start I am not the marrying kind, the family building kind. That and the fact that we both had different ‘religious views’. But I guess situations directs people to a path they never know they will cross. This is all new to us and we did not know it’d feel this great.
Now, I hope you guys can help me look for a cheap off-white dress that I will wear when plans push through and I will fly to France to get married, and be merry. Or if anyone wants to sponsor it, THANK YOU :-P hahaha
Cheers! Love and light <3
