And now for the big news! This weekend at Animazement, Jeremy pulled off the most amazing proposal ever. I had made us both costumes from Beauty and the Beast, and all of my closest friends had also gotten all dressed up as princesses and we were going to do a photoshoot at the con on saturday. He and I arrived late (as per usual) and it was the most wonderful surprise! He led me down a stone staircase into a courtyard where all of our friends and family were waiting, and we went to the center of our group of friends that were all lined up in their Disney costumes, and music began to play. He had gotten his father, cousin, and two of his closest friends to play the song that we first danced to… and then he sang the entire song and danced with me. The entire time I was seeing people in the crowd from both of our families, and when I saw my grandmother there, I realized exactly what was happening, and began to tear up. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him, but instead of a ring, as per modern tradition, he proposed with his great grandmother’s thimble. Before rings were common for proposals, people would exchange thimbles as a toke of their love and devotion, and it seemed most appropriate in this particular instance. So we are going to get to pick out a ring together! I am most definitely the happiest woman in the entire world!!!
