My boyfriend is acting a bit funny.

We have just bought a house together and we''re moving in 4 days and it seems like he''s excited about more than the house. I know from overheard snippets and glances at emails that he and my dad have a secret. And I know he''s been asking our friends for photos of him and I together. And he keeps saying mysterious things, like that he has plans. And he says things about ''our kids'' (we don''t have any kids) and about things we''ll do together when we''re old. And I catch him out of the corner of my eye looking at me a bit lovesick, when he''s normally big and tough and manly.

Thats pretty cool - lots of guys are letting their girls know of their intentions for engagement nowadays (my SO included) And even though you have trails of suspicion its still exciting to see that he''s planning and preparing completely on his own. You seem to have a great SO in your life

Suspicious activity! Love it! Isn''t it fun and exciting! I love knowing just bits and pieces yet knowing I will be completely surprised!

THAT, is honestly, the biggest give-away! I remember the entire MONTH before he proposed, he''d be giving me what I call the ''Look of Love''.

Enjoy the moments, CoralQuiz!

I enjoy that "some other type of love" look just as much
Granted this is coming from a girl who doesnt live with her SO and I''m sure that can change how one feels about sexy eyes, haha.

I''m finding that the best part of packing things up to move house is all the things that I''m NOT packing up to move. I''m entering the next stage of my life and there are so many clothes and books and household items that were important to the old me but my tastes and priorities have changed. I just dropped off two car-boot-loads to the charity store and it''s nice to know that someone else will benefit from all those things and that my new house will be fresh and uncluttered


I thought it would be hard to get rid of things which have a bit of history to them.. but it''s actually a big relief.. letting go of the past kind of thing!

...2 more sleeps!

Yes! So exciting


Sorry about the double post!

It''s actually been a few weeks now, but today was the first time I could bear to take it off my finger to get a photo.

Apparently he''s had it for 6 months now... waiting out other weddings so we didn''t steal thunder... I''m impressed that he thought of that and that he kept it a secret for so long!

Just came back for another look. I really, really
your ring, there''s something about it that is just absolutely striking. I think I particularly love the combination of the sharp-cornered princess and the roundness of the shank.

What are the stats?
