If you aren’t yet aware, I’m getting married.
And the wedding date is 10-12-13. Should be easy enough to remember over the years, right?
This is actually my first full post about the wedding, or any happenings around it, on Fashables, but I thought it might be fun to hear a guys view of the process.
So, for today, I’d like to share my favorite engagement gift to date. That’s certainly not to say that all gifts weren’t appreciated, but this one, it was just fantastic.
The gift in question was a large framed version of what you see below. If you happen to be geographically challenged – no shame – the state on the top is New York, and the one on the bottom is North Carolina. The hearts represent where my fiancee is from in New York, and where I’m from in North Carolina.
If you aren’t getting the warm and fuzzy, let me add a little commentary.
Those two states, they happen to be pretty far apart and there’s tons of people in between, which makes it pretty amazing that we happened to find each other in New York City. [Insert warm and fuzzy feeling]
To be quite frank, I don’t know how you could top this as an engagement gift. Sure there’s money and trips and all that hoo ha, but this is something that hangs on your wall and reminds you just how lucky you are. And that’s awesome.
