Being together for over four years has given us lots of time to think/obsess/discuss marriage. We talked about getting married after college graduation, but the first time we seriously discussed marriage was while on vacation in Vieques.
Now, lets take a break to drool over Vieques beach scenes…
…and I’m back.
I had planned a getaway for us at this small island off the coast of PR as last year’s Christmas present for Mr. Boa. So here we are on a gorgeous white beach…and I start babbling about the wonderful Eurotrip I wanted to take after graduation. You could say my mister was less than amused by this idea; he stated that he wanted our first trip to Europe to be our honeymoon. So the conversation shifted toward “let’s seriously talk about marriage” territory and happily ended by taking out an iPhone to select a date on the calendar. We left Vieques after a wonderful week in a rosy love bubble with May 19, 2012 as our wedding date. Then reality hit—I was ecstatic about having a concrete future planned with the love of my life, but I felt kind of in limbo. Was I engaged or wasn’t I?
