Beach Getaway Turned Semi-Proposal

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?

Any other brides-to-be that had to wait to make it “officially” official?

    Still in limbo here. A lot of people at work know the situation and they tease me calling my SO my FI. Still kind of makes me uncomfortable because we’re not official.
