Engaged...sort of

So it’s been almost 6 years, and we’re almost 30. There was no romantic set-up leading to our [sort of] engagement. We discussed a few years ago that Cal was ready to get married when he was 30. Let’s back up a bit here…..
Cal and I met (supposedly) at a driver’s ed course when we were 16. I still have no recollection of this. The first time I remember meeting him was at a mutual friend’s party a year later. We kept in touch over the years, and started dating in our 20’s. We dated for about a year and a half, and called it quits. But alas, we got back together 6 months later. We discussed marriage back then, and agreed that we were committed to each other for the long haul. The only hiccup - Cal didn’t want to get married until he was 30…meaning until I was 30 too.
Anyway, we were celebrating our 29th birthdays (our birthdays are within 2 weeks of each other - hence the same driver’s ed course - allegedly), and the “M” word came up again. I was pushing for an answer…or a question I guess, and all I got was an affirmation that we will get married soon.
I let it go at that. After 5 years, I knew when to pick my battles. However, we were at the weekly Sunday family dinner with Cal’s family, and our conversation came up. His family said his re-affirmation of his commitment means that we’re engaged….so here we are a few months later, no ring, and kind of engaged.
My goal for this blog is to detail the details of planning the lead up to the engagement and also the wedding. Along with other things that are going on in my life.
