She said “Yes!”

Originally written by Caleb… but commandeered by Livvy (green text)

As soon as 2018 came, I asked Livvy to marry me (finally). Being the clever boyfriend that I am, I made her think we’d be spending our New Year’s together very casually (but also cozily in each other’s arms), just enjoying each other’s company as the clock strikes 12. Being that we were online most of New Year’s Eve together, I literally had to set up my proposal scene right in front of her. Thank goodness for AFK time!  (Livvy here: Yes finally … I have been waiting for this slow day to finally come to a head and happen.  But only because I love him so much, and I feel like queen of the world when he is with me.  Mind you this is our 2nd time dating.  Time was not a good factor on our side and we have grown and learned so much to finally come back to this day and be so incredibly happy!) 

My plan was to have our own fireworks display on our land, which is something we normally do anyway like on the 4th of July. So, again, totally inconspicuous. But what she did not know was, I planned to have my proposal show up written like fireworks in the middle of the lit sky when I was setting off in world fireworks.  (Ohh this is story to be told!)

Throughout the day, I distracted her with shopping adventures and a total season of Stranger Things. I had never seen Stranger Things on Netflix yet and after the first few episodes, I loved it. So we binge watched the entire season that night lol, which worked great with my planned proposal because Livvy would not think anything of it. We were comfy in our sweats, cuddling in front of our camp fire, Netflixing and actually ‘chilling’ like normal people.  (Mind you his Christmas present to me was the gorgeous dress I am wearing below, and it threw me off that I was not to wear this for my Happy New Year fireworks! This made me very curious as to what was going to happen.  And watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things was so totally romantical, because its our thing to watch shows together.  The fact he was so into this one just made me smile the whole time ♥)

When midnight came, I exclaimed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!” And she did the same as I proceeded to set off all the fireworks I had set up earlier. These were a mix between my MadPea Fireworks I had from 2016 as well as my {damani} – Fireworks deLuxe from back in 2014 lol. While we were smiling and celebrating our first New Year together, I turned off the transparency of my written proposal in the sky to let it finally be shown. The proposal said, “Will You Marry Me, Livvy?” in all cool sparklers effect to sort of blend in a bit with the fireworks.  (What he is leaving out here is that I didn’t actually seeee the message at first.  It was a blur in the sky, and I thought I broke my av for a moment so I zoomed in, thinking that I could totally fix it .. but that didn’t happen so I zoomed way out and it came clear what the message was and it confused me a bit because I was so not expecting this.  I hit the escape key and back to my av my camera flew and there was Caleb on one knee!!!!)

Will You Marry Me, Livvy | Mine & Yours

We have been on voice this entire time and when I heard her give notice to the image that was coming in for her, I got down on one knee, waiting for her to finally realize what was happening. I was proposing to her and I started saying the following to her on voice:

Livvy Fhang, I met you in 2014. Started dating you in 2015. We went our separate ways but found each other again in 2017. While together, you have made me an incredibly happy man with you back in my life. Ever since the day our paths crossed again, I’ve been smiling ever since… and incredibly in love with you. 2018 is here and I want us to start our new chapter together. I’ve been waiting for this day – this very day… the first day of the year, as I want to start the new year with you as mine in every way. Livvy… will you do me the honor of letting me be your husband? Will you marry me?

(He totally made a typo in that proposal … but I am not going to share it because it should be perfect the way he wanted … even if he wasn’t nervous, I still say he was, that voice that he loves to think was sooo confident I could hear the slight shake, but shhh, he was all man when asking me everything)

While I was telling her how much she has meant to me and how happy she has made me, I could hear the happiness in her silence as she listened. Yes, her silence has a voice – just like how you can hear someone smile… or choke back feelings of elation… or even tears of happiness. I was beaming the entire time and then as I finished my words, a resounding, “YES!” from her lips. My goodness how happy it made me to hear her say that… and how happy it made me to hear her happiness as well.  (I mean I waited a really long time to get this question from him.  Then again he is so slow with things, always wanting them perfect.  Though we were a bit backwards in how we did this.  Most of our plans were already planned minus the asking part.  Which most couples dont do until asked?  But we arent your average couple, we are us and we know how we tend to work, it was a matter of time before it happened anyways.  And he did it in the most perfect way.  I am just impatient and always will be. How he deals with me and still put a ring on it … amazes me! 

I love this woman so damn much (I love you too, baby). I can’t wait for so much many more moments and memories to share and create together. Happy New Year, indeed! We’re engaged! (And I am not letting go for one moment, you are stuck with me!)
