This past weekend Mr. Sword and I celebrated our six-month engagiversary, for one simple reason: we remembered it. (who remembers their six-month engagiversary?!?!)
We were out on a dinner cruise and the waiter asked us if we were celebrating anything special (we were not), but after he left it dawned on me, it was the 19th of August, six months ago to the day was when Mr. Sword took me to the top of the John Hancock and proposed! So we celebrated.
The dinner cruise was on a ship called the Odyssey that takes off from Navy Pier. Boss lady had bid on it at a silent auction and then gifted it to Mr. Sword and I. Man, were we grateful!! Tickets for the three-course meal, live band, and amazing view are a bit on the pricey side but the only thing we had to buy were our drinks and gratuity. We ended up splitting a bottle of red wine and celebrating our engagement basking in the evening glow of our favorite city. It was the most perfect date night. Seriously, if you ever go to Chicago and have the time/money to go on a dinner cruise, do it! One of my favorite things about Chicago is the skyline, and it’s absolutely gorgeous at sunset on a boat.
Dear Mr. Sword, I love you so much! You have been such a wonderful fiancé for the past few months and I’m so lucky to have such a helpful and smart groom-to-be. Another half a year to go til we say I do! This journey has been one of the best I’ve ever taken. You’re my most favorite tall skinny Scottish man ever! 🙂 Muah!
Has anyone celebrated their engagiversary at the half-way mark or at a year? Anyone else remember last-minute like us?
