… WE’RE ENGAGED!
Even though I was 99% sure it was coming on Saturday, it still surprised the crap out of me. I had two lifelong friends in from Wisconsin so we decided to go to downtown Chicago for a bit of tourist activity and decided to hit up the Shedd Aquarium. After walking around for what seemed like forever, I figured, eh, this isn’t it. That’s okay. I was taking pictures of the awesome fish when he got down to tie his shoe. Or I thought he was tying his shoe! He said to me “LiliKitty, will you hold something for me?” I actually took a half step back like “Holy shenanigans, this is it isn’t it” and gave my friends a look (WHO VIDEOED IT!). He asked “Will you marry me?” and according to my friends, I said “Of course!”
Obligatory ring picture – I only have one online and it’s not one on my hand. Sorry!
It’s a .7 ideal cut, IF, I color round on a trio micropave platinum band from Blue Nile. The sparkle from both the stone and the band seem to be impossible to capture on picture, but Fiance (!!!!) managed to get this picture on his phone. The stone looks a bit dark and blue thanks to some fluorescence, but it is most definitely bright white to the eye!
