Well…I’m engaged! It happended 2/21/13 on my FI birthday.
It happened after a day of skiing/snowboarding in Galena, IL. We went back to the Irish Cottage (a boutique hotel) and he proposed! We stayed at the Irish Cottage 4 years ago exactly where we first told each other “I love you.” He managed to get the same exact room we stayed in 4 years ago :)) Then we got the spend the whole weekend in Galena doing fun things! It was on his birthday so I really wasn’t expecting it when he got down on one knee and told me he has loved me since the first day he met me and that I was the greatest birthday gift he could ever imagine! So cute and romantic! Just like him!
Now for the REAL reason you clicked on this post….pics of my gorgeous ring!! Trust me…pictures do NOT do it justice!!
