- Wedding: February 2014
While I didn’t get the holiday proposal I was hoping for, my boyfriend did take me to two different jewlery shops to try on rings!!
The first time was when we were visiting his family over Christmas. We rode our bikes to the little town for milkshakes(he’s obsessed) and then he said, “let’s see if there is a jewlery store” eeeeeeeeeek! So while the jewlery was definitely not my taste, he got my finger size and also started to realize that there is ALOT to learn about diamonds! Later that night, he told his parents that we were starting to look and they were THRILLED. The next day, we took a tour of potential wedding venues 🙂
The second ring expedition was on my birthday. I’ve sort of know for a while what ring I want but I wanted to try it on and make sure it was “the one”. And it is. I really didn’t want to take it off! My boyfriend knows this is THE ring and he says it’s very me and that I have good taste 😉 My sweet boyfriend asked the sales person about buying it out of the case vs ordering one but the ring was 1 size too big and since the band is incredibly delicate, I told him I would really prefer that he orders a new one. I also know he isn’t quite financially ready to purchase it so I’m not even sure why he asked that but I’m not complaining!
I am SO excited about the upcoming engagement but I have to just relax since it could still be some months before it happens. I’ll wait until I recieve the ring before posting a picture but I will say that it’s yellow gold band with a champagne diamond solitare *swoon*
