So I’ve been drug Free for almost 5 yrs now. But to get this way I had to cut all ties with everyone. So I am quiet lonely with no one much to share my recent engagement. I’m new to the boards so I’ll give you some back story. I just turned 31 today. I grew up with my fiancé since we were 13yrs old. About 6yrs ago or more we tried dating but within a few mths split due to heavy drug use between us both. Shortly after I got clean. About a few mths into my early recovery the fiance came back into my life, only as a friend and we became best friend’s. This went on 4yrs. Over a yr ago at least (While we were only friends) He asked me to make a pact that if at 33 I was single I would marry him. I said yes (not know he was in love with me, but to afraid to break the friendship and go for more) this past July (very unexpectedly) after finding out his long time feelings for me and realizing he did not just want sex, we got into a serious relationship. We were still getting married by 33! In October it accidentally came out to family and close friends we were engaged. He wanted to keep it quite though (secrete really between he and I only) until he got me a ring. Fast forward to April this year, so on Easter Morning my fiance didn’t have to leave for work right away early in the morning, so after he watched my son find his Easter basket I was making him breakfast, while cooking his bacon he places a little black box On the counter next to me. (I’m thinking he got a little charm or something like that for me from my son. I asked oh booboo where’d that come from. He answered really cutely (Cute to me at least) oh the Easter Bunny pooped it out in a Easter egg and left it for you. So I wanted to finish cooking before opening it (Bacon grease) and be able to sit in the living room next to him and with my son and mother when and to open it, but he got a little upset and impatient thinking I guess I just wasn’t interestedIn my gift, it wasn’t important or I didn’t want to open it? Idk all were untrue and wrong so he came back in with my mother picked it up and opened it. To my surprise it was my ring I didn’t expect for a few more months. Especially because the day before while at a store across the street from my jeweler he tried getting me to go in and visit it. Onsite knowing it wasn’t there he had it a week already, but I declined ruining that. So later that evening after he returned from work, while asking if I was excited/happy he tells me about how he tried including my son in the proposal but he just wanted no part in it. Worried I later asked my son about it whole alone in his room for bedtime. He (4 a 2nd time that day) shockingly, happily surprised me with his reasoning and reply. He explained “Mommy, I told him no I didn’t want to give you the ring myself because he’s the one who wants to marry you, so he is supposed to give you the ring himself.” I couldn’t believe this child knew exactly how it works and what it means. It wasn’t that he was being complicated or unwilling, he just wanted everything to be done the right way. Sorry this is so long, but I’ve had no one other then a little family (who doesn’t really care about anyone other then their rich selfish selves) to share with. I’m excited, but I know not close to what I should feel. I think it’s the lack of people to share with and get support from. I’ll share mine it will be pick heavy (I’ve seen that’s good, enjoy the ring porn as you put it Lol) and please feel free to join and share yours. Thank you for allowing me to share.
My original ring box.
Inside the more favorite box on its princess pillow
Oh how she sparkles
Up close the morning I got it, as you see I’m in PJs still Lol
Side profile because photos do no justice to show height and such
This shows the horseshoe upon which she sits
Good inside lighting
Direct light inside my car
Finally this one gives you a realistic idea of how it actually appears in size on me. I h hope you think it’s as great a story and ring as I do. Be kind to me ladies and please share your stories and pretty rings.
