- Wedding: June 2017
Well, my SO came to visit me up at school this weekend. Very randomly yesterday morning he heaved a huge sigh and said “are you sure you want a ring and not a down payment on a mustang (My fav cars ever)?” I chuckled and told him that I am content with my current ’09 corolla and that in my mind, that’s just “not how these things work.” Then as we were deciding what to do for the day, I suggested jokingly that we should go ring shopping. He laughed, then paused, nodded, and said “that’s a good idea”. Every other time I’ve tried to talk him into it he outright refuses!
So he obligingly went shopping with me for about an hour! I showed him what I liked, he was very attentive (asking to see different versions of the 4 C’s and a few different settings), and we ended up very pleased with what we would call our “favorite” of them all. We walked out of the mall all giddy. We went to Starbucks and he kept holding my hands across the table and rubbing my left ring finger and saying I was “so cute” as we tried on rings together.
He will likely get the ring from a local jeweler, for price and other reasons, but at least he knows what I like! I’m so excited, I know it won’t be by Valentine’s Day but my birthday is in the end of March, and our anniversary is the beginning of June. Hopefully I won’t be waiting much longer than that! Thanks for listening 🙂
