- Wedding: December 2014
In my previous post I wrote about how I had a feeling that SO would pop the question on during our New Year’s celebration. That entire day I had butterflies in my stomach. I was nervous and excited and scared and thrilled all at the same time. I kept trying to figure out if I was ready, if WE were ready, if it was too soon, and every other possible question that could go through a girl’s mind when she suspects that she’s about to be proposed to. Needless to say that that day I could not concentrate at work. So much that I actually ended up leaving early. Totally not complaining 😉
Anyway, fast forward to when my family arrived at SO’s sister’s house. The house was filled with people and I had this feeling that EVERYONE knew something that I didn’t know especially when I saw SO whispering with my parents. I decided to just leave it be and enjoy myself. Once the clock hit 12am we toasted to the new year and I got my new year’s kiss SO’s sister’s husband said that it was time for gifts (We’re Russian so we give gifts on New Years). He said that the first gift was to be given by SO. That’s when my heart started to race. He went up to get a nicely wrapped box and handed it to me. With shaking hands I opened up the wrapping to find a silver box with a black ribbon tied around it. I opened up that box and saw the little black box inside. My hands were shaking so bad by this point that I asked SO to take the box from me before I dropped it. That was when he got down on one knee and I didn’t even give him enough time to pop the question. I started nodding and hugging and kissing him. He slipped the ring on my finger and just like that we became future Mr. and Mrs.
I could not have asked for a better proposal. My family means everything to me and for them to be present during such an imporant moment in my life meant the world to me. It was truly a beautiful moment that I would relive over and over again. And so without further delay my fellow bees, here is my ring…
It’s a black diamond (1.91ct just the center stone) with the white diamond cusion cut halo and white diamonds on the band. I know that everyone says that the picture doesn’t do their ring justice and it is absolutely true for my ring as well. The picture can’t capture the way that it sparkles so perfectly.
