I can’t believe I’m saying this, but we’re engaged!
I cam home from work on Thursday to find him sitting on the couch, watching TV fully dressed. Since he had worked 8 days in a row (10+) hour shifts, I had figured it would be a pyjama day, so I said, “Oh, you’re dressed!”
He says, “I found a piece of your jewelry today.” I had been missing my favorite necklace for some time, so I asked, “The key necklace? Oh my gosh, where did you find it?”
He said, “Under the bed!” and I reply, “No way! I looked there a million times!” And he walks into the bedroom, I assume to show me exactly where he found it, so I follow.
On the hutch on my side of the bed, there is a little note that says, “Yay! Key necklace!” on the rolltop door. So I open it, and inside there is no necklace. Instead, I see a ring in a box surrounded by red rose and purple tulip petals.
I’m mostly just confused or something at this point, so I turn around and he is down on one knee. He gives a little speech about how I am his best friend and he doesn’t want to live without me, and would I do him the honor of being his wife?
It all happened so fast, all I could do was nod and start hugging and kissing him when he stood up. And he slid this beauty on my finger:
Sorry, the picture is enormous! It really doesn’t do the ring justice. There are beautiful small areas of diamonds on the sides that remind me of lace applique.
