This past week I spent on vacation with my family, long story short it was more of a “stress-cation” then anything else HOWEVER being apart from SO for a whole week which is the longest we’ve ever been apart since we’ve started dating (3years) I was surprised at how well we handled it and yet we still really, really, really missed each other which was a nice feeling as weird as that sounds. Absence makes the heart grow fonder sounds less weird and it closer to what i actually mean Hah! ANyways it led to some late night skype sessions where I sent him my ring size and 3 small pictures which followed with him changing his mind about it being a complete surprised and wanting to look at some with me to get my opinion on!!! eeeeee!!! He even brought it up first and was sending me so many ideas and seeming to be pretty excited about it:) Definitely made up for every second of discomfort on my vacation and since coming home yesterday it’s like we’re in love all over again. Sometimes it seems almost too good to be true LOL
I hope this sparks some other stories from all of you about the cute things your SOs do that make waiting seem possible! :]

Aww! I’m glad he changed his mind about getitng your input! As nice as surprises are, I can’t help but think “what if we could find a nicer ring together?” lol I haven’t talke to my Boyfriend or Best Friend about the kind of ring I like or don’t like, but when we hopefully do have that converstion what I really want to tell him is that I hope he keeps me in mind when getting it (me as in my personality) and that he also thinks about our relationship. For example, and this I think is super weird lol but, I don’t want a plit shank ring because it symbolizes a separation to me, so I want our reltionship to be symbolized by one solid band lol I know this sounds silly, but I have a whole bunch of other things like that about different ring styles lol
Anyways, I’m glad your hearts grew fonder! lol I’m away for half the week for school and I always secretly (and outwardly lol) hope that he misses me while I’m gone. It’s nice when they actually say it out loud lol

Never felt out love, it’s just feels so much deeper and real? If that makes sense, I don’t know but it’s just so exciting of a time, I feel like we share this big secret and soon we’ll be able to share it with the world but for now it’s our little romantic secret, it’s FUN! This is what I had always hopeed waiting would be like, now it’s actually happening! Today I opened my internet browser with him right next to me and it was already on Weddingbee and he saw, I closed it really quick laughed and was like oops and he just said “Gotta get my woman a rock!” :D!!!! I hope this lasts because I’m having a blast!!! We’re having so much fun sharing ring ideas, he’s more of a jewelry fan than I am. I call it his ‘Manery’ (Man Jewelry LOL) but at any rate we each get to show each other ring ideas and get opinions for each other, I can’t wait to see what we each will finally end up choosing for the other! There are an overwhelming amount of options to be sure!
Side question, anyone know of a place that sells cool, unique rings for men?!
