A friend of mine had a really cute story. She and her now husband had been separated for an extended time while they were dating. They had arranged for her to come down for a quick visit. When his pastor saw them together he basically told the guy that he would be crazy not to ask her. They went for a walk and he did. She was so excited that she didn’t even think about the ring; suddenly he noticed and said, “we better go shopping and buy you a ring!” They went and picked one out together the same afternoon. 


I’ve always loved that story. So sweet! 


Sorry to be a little off topic, don’t know what brought this to mind. . .

We went shopping around Christmas and found something we both loved. He decided he wanted to get a bigger stone than we had originally thought, but knew he wasn’t quite ready to pull the trigger financially so I had a bit of a wait ahead of me (6 months or less).

Then I got cold feet about the ring so we went to look some more (this was about a month and a half ago or so), and settled on the first one we picked. Phew! So, now I wait! I’m pretty sure it will happen in the next month or so, but definietly on or before our 3rd anniversary in early June. 

Sometimes the anticipation feels like forever, but I know it’s coming, so that helps. I just can’t wait to marry him–and have that gorgeous thing on my finger!

It took about a month just because the ring had to be resized and he was away for three weeks with work. i wanted to pick it up with him. Then we just popped it on my finger! Done.

whatsinaname15:  My Fiance asked my dad to design/make my ring.  I knew because he asked for my parents blessing and I was there (very surprised).  When he asked my dad to make my ring, it was 2 nights before we left for a trip to Jamaica.  Then a week after we came back, my dad and Fiance went to purchase the materials – my dad is a goldsmith so he knew the suppliers and vendors.  Then 2 weeks later, it was complete.  My Fiance, however, kept it for 2 weeks because he had no idea how to present it to me – he wanted to ask me again with the ring.  He proposed again this past Tuesday, on our anniversary and here’s my ring:

In total, I waited 1 month and a half.  LONGEST wait ever!  LOL.
