- Wedding: September 2014
Sorry if this ends up being a little long but some background information:Earlier this week I had a pretty serious health scare and ended up in the emergency department. We were there for the majority of the night, running a variety of tests and talking to specialists. Well I was sent home and the hospital provided me with home care for the week and I was put on bed rest. My SO was really worried and really stressed over the whole situation. He’s been taking care of me all week, and last night was the first night I was really able to walk again and get out of the house so he took me for ice cream.
Afterwards we were sitting on our couch and he started getting really emotional saying how he wouldn’t know what to do if something ever happened to me, that I take such good care of him, our home and our fur babies and he never realized just how much I did until this week. He said he was still planning the proposal and wanted it to have a lot of meaning, especially after what just happened but he said that he’d been thinking about it all week and wanted me to try on the ring and make sure that it was exactly what I wanted and that my happiness mattered more than anything. So he gave me the ring and told me to wear it around the house for the night but that I would have to give it back because he still wanted to do a memorable and meaningful proposal. I personally thought what he said ont he couch was perfect but he doesn’t think it was good enough. I wish I had taken a picture of the ring but I thought I would do that after we’re “officially” engaged. I’m going to take this has a sign that the wait is almost over. He’s had the ring since February so I’m pretty excited.
So some ring details: it’s a 1.2 carat brillant round solitare, D colour (it sparkles like crazy) set in a super thin pave band with pave set diamonds up the basket. It has small diamonds set in the four prongs which give it an almost cushion cut look. I’m so excited and can’t wait for when he does propose however he has planned. I personally would have been happy with everything last night because it honestly came from his heart and I’ve always told him that the words matter way more than the ring or the setting and he said the absolute perfect words last night.
