- Miss Chicken Wing

- Wedding: September 2012
Every now and again, when life gets routine, and you don’t even realize that you miss the “newness” of your relationship, your significant other does something that makes you snap to attention and take notice of what a great thing you two have.
Such a thing happened to me yesterday, and I just wanted to share with the hive my little reminder of the good stuff. This past Sunday was Mr. Chicken Wing’s and my 6th dating anniversary. (I’m still waiting, and sometimes that’s hard to deal with…other times I’m totally cool with it.) I thought we weren’t going to be exchanging gifts until this weekend, as we have a weekend getaway planned.
So, imagine my surprise when my doorbell rings yesterday and it’s FedEx, and I’m asked to sign for a package that I didn’t order. I saw my mister’s name on the package, so I signed for it. I was told that I should open it, and when I did, I saw the most gorgeous oval stone blue topaz ring. Now, this is not an engagement ring, mind you. It’s part of the set that I will wear on our wedding day – I already have the necklace and earrings, and I was missing the ring and bracelet. Now, I only have one piece left to go.
Some of the questions you may have are 1) why blue topaz? and 2) why did you get it on Tuesday? The answers are simple. 1) Blue topaz is my daddy’s birthstone (he was killed in a car accident when I was 10), so I want to have him walking down the aisle with me somehow. And 2) today is the 15 year anniversary of his death, and Mr. CW wanted me to have a reason to smile today.
Am I a lucky girl or what? And because I know you want to see pictures of the ring (who doesn’t love a little sparkly porn now and then?), I will show you!
It’s days like this when I am reminded that the bottom line for why I’ve stayed this long without being engaged yet is because this man is worth waiting for.
Do you guys have any stories like this, where your SO was just plain thoughtful?
