I’ve been dating my sweetheart for 2.5 years now, and about a year ago we did the “this is forever” thing. A few weeks ago, we went and looked at some rings, and then I found out his mom actually wants to give us her (terrifyingly huge, gorgeous) marquise diamond to have set into a more “me” setting. Hers is very ornate, and I’m all about the simple. At first I was alrmed by the idea of such a sentimental and expensive gift, especially as I’d always imagined myself with a smaller, more practical ring so we decided to go try on a few rings of a similar size and shape to see how I felt about it. Needless to say, I can’t stop looking at the damn pictures of that gorgeous ring on my finger. Eek!
I know I’ll be waiting a while longer yet, as he needs to go get the ring from his mom who lives in a different city, take it to the jeweler, wait for the work to be done,netc etc.
We have a bunch of trips and events planned in the next few months, including both of our birthdays and a couple trips to romantic locations. I have a feeling it’ll be towards the end of the summer, but I’ll still be getting the butterflies whenever he bends down to tie his shoe or anything.
I’ve told a few friends and some close family but I’m trying not to make too big of a thing out of it until it actually happens. And yet, here I am reading wedding boards… ha!
Anyway. I just wanted to introduce myself!
