- Wedding: April 2013 - ceremony at a gazebo outside, reception at neighboring restaurant on a lake
My fiance and I have been together for 3 years and 8 months. He came home from work last night and I ran to greet him like I always do and he hugged and kissed me. Then he reached into his bag and said, “I have a question to ask you. Will you marry me?” I cried my eyes out while saying, “YES”!
He is the love of my life and I am SO excited! I would have said yes about 2 years ago! =) I admire the hell out of him too. He took me ring shopping in February and I decided I wanted an solitaire 0.5 – 0.75 ct emerald cut on a simple white gold band. Then about a month later I secretly went back to a jeweler and tried rings on again. She was awesome and took me outside with the rings to see what they look like in natural light, and doing that I fell in love with a cushion cut. So then I told my boyfriend that I wanted a square or rectangular cushion OR a round (because you can never go wrong with a classic round solitaire!). And he got me exactly 1 CT rectangular cushion, E, very good cut diamond!! (I don’t know the other stats).
I LOVE it! He is crazy busy with presentation he is doing in Ohio next week, working his usual full time job, and working his side job (he will leave in 2 weeks to run a resort up in Wisconsin). So I just went in the office to have him help me take pictures of my ring, he said, “are you here to talk about your ring some more?” (he was smiling – joking with me that that is all I’ve talked about for the last 20 hours). And now he wants me to leave him alone til dinner so he can get his work done. Oops!
Anyways, just excited to share it with all of you bees! I’ve been admiring rings on here for MONTHS and now I have one 12 inches from my face in real life!!! WOO-HOO!
