Yesterday we got the call that my ring had come in – it was all I could do not to rush out to the jeweler and get it myself. I restrained myself and am so, so glad I did!
I work 3rd shift so I sleep while the kids are at school, get up just before school gets out, take care of homework, get in some face time with the kids, make dinner, clean-up, deal with bedtimes and then grab another quick nap before I head out.
So there I am snoozing away with our dog snoring like a chainsaw beside me when I hear the door to my room creak open. Being a mom, before my eyes were even open – before I even knew who was coming in the room needing something, I said, “What’s wrong?”
“Just that you’re not wearing my ring yet,” said my guy, “But I’m going to fix that right now.”
And he put the gorgeous ring we picked out on Valentine’s on my finger.
I know that my moment is totally not what most girls dream of but it was so perfect for me – waking up to my own prince charming giving me such a gorgous statement of our love was just so amazing. And hey, any man that loves you enough to propose when you’re wearing ducky pajamas, have no make-up on and total bed-head – that’s love!
So, here’s the ring – much better pictures than the first one I posted! I’ll probably post more as I am totally in love with it!
