I’m having a hard time concentrating at work today (probably because I’m staring at my gorgeous e-ring) so I decided to share my engagement story, and of course a picture of my ring 😉
My boyfriend and I had been dating for just under a year, but we knew immediately that we had a special connection and hit it off right from the start. We actually moved in together after only four months, which is crazy! But I figured that I might as well take a chance and the worst thing that could happen is that it wouldn’t work out.
Last month was my birthday and my boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway in Monterey, CA. He knows that I stress out about work and often need mini-vacations to clear my head and find balance, so I didn’t really think anything of it. He took me to a gorgeous bed and breakfast. We had amazing food and just enjoyed spending time together and away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
On our last night, we took a walk to the beach. The sun was just beginning to set and we sat together on the rocks. He told me everything that I ever wanted to hear and when he started to get choked up, I realized what he was doing. He then got down on one knee (even on the rocks!) and opened this beautiful jewelry box and asked me if I would spend the rest of my life with him. Of course I said yes! He is the perfect complement to me. I am silly, quirky, outgoing, and he is calming, dependable, and supportive.
And now for the bling! Please ignore the fact that this was taken on my mostly broken iPhone (the new one is in the mail). He custom designed it with a jeweler at DeBebians.com and it features my favorite diamond cut, the emerald cut diamond! I also LOVE rose gold, and I am so happy that he was able to incorporate it into my ring. What do you think? Is he the best of what?!

Obviously their professional photos are much nicer than mine. But either way, I am totally in love with my e-ring. I think my fiance did a great job! I can’t wait to choose my wedding ring, & I am sure I will be asking all of my fellow bees for assistance with that decision 😉
