- Wedding: September 2013
SO recently took me on a spontaneous visit to some jewelry stores to show him ring styles I like. Full story here.
Anyway, I figured he just wanted to get ideas, and a proposal was still a long way off. And then, Tuesday happened.
A little backstory: SO was engaged once before. She cheated on him, so they broke it off. She gave the ring back. He has kept it in its box in his “man” drawer in our bedroom. He had decided that, once he met a woman he wanted to marry, he would sell his ex’s ring to pay for the new ring. So he will occasionally joke to me that when her ring disappears from the drawer, the time is near.
Well, our ring shopping adventure was Saturday. On Tuesday, I was getting ready for work and couldn’t find a necklace I wanted to wear. SO will occasionally put my jewelry in his man drawer, so I went to look for it in there.
THE OTHER RING WAS GONE!
I have checked every day since, and it has not returned. I am really hoping this means it has been sold or exchanged for MY ring! I keep telling myself that it’s a bit premature to be excited, but I can’t help grinning every time I see that empty space in the drawer! 😀
