So in my first post I spoke about my allergies and distaste for diamonds. Well ladies I had presented N with a big task for finding my ring and he must really love me because he definitely accomplished it! After the months of talk I finally have my official engagement ring and am now a FIANCE!!!
So I figured something was up when I saw his smirks all day. I just did not know what. Today is our 7 month so I just figured he was remembering how scared and awkward it was at the beginning. It turns out he was just waiting for the perfect moment. This whole time I had been thinking he would be waiting until we went camping next weekend with his family. I guess he figured I would think that so it could really be a surprise when it happened.
After lunch today I laid on the couch trying to work on my homework and job applications. He just kept staring at me with this big grin that should have informed me he was up to something. The next thing I knew he was lounging next to me. I closed my eyes and thought about a siesta. I felt him slip off the ring that I normally wear, which he has done a lot the past few weeks. I really didn't think much about it. I joked as my eyes were closed that I could be his Sleeping Beauty, his Belle, or Jasmine (Aladdin is his favorite so I knew the would like that one). He leaned in, kissed me, and said 'I would rather have you be my wife,'. I smiled and giggled since that has been the talk a lot these days. The next thing I knew he was sitting me up, getting on one knee, and saying "M____ E___ P____ will you do me the extraordinary honor of marrying me?"
I believe that his roommate upstairs must have thought someone was being murdered I screamed so loud! I jumped off the couch and onto N and couldn't stop repeating 'yes'. He has made me the happiest girl in the world! I am proud to say that this girl is off the market and NDL is a very taken man!
So here is a picture of my ring. I love that if one looks closely there are tiny imperfections in my polished pearl. Most people want a flawless ring. I am more than content with this. The pearl had to go through a lot of pressure and years of wear to make it as pretty as it is. In fact I could probably accurately state that it had to go through hell. I can relate to this stone. In the end what makes it beautiful are the imperfections and scars that the pain left. Plus it's entirely unique- just like me!
