Nev and I had been dating for only a few months when we started discussing marriage and even kids. We knew that we had something special and what it would lead to.
Nev asked what type of rings I liked and I googled a few for him to have a look at. Then one day we were in the main shopping mall in my town when he suggests that we have a look at a jewellers. We were browsing the diamond rings when I spot the most perfect ring I've ever seen. It's so simple and understated yet stunning and elegant in it's simplicity. The jeweller is letting me examine the ring when Nev finds one that he prefers. The jeweller looks at the ring that Nev is pointing to, looks back to the ring I'm holding and laughs. We'd both picked the exact same ring!!! Though I must add, Nev had picked the better colour diamond.
Nev paid for the ring then and there and we waited for it to arrive.
It arrived a few weeks later but Nev said that he wanted to ask my dad's permission first and then propose to me when he was ready.
I waited impatiently :)
Our six month anniversary was getting close and Nev and I decided to celebrate by going to the best restaurant in town. I have a hunch that our anniversary might be 'E-day' but I try not to get my hopes up.
The morning of our 6 month anniversary I'm woken up by Nev shaking my shoulder at 6am. Once both my eyes are open Nev get's down on one knee and my eyes nearly pop out of my head! He asks me if I would do him the 'ultimate' honour and become his wife. Everyone now knows my answer.
