Or I might go with this, I really love the leaves in it!
I've always admired my mother's ring, which has three stones on each side of the main diamond, so I wanted something similar. I told FI this, and he picked this one out at Robbins Bros. But it just has a plain simple white gold band. I love it so much!
We met at a mutual friend's party at Yardhouse, a brewery/restaurant in Southern California. It was my last year of college and I just wanted to have fun. We ended up talking to each other over nerdy issues like history and found we had a lot of common perspectives. So one thing led to another and now we're engaged!
For my birthday, Michael took me to a small, secluded beach in Laguna Niguel. Only about 20 people were there, it looked like someone's private beach. He packed a picnic basket with food he just picked up at the deli section in a grocery store, like fried chicken, fries, etc. But it was still a cute idea, especially since he doesn't cook. As we walked along the small strip of sand, we turned a corner and before I knew it, we were by ourselves. We sat down, stared out at the water, and that's when he pulled out a ring and asked me to marry him.
