So lately Morgan and I have been talking about marriage, well really we've always talked about it, but lately it's been more about planning our finances, saving for a house and more fun things... like engagement rings...
Thing is I know he wants to surprise me with a ring. The part of me who loves surprises adores this idea and the other part of me wants to help choose it. I'm a very sentimental person and this for me would be a forever ring. Plus it's not a cheap investment..
I have a folder saved on my computer named 'for your information' which he is well aware of. It's full of white gold antique style engagement rings with little diamonds encrusted around the band. But there's one thing about seeing a picture of a ring and actually seeing it on your own hand - I have really skinny long fingers and don't want to get anything that looks too 'bulky'.
...and the idea of trying on diamonds is kinda thrilling!
My parents were in a furniture shop looking at leather lounges when my dad proposed. Mum sat on the couch to 'try it out' and dad went down on one knee. When she said yes he said lets get a ring. She thought he meant sometime soon. He meant right then and had her sister waiting in a jewelry shop where she knew the owner.
am I being silly here?
I think I try to plan too much, huh!
So what about you ladies? I know the majority of my readers are blissfully wed and each wear a pretty sparkly on her finger. So tell me the story behind your ring, either by leaving a comment or a link to a blog post maybe even with a photo :) Thought these stories might be a little fun to share around :)
ps. he sent me an email with a picture of a pretty ring today, very much the style I like. - this is why we call him 'CM'.
