Girl gets a Ring

Girl loves sparkle.
Boy loves Girl.
Boy buys sparkle.
Girl loves boy.
Boy asks will you?
Girl says yes.

I knew a ring was coming.
I knew what I wanted.
I wanted to make it easy on him...
...so I bookmarked it on his computer.
And he got exactly what I wanted :)

The ring.
Ahhhh the ring.
We spent time looking around at rings... we even went to jewelry stores and tried them on. I knew what I wanted. I had lots of opinions. But I didn't know what he wanted to spend, and I didn't want to push just one on him. I didn't want him to feel like he had no say.
But when it came down to it, and I gave him several ideas of what I wanted, he wanted to know which ONE I really wanted. So I narrowed it down. But narrowing it down wasn't enough. He wanted to be sure that I had the ring that I liked the best because, after all, I will be wearing it forever. :)

And so, I showed him the one I really wanted.

And that is what I got!
I adore this ring. It is perfect.
It is sparkly and beautiful and flashy without being over the top.
It is absolutely gorgeous.
I think the most perfect part is the fact that he was so set on making sure I had what I wanted.
It was about me. It was about what I liked... what I wanted.
That beautiful ring will forever be a reminder that he has my best interest in mind.
