I’m sooo excited!! It’s been a few weeks since Andy proposed to me yet I’ve been waiting patiently to get my ring. Well, ok I’ll be honest, I haven’t been patient at all… I’ve actually been waiting very anxiously.
Being the very smart and considerate partner that he is, Andy proposed to me with a beautiful and carefully chosen princess cut diamond, with the intent that we’d go together to pick out the perfect ring.
And although I photograph engagement rings just about every weekend, and I’ve touched more wedding rings than most girls will see in their life; when it came to choosing MY ring that I’d be wearing for the rest of my life, I had NO idea what I wanted. None. not even a clue. And to be honest, I was a little overwhelmed….. I mean, I wasn’t picking out a pair or earrings, or just any piece of jewlery. It’s a ring I’d be wearing every day, forever. That’s a long time.
So when we went to look at rings, I had a really hard time making a decision. We went to jewelers, we looked online, I spoke with a custom goldsmith, I looked in magazines, and nothing really caught my attention.
I saw it…
And I tried it on…
And if fit perfectly, and looked perfect, and was oh-so-perfectly me.
From what I hear, this is exactly what happens when a bride finds the perfect dress (or husband for that matter)…. You just know.
So for the past 2 weeks, I’ve been waiting for the ring to come back from the jeweler, and today I finally get the pleasure of putting it on. Yay!! 🙂
