Even though we're starting to plan our wedding, until now Michael and I have been explaining our engagement as "unofficial." We had a joke, when we bought this house, that the house was in lieu of a ring. However, I'm pleased to say that the engagement is now official - there is a ring involved! :o)
Since I don't think very highly of modern jewelry - "cookie cutter jewelry" I call it, since it all looks the same - I hunted down this vintage set online. The engagement ring has a matching wedding band, and should be pretty easy to find a match for in a men's ring.
Even though we've been talking about getting married for months now... even though we've already started planning the wedding... and even though we'd made the decision to get the ring set together... Michael still got down on one knee and proposed this evening. It was surprisingly emotional, considering the fact that it was hardly a surprise. The funny part: he proposed with the wrong ring, the wedding band! He'll probably be embarrassed when he finds out I told the world, but it was incredibly endearing.
I can't begin to describe how happy and lucky I feel, so I'll let you use your imagination.
