On Wednesday August 4, 2010 at 11:59pm, while down on the dock watching Perseids, dear boy gave me a ring. yes, THAT kind of ring. Blinded momentarily from the glare of the ipad screen tracking the stars overhead, i couldnt see it and was confused about what he was asking. and then i laughed. as he professed his love and described the incredibly romantic process of making me a ring, i continued to laugh. you know, that sort of hysterical laugh you get when you cant seem to process whats going on around you. good thing he loves me.

He said he wanted me to choose my own engagement ring (apparently Im fussy *cough*), so he made something for me to wear until then. He made the ring himself, with no help or experience, somehow without me noticing. He measured my finger in my sleep with string and worked on it for weeks in the few moments before i got home in the evenings. Not even my mysteriously depleted metal stock clued me in.

Its sterling silver with a copper heart, and has the word "forever" stamped inside the ring. Talk about a surprise Smiley

That is sooo sweet and romantic. Way better than when I forced my husband to ask me by yelling "Damn it! Just say it you xxx!"

It's the best ring ever Smiley
