Considering we met in high school, we had talked about engagement, we went ring shopping one time for ideas, and I was sooooo ready for it to happen! On the last weekend in June, Chris surprised me and came to Philly from Texas (where he was stationed) early. He took me to a really romantic resort in the Poconos and we had such a great weekend! The second night there, I thought for sure that he was going to propose. We had a nice dinner and went to a great comedy show. Afterwards, we walked back to the room. It was such a beautiful night and I was just waiting for him to stop and get down on one knee.......he didn't! I was a little upset and disappointed and figured it was just another weekend without a proposal :( When we got back to my place in Philly on Sunday, he told me that we had dinner reservations. He took me to the restaurant in the Country Club where we had our first date. After dinner, we walked around to a gazebo and that is where he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!!
This is my ring! I can't take any credit because I gave him some ideas, but he was the one who chose this ring! It's a tacori setting and cushion cut stone (which I had never heard of before getting mine) ....I just wish I had prettier fingers..haha
