Some BIG News

Last night, B and I celebrated our two year anniversary from the day we met. We celebrate this day because we haven't spent a day apart since.
If you were on Twitter last night, then you already know...
B asked me to marry him and I said yes!!!

Well, according to B, I didn't actually say "yes" for about a minute. I was completely caught off guard and in shock and stared, open mouthed at the ring. B had to prompt me a second time for my answer. He was so nervous.
Below is an awkward photo of me attempting to show off the gorgeous ring. It's taken from a weird angle and it makes me look like a teeny tiny person with a big head.

So, the ring is from the 1920's and it's a family heirloom. I'll be the fourth woman to wear it and I'm honored. We're so excited and very, very happy.
I've been beside myself wanting to share this news with you.
xo,
Christina

Wow! Congrats to you! It seems that i was engaged less than a week after you! My ring is from the late 1920's! How exciting. I hope you post some things about your wedding plans and ideas!

Ashley said...

Hi, just found your blog and look forward to following. I came across this entry and had to comment because i as well have a 1920's family heirloom. I am the 3rd person to wear it! I kinda tweaked mine a bit after i got it but i LOVE the old antique look and feel that heirlooms give. I know it happened months ago, but Congrats to you!
Ashley
