Wanna see my Christmas gift?!
Well, actually, it was NOT a Christmas gift.
But, it counted for a Christmas gift anyhow...
I am now sportin' on my left hand this beautiful ring! Who would have thought, that after almost 8 years together (almost 7 living here) Bill would have changed his mind! I was pretty sure that being married didn't matter to me... but I do admit that at play groups and story hours I often find myself looking at other women's hands...
Christmas Eve, as we were getting ready for Santa Bill paused the TV and wandered out of the room. He came back with a box, and pretty quickly I surmised what might be in there... "I didn't want this to be a Christmas gift" he said. "It's much more than that"
I opened the box, and stammered something about it being beautiful and thank you, and such... and then he did have to say "Yes, It's an engagement ring!" I wasn't going to assume, but it sure did look that way to me. So, it may be another 8ish years until it finally happens, but for now... I'll just wear the ring!
(for those who care about these things- it's a 3/4 carat marquis cut, yellow diamond set in yellow gold)
and, what is it about getting a new ring that suddenly makes you knuckles fat and hairy?!
