So I stood you up after all. However, I think I have a pretty solid excuse. Mike completely caught me by surprise and PROPOSED! Not a typical Thursday evening, to say the least. Out of pure shock and nervousness, I'm afraid we both bumbled the event a little, but it was certainly romantic and true to us, and I must say he did an amazing job with the ring. It's exactly what I wanted and I'm over the moon in love with it! I can't stop looking at it, which I've discovered can be quite dangerous when driving a car or cutting fabric. Ha! Despite many people trying to convince us otherwise, buying antique was important to both of us, and I'm so glad Mike refused to give up the search. It feels like he found a hidden treasure that was meant just for me. I suppose that makes him a cross between a knight in shining armour and a pirate. Regardless, I'm one lucky lady!
