Be patient.

So many comments wanting to hear more! It's coming. I'll tide you over with a picture of the ring. The center diamond is Jesse's grandmother's. It's over 100 years old. Jesse got the rest of the ring handmade - it's exactly my style; modern and vintage. I was completely shocked because he didn't even ask me my ring size, my style, or anything. I love things that are intricate and vintage-looking. It's new, but it looks like it could have been straight out of the 1930s. And the main diamond, like I mentioned, is from the 1800s. Even without asking me any questions, he gave me the most perfect ring I didn't even know I wanted. I'm in love with it. It looks pretty as I type...it looks pretty all the time! Don't you think?

  5. Well, holy shit. Congratulations, kids!

    Oh, and give Jesse a sarcastic "thanks" for turning up the pressure on me. You're the 2nd couple-friends of Emily and mine to get engaged in the last 2 weeks. ;)

  9. Where has your blog been all my life? With tags like "fucking gorgeous" (which was going to be my initial comment) and "i would have said yes even if he didn't have a ring," I love you already.

    Oh yah, congrats! :)
