Bite your tongue

I was showing off my beautiful ring at the hair salon earlier this week and started talking about all the ugly rings that are out there. (Matt and I saw the official worst-ever engagement ring. It was hideous. It was thick, black and reminded me of a crow...not a good thing for an engagement ring in my opinion.)

But I guess, to each their own, right? ...I still kind of wish they just wouldn't produce ugly jewelry. Like heart-shaped diamonds. I'm just against them. I almost shared my disgust for heart-shaped stones to the two girls at the jewelry store but decided I better not...just in case one of them loved hearts. Good thing I did. The next thing the one girl said was that she and her boyfriend designed her engagement ring themselves with a heart-shaped star sapphire. Ew. She doesn't have the ring yet so I couldn't see in person how ugly it is, but I'm guessing it’s bad (not as bad as the crow ring, but bad).

After 4.5 months of blissful dating, Matt got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him. I squeeled "Absolutely!!!" We embraced in the best hug either one of us has ever experienced. After a few minutes of hugging, Matt pointed out that I had shoved the ring out of the way without even taking a glance at it. I kept my tight grasp on Matt, saying that the ring wasn't my concern--marrying him was!

I finally let Matt reveal the ring and slide it on my finger. It's no wonder he wanted me to look at the ring, its absolutely beautiful. I love glancing down at my hand and seeing that shiny reminder that Matt and I will tie the knot in the somewhat-near future.
