Exactly thirty-two days ago, I got down on one knee, put an engagement ring on my girlfriend’s finger and asked her if she would marry me. Because I had been in a relationship with my girlfriend for the last two years, I was confident that we could successfully take our relationship to the next level of commitment. As soon as I decided I was going to propose, my level of nervousness shot up a considerable amount (even though I knew this was the right decision). However, I couldn’t just get down on one knee and ask her to marry me; I had to start by getting an engagement ring.
In spite of the fact that I had shopped for jewelry before, those previous experiences didn’t really prepare me for this big one. After lots of searching and thinking about the best ring, I selected an amazing sapphire engagement ring. Once I had secured the sapphire engagement ring that I was going to give my special lady, I setup the plans for my proposal to her.
Even though it is true that shopping for a ring and planning the engagement wasn’t easy, but the night of my proposal is something I will remember forever. I feel so lucky because I not only get to have the memory of proposing to my fiancee in front of the patio fireplace at Fearing’s at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, but also get to spend the rest of my life with the woman I love more than anything. Even though we are still enjoying the simple fact of being engaged, we have started making plans for our wedding, and I think this is an event that is going to turn out incredibly well.
