Before Mr. Spring Roll proposed to me, I would browse engagement rings and dream of his proposal. I dreamt of some neat proposals, such as him getting a tattoo reading “will you marry me?”, and of our Shih Tzu having a ring attached to her collar. Okay, but back to browsing. I found the most gorgeous engagement ring ever. It was simple, elegant, and brilliant.
If you haven’t guessed by now, it was the Tiffany setting from Tiffany and Company. I immediately showed it to Mr. Spring Roll and asked him to bookmark the page. I never imagined I would get my dream ring. Then, on May 1, 2008, during our last dinner on a Bahamian cruise, Mr. Spring Roll had our waiter place a light blue box tied with a white ribbon next to me. There it was, right next to me, the ring I had dreamt of receiving. Unfortunately, Tiffany and Company has a standard ring size of 6. Before I even got to wear my ring for a day, I had to ship it away to New York to get downsized. What felt like a year later (but truly only two weeks), my ring was back. Although I’ve had my ring for several months, I still catch myself staring at my hand.
My ring came with a diploma, how cute is that?
Was your engagement ring your dream ring?
