Congratulations! My ring is also a family stone, though the setting is different. It is the diamond that both my grandmother and my mother wore. One day I'll give it to one of my children!

I found your blog via The Other Side of Gray and I love it!

I was pregnant and super big! Ive told him i didnt want to get married because, i was preggo, but my hubby kept on telling me that it didnt matter to him, (pregnancy was planned :) ) he wanted to be married to me ASAP, so one day he just got on his knees , kissed my big belly and asked me to marry him :) we are married thru court (with God's Blessing), but one day soon we will have a small weeding. Am soo happy for you girl! Congrats ! God bless!

Carried Away said...

Congratulations Vanessa!! I've been reading through a few of your posts, that's really lovely news. I love your style and your blog - I'm your newest follower on GFC and Bloglovin!

(I actually proposed to my husband. No frills, just asked him on a walk down by the beach... it was planned though! He said yes, which totally surprised me so then I burst into tears. Happy memories :))))

Congrats to you both!! So sweet and the fact that he used the same ring is the sweetest thing!! We got engaged in NYC at the Bubble Lounge. Champagne and NYC are two of my all time faves so he mixed both and totally surprised me.
