A truly big birthday surprise!

Yesterday was my birthday and my sweetie, Patrick Burns, not only threw me an amazing birthday party, complete with champagne toast and an awesome cake, he popped the BIG question! And, of course, I said "yes!"

I had no idea it was coming...especially when he handed me a glass of champagne and there was something shiny and pretty in the bottom of the bubbles.



And take a look at my gorgeous ring. I seriously cried when I saw it. It's so delicate and special. It's a filigree white gold ring with a diamond...vintage 1928-ish. Sooooo pretty.



My mother asked me if I was on Cloud 9...I think it's more like Cloud 99!

I think 2011 is definitely going to be the best year ever!

Hugs,
Marley = )

Congratulations! I love your ring...my engagement ring isn't the "traditional" solitaire either and it's great because people always exclaim how different the ring is...you can look forward to lots of squealing moments, I'm sure!! :)
