So I'm going a little crazy, because my absolutely gorgeous DK ring is HERE, hidden in the house. I've seen it in person, but I won't be able to try it on until he proposes. Since we custom designed it, we wanted to keep that part a surprise and something special for the proposal. Sounds good in practice, but it's absolute torture!!

I know he's going to propose before the end of June. We have a few trips coming up, but my guess is he's waiting for our 3 year anniversary on June 1 or a trip we have planned on May 1.

Anyways, I can't tell any friends or family about it, so I just wanted to share here. I don't have any pics of it in person unfortunately, but here's DK's instagram video:

And I must say it looks so different and phenomenal in person!

I'm just so excited to be engaged to my best friend and favorite person. I've had a few long term relationships before, and I honestly didn't know it was possible to find a love like this. It's cheesy, but I can't wait to share and start planning the rest of our future.

I'm happy to stay patient, we're probably going to do a 2021 wedding to avoid conflict with his siblings 2020 wedding, so there's really no rush. But WOW is it difficult knowing that the ring is here!

I don't really have a question, just wanted to share! I'll take bets on when you guys think he'll propose, haha. And any advice on what to do while waiting!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that ring ! I actually wanted that same one, but my bf wanted a pave so we compromised. I'm also in waiting and it is just the hardest thing !!! I feel you ! Gotta keep ourselves busy :razz:

I have an inkling it’s going to happen on a trip this weekend, he just got a haircut and it's confirming my suspicions ;-)

I don't want to say anything to friends/family in case I jinx it, so I'm just keeping in how crazy excited I am for this trip! Just did my nails in anticipation, wish me luck!!

He proposed in the Peekaboo and Spooky Slot canyons in Utah! The hike was absolutely incredible, it was a like half hiking and half climbing/crawling through the narrow canyons.

I'm a rock climber, I broke both of my ankles about 3 years ago and have been going through a few hard surgeries this year to get the internal hardware removed. I haven't healed enough to go full climbing yet again, but I absolutely LOVE it. So this hike I was literally bouncing off the walls excited, it was a really unique experience.

Great piece of jewellery and I am sure every-time you look at it, you remember about how it was custom designed with something of your own touch....
