Why do I tell you this? Because I kind of wish, sometimes, that D would have done some of this without me. ;) As much as I appreciated being part of the selection process (pretty much the whole part of it, actually) and love the ring I ended up with, I might have liked to be surprised a little more than I let on... I just didn't want to wait anymore!
Oh well. :) We have lots of anniversaries for him to surprise me. ;) I'll just try not to hint too heavily that he should!
