I'm still floating

Thank you to everyone that has left me a congratulations, this is truly a wonderful time for me. I do keep pinching myself and looking down at my finger to see if it's really true. And this what i see. Ben really did get it right with this gorgeous ring, i don't think i ever shown him any rings that i liked, i just know i told him once when watching Don't Tell The Bride program (did anyone ever see that? wow bridzlers or what!), the sort of thing I'd dream of getting one day. Something old, just one small diamond set in a gold band. I like things elegant not huge and tacky. And look there it is lol
Ben told me that when he had decided to ask me, he went to one shop and there it was the only one there, waiting for him to go in and get it, bring it home and put it on my finger. Like it was just meant to be.
Perfect in ever way, god stop me if i go on but i thought with all the rubbish going on in the world right now, I'd share and send a little of our happiness. Hope you don't mind.
I just want to tell the world and shout it from the roof tops, how in love I am with the kindest, sweetest, caring and loving fella ever, (well in my eyes anyway). And how he's made me the happiest, smiliest person alive. xxx
To have & to hold, love you Benjamin Short forever x

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, I'll catch up on the 2 just gone over this week, we've had Dicken's fairs, Christmas fetes and parties galore and all with a flaming cold in tow lol but hey I'm a woman and it's takes more than a cold to stop me lol (right girls?).

Many hugs,

Catherine x

Oh it's really beautiful. I totally agree with you about things being elegant. I also have really tiny hands and fingers and didn't want anything large and tacky. Mine is a really simple small band of diamonds which is just right for my mini fingers. Yours is just gorgeous. I know how you feel about constantly looking down at it and having to keep pinching yourself. I'm still doing that four months after getting it with my Wedding just 11 weeks away! I look at my ring constantly. Love the way it sparkles in the light. Enjoy all these lovely feelings. And don't worry about going on about it. As you say, there is so much horrid stuff in the World it is lovely to hear such lovely stories. So very happy for you. x
