And you thought turning 40 was big news....
Will proposed at my birthday party last night. It was one of the best surprises of my life ♥
After lots and lots of wine tasting/sampling/drinking, lots of story telling, and of course lots of laughs and side splitting joking around with friends, he decided the time was right. Thankfully, Laura had my camera and was able to get some pictures for me!
Knowing, I'm more of a non-traditional girl (ha ha) he opted for an Alexandrite center stone with diamonds on the band. He chose the stone and the setting and had it custom made. Alexandrite is my birthstone and it is a color-changing stone that blends blue and red hues beautifully--which is perfect for our Carolina/State house division.
And yes, the proposal was the big news of the night, but that came later in the evening. Earlier in the evening, friends brought wine and we had apps and desserts. It was an evening of a million laughs and I will forever remember this night....despite the abundant amounts of vino!
