The proposal was very sweet and a surprise! It happened the day before Thanksgiving but I didn't want to post anything about this until I had a chance to let people know in person as much as possible. But now Mark is wondering why I haven't posted anything about it a month later. So here's the post because he wanted it. We're thrilled to finally be getting married. The ring is a peridot gem with diamonds on the side...sounds like something to eat for lunch!
Some people have asked me why it's not a diamond and the simple answer is because I didn't want a diamond. The only way I would've considered a diamond if it were a conflict-free diamond or a CZ but it's nearly impossible to know if the stone is truly conflict-free even with the certification. Anyway, I preferred color to a diamond anyway. My favorite color is green and the peridot is the right shade of green. It looks fresh, alive and it reminds me of new growth in spring that I hope our marriage will be for us.
