He shoots...HE SCORES!!

Three points for my loving husband, Ta Ta!
When Mike and I got engaged it was sort of last minutes notice for him. I kinda ruined the surprise because it was Christmas time and we were going home to Texas and I kept pushing and asking questions and he kept hinting and leading me on. I assumed we were getting engaged. His plan was to ask my dad for my hand in marriage then ask me to marry him around my birthday the following April. Well, when I found out his plan I was devastated. Not because he wasn't going to ask me, but because I ruined the surprise. Mike felt aweful. He then conspired with my mom and my sister to speed the process up surprise me at Christmas. The down side of this process was that we could not afford a ring at such short notice. My mom offered the use of her ring, but Mike decided to use his grandmother's ring that had ended up with his sister after she died. It was a beautiful ring, but here was the catch... she wanted it back! I understood, but again I was devastated.
I had never really gotten over the fact that technically I did not have an engagement ring... that was until this Christmas.
Over the past year my husband has been secretly conspiring to get me a ring. He has held on to this ring for the past 4 months waiting to give it to me for Christmas. It is an exact replica of his grandmother's ring! For the first time in our relationship he got me... truly got me. I was so surprised by the ring! I was even more surprised by the fact that he managed to keep it a secret from me for a year!
Thank you... thank you... thank you....
I love you, Michael!
