Where is the ring?

Eeee Gads!
Wedding plans can drive a person batty!

We have been engaged for about 6 weeks I'd say. I didn't share this wondeful news with you beautiful people because...well... I didn't want to. I have written a number of witty, cute posts to tell you, but honestly, I was waiting for the ring to simply post a picture of it.

The ring is still not here, and now the thoughts of wedding, marriage and future are so prominent in my thoughts that I could not keep it in any longer. I also didn't want to bore the masses (of all 3 of you) with my banter of wedding joys.

So...The ring was ordered a while ago, to be made custom by Eric's cousin, and Eric will not tell me anything about the progress as I am to be surprised. I know that his cousin is sending him pictures to approve and Eric has asked me to leave this up to him, that he will make sure all is perfect. Perhaps he will do the whole big proposal thing still, or he wants to present it to me in a special way other then me opening a brown paper package I get from the mailman. With me being the emotional control freak that I am... this waiting and not knowing thing is HARD, and is a wonderful opportunity for me to learn some life lessons of letting go control, trust and patience.

(oh you poor people... you don't know what is going to spew forth now that the flood gates have opened) Beware.

We're doomed, aren't we? ;) Looking forward to seeing a ring, though.

I've been a bad bloggy friend by not visiting! But I do want to hear all that you've kept pent up for far-too-long! :-)

Tracy said...

Can't wait to see the ring. And I think you're right about letting go. :)

Congratulations and do keep us informed of how this all unfolds.

Listen, I was totally obsessed about every detail of my wedding. I was by no means a bride-zilla, but I am a detail-oriented person most of the time. I can only imagine what it would have been like if I had had a blog!

But, feel free to tell us anything you want! I love talking about weddings!

Good things are worth the wait they say. I don't know who they are but I guess it must be true. When it does arrive Eric will be really creative in presenting it to you, because he is artistist and sensative. You two make a wonderful match.
