We planned our own little holiday gift exchange for the Saturday before Christmas, since we knew we’d be busy with each of our families Christmas day..
We set up a whole mock Christmas morning… I (Jamie) made french toast & Steve had the fire going. After opening all our gifts- I was hanging some gift ribbon on the tree… then Steve started fidgeting with it… and then to surprise me, he pulled out 2 ornaments of his back pockets. The ornaments were a “J” & an “S”. Our initials, (and MY initials… which I tend to decorate with on a regular basis). It was a little thing, but I was just so touched. I was talking to Steve, going on and on about how how I love all the little things he does. I had no idea what else was in store!
So, As we hang the ornaments, I keep going on about how Steve always surprises me… when all of the sudden Steve says… “Are you ready for one more surprise” and as he said this- he got down on one knee!
He pulled out a beautiful ring and asked “Will you marry me”… I said, “Are you serious?” and then, “YES!”
The ring was perfect, and we were giddy and enjoyed spreading the good news to all our family & friends.
