Good morning, unicorn baby! How are you feeling today? Personally, I’m pretty damn happy.
As you might remember, I lost my rings while on holiday in Crete. If you haven’t read the full story and want to, click here.
My husband, little doll-face that he is, worked with the insurance company and our jeweler to get new rings made. I’ve been told repeatedly that the insurance should not have covered me being stupid and bringing engagement rings to the beach - but it did! Highly recommend Jeweler’s Mutual
for anyone buying expensive jewelry or wedding rings. They really came through.
My husband refused to tell me when the rings were coming. He’s extremely romantic and wanted to surprise me by proposing again. On Wednesday night, he was being especially gentle with me. I said I was tired and wanted to take a bath. He made me a bubble bath and sat with me while I soaked.
While doing all my many, many, many post-bath skin things, he started on dinner. He lit candles and set up mood lighting. We ate curry and made out a lot. Then I went to lie the couch.
We were doing our (pretty standard) snuggling and telling each other how much we love each other thing (because we are gross and I don’t care who knows it) - when suddenly he started in on the same speech he gave when he proposed the first time. He said, “I love you so much and can’t live without you.”
He gets on one knee, pulls the rings out and proposes again. It was frickin’ CUTE! My rings are gorgeous and I am so, so happy. It’s really quite wonderful to be married to your best friend. We all deserve love that makes us feel full and happy all of the time.
As sad as I still am about losing my rings, I adore my new ones. They’re extremely SPARKLY and I cannot stop staring at them.
I love you very, very much. I appreciate that you’ve been here through the journey with me. I hope you have the most fabulous week in all the world. I’m sending you all the positive vibes.
This week’s mantras:
- I deserve a love that makes me a better version of myself.
- I don’t need a partner to be whole because I am whole.
- It’s OK to be lonely and to want someone. I deserve to have all the happiness in the world, in whatever way I choose.
