Happy St. Patrick's Day! Or as I like to call it Happy Day My Husband Didn't Propose to Me! This is the 12th anniversary of the day we officially got engaged or the day he put a ring on my finger. Let's just say that it was in no way romantic. We had already decided to get married, although neither of us can remember that conversation, so the ring was just a formality.
But even so, we all dream of that moment and I'm pretty sure it doesn't include a trip to the mall followed by your man falling sound asleep. Or maybe it does? To each her own.
I am always a little green with envy at the engagement stories of others but then I remember how lucky I am to have such an amazing husband who does thoughtful things like writing and illustrating books for me about how our love grew. This one is from a few years ago but remains as endearing as when he first gave it to me.
This story is oddly accurate.
