I have had SUCH a gorgeous day today. I'm still grinning ear to ear about how lucky I am. This is going to be a very self-indulgent post. I don't care, I'm 21 next week, ha!
You might've seen on twitter that the boyf was taking me out for a surprise today... It's been planned for a while yet I had no idea what we were doing or where we were going. I'll be honest, I was a little worried. But I needn't have done. We pulled into the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham (there was me thinking we were going to the Museum) and I was given an all-too generous budget and a free reign to buy something special.
I have never ever had anything as precious or as lovely as this. Nobody has ever spent this much money on me, nor have I ever had jewellery bought for me from Liam. It sounds odd considering we'd been together for 5 years and yet not a bracelet, but I'm never really adorned with precious stones or diamonds, it's not really me. So when he announced this this morning, after I'd recovered and stopped sobbing, I was so excited. And nervous to go shopping, how do you do it?! The number of people who thought we were engaged too, how funny.
My birthday isn't until Friday, but nevertheless, I found this beautiful ring. It's an antique clouded ruby surrounded by silver quartz. The moment I looked in the window I knew I'd get something second hand - I love the idea that something I wear has been loved by someone else, and to think it's a one off makes it even more special. I feel so indescribably lucky. And I still have some money left over in the kitty! Going to make a trip to John Cussell next weekend me thinks.
After this little beauty was purchased we went for coffee and cake and to admire it some more.
Wow. This post has turned into a lot longer than I was expecting, blog meet up will have to wait! I'm still in awe of this overwhelming generosity... :) :) :)
