We haven’t gotten a ring yet. Not for lack of trying, but more for lack of funding. I realized that my grandmother is in an Alzheimer’s care facility and her wedding ring- the ring I’d always hoped to get married with- is sitting at home getting dusty. Recently, I called my father to ask about it… The family is working it out.
If they agree, then at Christmas, my mother will open up a photograph of myself and Daniel holding a banner that says “we’re engaged!” It will be wonderful.
