My "YES!"

We have a tough time keeping secrets from one another, which played out in funny ways leading up to our engagement. I knew when Trevor first met with a jeweler to start designing my engagement ring; I knew when he picked out the stone; I knew when the ring was finished and he hid it somewhere in our apartment.

Two big things we did manage to keep a secret. For Trevor, it was the final design of the ring. And for me, it was a little gift that I had made for him. I like thinking that Trevor's the only guy I know who received some accessories of his own after proposing marriage.

These suckers are a pain to photograph, but here they are: cufflinks with "YES!" engraved on the back. He wears them to work all the time, which I love... a reminder of his own, kind of like this gorgeous ring on my finger.

And he already knows he's getting another set engraved with "I Do" come May.

That is awesome! Bryan had actually mentioned wanting a "mangagement" ring, but I haven't gotten around to getting him one. This is a great idea! Too bad Bryan doesn't wear cufflinks...hmm...

Really cute! I may have to re-think the wedding gift and get cufflinks when I "propose"!
