I know a secret! I was just talking with my neighbors grandson and he told me that this weekend, on Saturday evening, he’s going to propose to his girlfriend!
He was so sweet about it. I’ve known him since he was a teenager and he’s always seemed to really like me and value my opinion so he was anxious to tell me his upcoming engagement.
He hasn’t purchased an engagement ring yet though. He doesn’t know if his girlfriend will want to pick out her own ring or not. Since I used to work in the jewelry trade I was able to give him the name of a couple of very trust worthy jewelers for him to contact about getting an engagement ring made (for wholesale prices). These guys specialize in certified diamonds and can make custom settings so I think he’ll be in good hands. In fact, if he contacts them today he could possibly have a ring by the weekend if he decides to get a ring before asking his girlfriend to marry him.
Whatever he decides to do I’m happy for him! I just hope that she says yes!
