He asked... I said yes!

I have an exciting story to share with you today!  I am engaged!

Two weekends ago the love of my life got down on one knee and proposed. It was just like I imagined it would be, magical, mushy, and a huge surprise, just like in the movies… I got so caught up in the moment that I almost forgot to yes!  

The proposal

It all begun as an ordinary Saturday. I went to a morning yoga class and Galen was off to the golf course (he is a par golfer). We had plans with friends that night so early evening we were getting ready to leave.

I just finished getting dressed when Galen said our Uber had arrived. I came downstairs and noticed through the window that it wasn’t a regular uber… it was a white limo!  

Galen seemed both excited and a little nervous at my surprise seeing the limo. He begun by telling me that tonight was going to be a celebration for the two of us. He then got down on one knee and looked into my eyes that were beginning to fill with tears. At that point I knew what was coming.

From there, it was a whirlwind in my head. I remember him saying beautiful things (“I love, you, you make me happy, I want to marry you, I want to spend the rest of my life with you”) but the finer details are blurred.

The ring

He was holding a beautiful blue box that I knew to be from BIRKS. He opened it and I saw a beautiful silver case holding a ring with a sparkly large diamond. He reached for my hand and I said yes, yes, yes. I love the ring. It’s a princess cut solitaire diamond, part of the Birks Bloom collection. The elegant simplicity of the ring is what makes it so beautiful. They say that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and this ring embodies this sentiment. The band is 18 kt white gold, letting the beautiful Birks diamond take center stage. Everyone says once you are engaged you can’t help but stare at your ring on your finger and it is so true. It’s my new favorite accessory.

"For a bond that flourishes, a romance that blossoms and a love that grows – discover the Birks Bloom collection. A selection of beautiful engagement rings offering the Birks Diamond quality, at a price you have only ever dreamed of."

Excited, emotional and truly happy we got into the limo to go and celebrate with friends. My mind was racing with thoughts and I was texting my family as I heard the pop of a champagne bottle and soon, with a glass of champagne in hand we enjoyed a moment to ourselves in the back seat of the limo, reminiscing about the adventures we have had and thinking about our future life together.

Now the fun begins. What does the future hold for us?
