Ever since meeting and sharing our first kiss on New Year’s Eve under a Blue Moon, Scott has constantly taken my breath away.  He started “building” my engagement ring on my 30th birthday, without my knowledge.  He told me he wanted to get me a promise ring, so we went shopping and I picked out a ring a month before my birthday.

My birthday party was planned at a Wrigleyville rooftop in Chicago…I’m a lifelong Cubs fan and have always wanted to experience the rooftops!  Shortly before our trip to Chicago, he was trying to let me down easy and told me he wasn’t going to get me the ring right now.  While roasting in the hot August sun and trying to enjoy the game, we finally got a moment to sit down together.  He had just opened a bag of Cracker Jacks and asked if I wanted some.  I quickly responded, “I want to find the prize!!”  Just inside the package I discovered a little bag and pulled it out to find my ring!!!!!  I was shocked to say the least.

Four months later, just before Christmas and our first anniversary, he told me that the jeweler had called and wanted to check out my ring because some other customers had been having problems with the prongs.  I reluctantly let my ring go back to the shop.  On New Year’s Eve night he had gone to pick up my ring for me.  When he came home I was anxious to have it back, so he went and got it from the car.  He explained that they had to do some work to it, but it should be good to go now.  I opened the box to find an eternity band had been added to the ring!!!

Scott’s final move in creating the beginning of our lives came at our St. Patrick’s Day party.  Scott had started a new business, a hotdog cart of all things, so we invited family and friends to come over and celebrate the cart being ready to go.  While Scott was “manning the cart”, I was visiting with friends when he tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I wanted a hotdog.  Just as I was about to say “No thank you,” I turned around to see another eternity band sitting on the end of the hotdog!!!  He asked me if I would marry him, and of course I said YES!!!  Now every time I look at my ring I remember those three special occasions and look forward to our future together.
