    That's funny, I put Philadelphia, because I grew up there and that is how I still think of myself, but I currently live with my fiance in Telford (near Quakertown), so I am probably close to you in Montgomery as well! Montgomeryville Mall used to be my home away from home, before I started to save for the wedding...

        Which resort in Ocho Rios did you choose??

        Here is a pic of my ring - it is hard for me to choose the best pic because of course none of them do it justice! It is a yellow diamond and I love it to pieces!

          Chalfont - no way! My parents live there, I lived there for about 4 years. My fiance grew up there as well. Are you familiar with Tony D's the hair salon on 202?

            you have GOT to be kidding me....that was my hairdresser when I was in Chalfont. So I'm guessing your fiance was a West graduate This is getting creepy....I wonder if I know you/him?!

            I LOVE your ring by the way!!!

                      Well as the story goes... Matt and I met on a blind date set up by a lifelong friends mom. I grew up in Philadelphia and my parents moved to the suburbs when I was in my early 20's. Shortly after, my friends mom moved to the same town, and my girlfriend and I moved back to Philly. A few years ago, I came out of an uneventful relationship and was kind of lonely being back in the suburbs with my parents and not knowing anyone. So my friends mom, who had begun going to a family owned salon in the area, kept telling me that her hairdresser was the cutest, nicest guy ever. I told her, no thank you, for months and months. I am not very good at meeting new people and was totally not intersted in a blind date. She is pretty relentless though (thankfully), and after like 6 months or so, I finally agreed and we met and had instant chemsitry. Where I am weak, he is strong and vice versa. He loves talking, I would prefer to observe, etc. So we worked well together from the beginning. We knew after about 5 months of dating that this was it. There are so many weird parts to our story, of how our lives overlapped, but we never knew before. It just reinforces that we were meant to be together. My parents moved in about 7 years ago, less then one mile away from where his parents have lived for 30 years!

                      On our engagement... September is when we started ring shopping and I knew that I wanted a yellow diamond. It didn't take me long to find "the one", but it took verrrry long for the ring to be right. The ring that I wear now is the 3rd one that the jeweler gave to my fiance. He had to keep giving it back to him and I had no idea he was having so much trouble. I thought maybe he was just scared or holding off, cold feet. So finally, on December 20th, after almost 3 months of waiting for the ring, he came home from work and couldn't wait another second. He gave it to me in a chocolate box amongst a bunch of dark chocolate hersey kisses. I couldn't have been happier!

                      Sorry to be so lengthy, but this board seems to like it! I posted another set of pics of my ring below, b/c I seemed to have messed something up when I posted the previous ones and they came thru as links instead of pics.
