    Pete and I have a Christmas tradition. Each year we get an ornament engraved that represents that year. We got our yorkie, Pebbles, last year. The ornament we bought was 2 little paws that dangled down. I dropped it off to get engraved, and asked Pete to pick it up. When he pulled the ornament out, the ring was tied to one of the ribbons of the ornament. Now everytime I look at the ornament, I will not only think of our dog, but of the perfect proposal. The funny part is I was laying in bed when he asked, so I couldn't even tell you if he was on one knee or not. He just kept it in his pocket until I asked to see it. He went to get the ring 3 hours before I was supposed to get home from work. They said it wouldn't be resized for a few hours, so he was going to pick it up in a couple days. On the way home, he decided I could take it back to get it resized so he turned around. Then he thought, maybe she won't take it back, so he headed back home again. He finally said screw it, and went back again. Luckily, they had already taken it to get resized. It was done just in time for him to get home just before me. I love that he couldn't wait to ask.
