We got engaged on 19 January 2020. There was a lot of preparations with various people involved. I’m glad that we have a strong support system. However, it is definitely a process I would not want to repeat. The bare minimum would have been perfect.
There’s a lot of pictures of me taken by my brother who took on the photographer role. Dan keeps saying that he loved my makeup and the whole outfit. Unfortunately, we did not manage to take a picture together.
But I digress. I wanted to share more about my engagement ring. We actually got it off Etsy! The main reason why I wanted to get it from Etsy was because brick and mortar jewellers were charging exorbitant prices for rings and there weren’t much options to choose from.

In hindsight, I shouldn’t have ordered the ring too early as there were a lot of year end sales. Also, my perception of sizes were a bit skewed even though I had my own promise ring to reference. For future ring purchases, I would definitely want to get a smaller sized ring with a thicker band.
