I'm in the hospitality industry . I had to work unfortunately on this day. I came home from work and all our family members were together and being festive.
I was just in time for handing out gifts, my husband
gave me a present...... it felts like an empty box.
It was wraped in 10 diffrent type of papers.
Eventualy I managed to open it and received the most beautifull ring with my husband on his knees in tears poping the questions. The most amazing day of my life.
