Beyond Basic Blog The Proposal Beyond Basic Blog The ProposalBeyond Basic Blog The ProposalBeyond Basic Blog The ProposalI have been dating my fiancé for quite some years now. We actually just celebrated our 5 year anniversary! Our relationship has gone through so much in such a short amount of time. I am just happy that I am sharing this stage of my life with someone who keeps me balanced and supports me in all things I do. Today I am partnering with Jewelers Mutual to share the story of us and our engagement.

My fiancé and I were just starting to date when he got into a really bad skiing accident that left him in the hospital for over a month. He almost died while he was in the hospital. I stayed by his side throughout all his nine surgeries and helped him through his long recovery process.

Right around the time my fiancé got back on his feet, I was working a job that I felt was holding me back from creative growth. Now that he was getting stronger day by day, I decided it was time to make a change for myself. It is very difficult and quite scary to go from a paycheck you can count on, to the unknown territory of self-employment. He was so amazing through this transition of my life. He assured me that we would get through this together and that nothing would get in the way of the life we were building. He also reminded me that he was committed to me from the moment I showed him kindness and compassion during his time of need, ensuring me that he would be crazy to let someone like that get away.

Our engagement was a long time coming but we were finally both in the right place for the next chapter of our lives. I got really excited when we started shopping for the ring. I knew exactly what I wanted. However, finding the perfect ring can be daunting and if you are ever stuck in the process learn what brides-to-be want in an engagement ring. When my fiance got on his knee to propose to me when we were up in the redwoods, I was not only relieved, but completely overjoyed!

Immediately after getting engaged, you get thrown in the process of planning the wedding. While it can be hectic, I knew having my engagement ring insured would give me a piece of mind. I have read a lot of reviews about Jewelers Mutual on the internet and on multiple wedding boards. I feel that Jewelers Mutual is the expert in jewelry insurance, unlike other general insurance companies. If you need more information, I found this infographic about Jewelry Insurance 101 to be extremely helpful.
