She Was Expecting a Souvenir, She Got an Engagement Ring!


Amy & Joe

How they met

Joe was my sister’s co-worker at the time.

The proposal

My fiance had been working in Canada for a month when he finally was able to come home. He always picks up souvenirs for the family whenever he passes through airports for our printers box. When he arrived he sat our two children and myself down with his bag in hand.

First he pulled out a cowboy boot key chain and stated that it came from Houston, TX. Then he pulled out a buffalo pin and said it came from Fort McMurray, AB. Next, he pulled out a cowboy hat pin and stated that it came from Calgary, AB. And lastly, he said, “And, this came from Parkersburg, WV (our home town)”, as he pulled out the engagement ring and proceeded to propose. And, I said “YES!”

The engagement ring

The ring was a collaboration of two different rings selected by my Fiance at Roger’s Jewelers. It is a 2 ct. natural blue Sapphire set in a 14 kt. white gold band lined with 5/8 ct. diamonds
